Mobile apps have more users than PC apps, and people spend more time on mobile apps than on PC apps.

Mobile apps have been around since the 1990s, but the real explosion in mobile apps has occurred in the last ten years. And, while time-wasters and entertainment apps abound, mission-critical and safety-critical apps exist, and so quality matters.

What do we need to know about testing mobile apps?

It’s more than just a smaller screen, right?

In this webinar, Rex will describe the ten key things that mobile application testers must know. Join us for a quick introduction to the art and science of mobile app testing.

Online  Webinar – Recorded
Duration: 45 Minutes Credits: .75 PDU Category C – Free PDU
Presented by: TestHuddle.com

Last year Shmuel Gershon recorded a very nice webinar about taking notes while testing. It’s about 45 minutes long, so I recommend you taking some paper & pencil before watching it.

When you go to a conference, a talk, or watch a webminar, somebody is going to tell you something, be it an idea, a story, a set of instructions, whatever, and you better take notes.

Taking notes will help you understand and remember better. At the moment you are listening to the talk, everything might make sense in your head, but this is just because somebody else is driving you thoughts.

Would love to try something that came out in one talk?

Here is where some notes will help you more than anything else.

Shmuel Gershon (LinkedIn profile, @sgershon) is an experimented tester who specialized himself in exploratory testing and in note-taking.

 

In this webinar, Shmuel Gershon will explore what types of notes can be important for testers, and learn practical hints on how to take these notes.

These hints are based on experience and observations, and also on the way professionals from different domains like journalism or education take their own notes.

You can find more stuff from Shmuel at his site.

By 2020, 60% of digital businesses will suffer major service failures due to the inability of IT security teams to manage digital risk.

Gartner has released a new special report addressing cybersecurity as a critical part of digital business, with its broader external ecosystem and new challenges in an open digital world.

The pace of business accelerates to algorithmic speeds and material shifts in culture, behavior and technology are required. Security officers will work more like intelligence officers and trusted advisors as citizen and business-unit IT becomes the dominant model.

Organizations will learn to live with digital risk as business units innovate to discover what security they need and what they can afford.

Digital ethics, analytics, and people focus will be as important as technical controls.

In this webinar Paul E. Proctor, (LinkedIn profile) VP Distinguished Analyst discusses how to successfully  addresses cybersecurity in digital business.

Discussion Topics:

  • How leadership and governance will change to address digital business
  • How the evolving threat environment will impact cybersecurity investments
  • How cybersecurity should be addressed at the new edge (IoT/OT/safety)
  • Where people, process and cultural change fit into cybersecurity priorities

Getting valuable information from Projects is one of the top challenges faced by Executives.

Traditionally creating dashboards and reports required a technical guru to collect requirements from the executives and then to code their way to generating dashboards.

Usually this turns out to be far too expensive and a waste of valuable time (both in creating reports and going back and forth with the technical guru to meet your needs).

Fast forward to today, and now you can use Microsoft Power BI to quickly create reports and dashboards without the need for technical coding skills.

In this Webinar, learn how to create useful dashboards and reports that you can easily manage and share with other stakeholders at the click of a button from anywhere and on any device.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to create powerful Portfolio dashboards.
  • Learn how to leverage Natural Language Query with Power BI.
