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

Agile and DevOps certainly don’t move at a leisurely summer pace. Developers have already recognized that today’s “low-code/no-code” approaches are an efficient way to satisfy the relentless demand for more software, faster. Yet, most testers continue wrestling with the high-maintenance, script-based testing approach designed decades ago. 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.

Add to calendar
Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:00am

This case study will look at the practical steps we took to build a culture of quality within WHMCS Engineering and highlight concrete steps you can take in your department to shape the culture of quality...
