Succeeding with Rapid and Continuous Testing

Add to calendar

All organizations are running to keep pace with the transformative changes in software development and delivery. You’re on the hook for immediately automating more and more tests to support a more rapid or continuous flow of new features, delivered into production. So, where do you start? Must testers become coders and automate to survive? Must everything be automated? Jeffery Payne argues that the need to automate almost all tests is a misconception. Jeffery explores how automated testing and manual testing are best balanced during rapid and continuous testing. See how you can employ different testing approaches—exploratory testing, security testing, and test-driven development—that seek to find and fix defects as quickly as possible. Explore techniques for incrementally performing testing activities. Discover new ways to employ both manual and automated testing in your organization to respond to the business need of delivering software products to market faster—with the right level of quality.
