In our inaugural One Key Idea session, we looked at how use pairwise testing to examine combinations of inputs, configuration values, types of data, and the like.

This is a great technique when the interaction between these factors is unpredictable. However, in some cases, specific business rules govern these interactions.

How can we model these business rules and use that model

to develop a reasonable set of tests?

Simple: decision tables.

In this One Key Idea session, Rex will explain the basics of this fundamental technique.

Learn how to create and use these straightforward, table-based representations of business logic in your daily work.

The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures.

How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in.

Join this web seminar to discover why and how continuous testing is different from traditional test automation.

Learn:

  • The three main differences between continuous testing and test automation
  • Where traditional test automation falls short in modern development and delivery processes
  • How testers can address each of the three key elements of continuous testing
  • How to integrate various testing practices (including model-based testing, risk-based testing, change-based testing, and exploratory testing) in order to achieve the speed and agility required for release

Breaking The Barriers Between Dev & Ops

DevOps aims to break the barriers between Dev and Ops. This also necessitates breaking the barriers between Dev, Test and Ops.

Testing operations undergo a major change in a DevOps culture. Therefore, everything changes for testing.

  • The tester’s skillset,
  • Methods,
  • The way they test,
  • When they test and
  • The way they plan and execute.

DevOps brings testing into the mainstream of development processes, and avoids the problems created by having “big-bang” testing left to the end of the cycle, such as release delays, and quality issues.

In this session, Alan Koch (LinkedIn profile) & Chris Knotts, PMP – (LinkedIn profile) will give you a brief overview of DevOps and the impact on Software Testers.

A critical challenge in transitioning to continuous integration (CI) and continuous development (CD) is creating a flexible testing environment that moves the focus from test support teams to IT infrastructure, DevOps, and automation tools.

Legacy tools meant to manually run load tests won’t cut it alone—you need a solution to automate and scale your testing process.

Join this web seminar to learn how a multi-billion dollar financial organization created a net savings of more than 500 man hours of testing and scripting per year using agile performance testing with CI/CD and application performance management (APM).

Gain new insights into how shifting your testing focus can improve development speed, costs, and quality.

Learn:

  • The importance of automation and continuous load testing
  • How to integrate CI/CD into your test environment
  • How APM enables load testing to be more efficient

Developing a QA strategy that scales to meet the changing needs of a growing organization is a major challenge. Traditional testing techniques can’t keep up with a fast-paced development cadence.

For many of these growing software companies, determining whether a product or feature is ready to ship is difficult, and there is no one-size-fits-all strategy.

Join this web seminar to discover how testing needs change as a company grows, and how your team can adapt its QA strategy to an agile approach that fits.

Learn the key factors expanding software companies must consider to optimize their QA strategy for both speed and quality.

You will learn how to:

  1. Find the balance between deployment speed and code quality
  2. Determine the scope of testing that is appropriate for your organization
  3. Develop a forward-thinking QA strategy that scales with your team
