Dorothy Graham: On Testing NEW

“Madam, if you use this [software development] tool, you won’t need to do any testing!” Twenty-five years ago this comment reflected a typical attitude! Can you imagine someone saying this today? Sharing her testing journey and what she has learned through the years, Dot Graham, who has had an illustrious career in testing, leads a discussion on how testing’s past has influenced its present and how you will ultimately shape its future. To understand our history’s influence on our present and think about our future, come to listen, share your own stories, and question the present state of testing. Look at the “hot topics” of the past, what was important then, what is important now, and what will be important in the future. Examine what isn’t really much different now—in spite of a lot of change—and what seems really important now but probably isn’t. Join Dot for a lively dive into the past, present, and future of testing.
