Testing: Software Development Catalyst

Testing is not an isolated activity. It interacts with and influences other disciplines in software development such as design, coding, release management, and deployment. As testers, our skills and experiences add value far beyond the immediate context of verifying functionality. Threats to value other than software errors exist.

Yet our discussions are often constrained to the testing space, omitting the connections to, and dependencies on, other roles and activities. Testing is an integral discipline of software development, and often plays an active and important role in bridging gaps between technical and business-focused roles, between leaders and engineers, and between makers and users.

How does the testing piece fit into the software development puzzle? How does – and how should – testing interact with other disciplines in software development? How can we most effectively add value to the software development projects we participate in?

Please join us for our 11th annual conference at the Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre campus in downtown Vancouver, Canada, August 8-10 2016.

VersionOne
Agile Tester
Greater Atlanta Area
Software testing speaker, workshop facilitator, author, and blogger. Agile software tester working closely with product development team. I help teams to craft more testable user stories. Testing teacher, unit and integration test review and advisement, exploratory testing coach. Exploratory tester and test automator.
Claire Moss has always had a passion for writing, which might be a strange trait for a discrete mathematician, but that doesn’t stop her from blogging or writing testing articles.
After working briefly as a software programmer during college, Claire signed on as a quality engineer after graduation. By now, Claire has been testing software for 13 years. When you find your calling, you never look back! You might say she’s a compulsive empiricist when it comes to software. Claire continues to use her evil powers for good on the job and on her blog.
Claire has been known to say: I break software. Other people fix it. Best job in the world. I break it. You buy it. I use my evil powers for good! Test everything; retain what is good. — 1 Thessalonians 5:21 I am a big nerd.
