Sell Testing - Enabling Quality Breakthroughs
9:15 - 10:15 Senate Chamber
In the rapidly evolving landscape of software development, achieving and maintaining high-quality software is a paramount challenge. This talk explores the multifaceted journey of elevating software quality by enabling software quality contributors to influence change through the trilogy of: • People – Who can you engage outside of Software QA to champion your cause. • Process – How to effectively communicate the benefits of QA processes outside of the QA team to drive change. • Technology – Based on the ‘People’ and ‘Process’, how can we leverage stakeholders and communication to help drive changes to the technologies we use to test better. Join us for an engaging discussion on how software quality can be elevated through a comprehensive approach that seeks out stakeholder communication, optimizes processes, and leverages technology to drive meaningful change in today's software development ecosystem.
