Add to calendar

Do you want to take your testing skills to the next level? Are you trying to stay relevant on an agile team where testing is shifting to the left of the project timeline? Do you want to help your organization reap the full benefits of testing earlier? Join Tariq King as he explores the fundamentals of white box testing so can you find bugs as soon as they happen and do more thorough, targeted testing during software development. Learn how to apply white box testing techniques such as testing by looking, automated unit testing, mocking, and code coverage analysis. This introductory session is for everyone—of all programming skill levels. Tariq will explain core concepts and constructs used in modern programming and walk you through a set of practical code-based testing exercises. By the end, you will be ready and able to collaborate with developers in new ways that enable you to uncover defects faster, earlier, and more cost effectively.
