Agile Testing for Embedded and IoT Software Development

Add to calendar

Much of the success of agile adoptions is due to the automated testing approach used in agile projects. Because many of these techniques were pioneered in the development of web applications, it can be difficult to see how these techniques can be leveraged for a project where software is being built for an embedded or Internet of Things (IoT) application. Thomas Stiehm describes ways to leverage agile testing techniques for embedded systems. Whether you are building a medical device, embedded controller, or IoT device, learn how to leverage these testing practices to create fully automated tests that fit into a DevOps build pipeline and help your team create higher-quality, more reliable software. Test automation, the best way to maintain and execute a comprehensive suite of regression tests, allows you to maintain control of your testing process while increasing test coverage. Join Thomas to see how you can take control of your test process by stepping up your test automation to the next level.
