How will I Survive a DevOps Transformation?

Download to read offline

If you’ve shifted left and right so many times, I imagine it’s hard to remember where you started from? The direction of shift was always within a Test Managers gift, but wasn’t obvious. It’s time to shift towards testability.

Ash Winter, Principal Test Engineer at Sky Betting & Gaming covers the following:

⦁ examples of the benefits of an enhanced testability focus
⦁ how focusing on testability can keep Test Managers relevant in changing times
⦁ introduction of a holistic model of testability to expand thinking
⦁ brainstorming – how can test leaders contribute to a testability culture?

Ash said:
“I believe that testability and organisational success are linked. Testable systems are easier to support and maintain. Being able to observe and control systems is a unifying force across disciplines. Why would one not wish to focus on such benefits?"

TestBoss is an award winning invitation-only networking event for leaders in Test Management, hosted by IT recruitment specialist Corecom Consulting.
