Why Scriptless Test Automation is Perfect for Agile and DevOps

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Agile and DevOps certainly don’t move at a leisurely summer pace.

Why not follow development’s lead and start taking a new, more lightweight approach to testing? Join James Senecal as he presents scriptless test automation strategies and best practices that make Continuous Testing a breeze.

Instead of creating a QA Department, we built QA/QA/QE practices into how we worked as an engineering department.
