Failure of software after it has entered production is common place and often attributed to gaps in the testing phase. A robust test strategy is critical in reducing the high rate of bugs found late in the software development lifecycle. Andrew Shaw joins us to explore his experiences of how successful test strategies can be one of a business' greatest assets for reducing the unexpected costs incurred by glitchy software.
Throughout the talk, Andrew will provide expert advice for producing high quality test scripts, how to improve the success of functional and exploratory testing, testing under extreme constraints, and crucially, how to think more like a tester. In a highly competitive market place, businesses are focussing hard on improving time to market through the introduction of automated testing.
Andrew will outline the key advantages, disadvantages and common myths of using automated testing as a test strategy. For anyone in a testing role, or looking for a career move into testing, Andrew provides a thought provoking and inspirational insight into how to develop your knowledge and experiences as a professional software test engineer and accelerate your career.
