In this session, we will cover:

  • How to efficiently build a solid testing pyramid, from unit tests to automated and manual functional tests
  • Best practices for Continuous Testing, including the use of dynamic test environments and disposable test data
  • How to leverage Intelligent Analytics, such as Change-Based Testing, Modified Code Coverage, and Risky Code Changes, to prioritize your agile testing activities

Putting these together will allow you to unlock your shift-left potential.
