With the growing pressure of digital disruption, enterprises find themselves facing the need for speed—and change. DevOps has emerged to enable this change and help speed up time to market and cross-team collaboration. As a result, DevOps has transformed how we test and our daily testing routines.

But what does this mean for manual testing? Have you made the decision to use it or lose it?

Join this web seminar to learn why the adoption of DevOps doesn’t mean the death of manual testing.

Learn:

  1. What the future holds for the role of manual testing and UI test automation
  2. How teams can achieve their required level of testing, without slowing down the acceleration initiative
  3. What these changes mean for testing service providers

The mobile testing landscape is undergoing a transformation driven by faster execution time and persona skill matching.

Moving to continuous testing means every team member is responsible for quality, and this has led to the rise of new testing frameworks such as Espresso (focused on Android) and XCUITest (focused on iOS native apps testing).

Join this web seminar to learn the key differences between each framework (including Appium) and understand the benefits of XCUITest for iOS native apps testing.

You’ll also learn:

  • The pros and cons of the three leading test frameworks for mobile apps­
  • How to extend Appium, Espresso, and XCUITest using advanced reporting and automation at scale in the cloud
  • The best methods for testing a native iOS 11 app on the latest iPhones (iPhone X and iPhone 8)

You know that testing and quality is important, right?
Okay, prove it.

Exactly how much money do you think testing saves? Yes, that’s right saves.

Testing is often thought of as a regrettable cost center, something that must be funded to avoid some dimly-understood “bad stuff that could happen.”

In fact, software testing and other quality assurance activities save money. Typically, every dollar spent on testing saves eight dollars in the long run.

In this One Key Idea session, Rex will demonstrate the use of cost of quality, a technique known for over 50 years, using a real world case study and a spreadsheet you can download and use that same day.

Learn How Valuable Your Testers Are!
