Games Testers Play to Improve QA!

This uber interactive presentation will incorporate games, puzzles, brainteasers and fun to educate you on several cost-effective strategies you can use to improve the skills of your team, the QA and software testing processes within your organization, and the overall quality of your applications! A focus will be placed on strategies and techniques that can be rapidly implemented so that your organization can see the return on time and effort. We’ll address the many facets of QA and software testing in a logical sequence to include (but not limited to): building and maintaining a skilled software testing team, effective test case design, test data generation, test execution, and defect analysis. Techniques such as risk analysis, test automation, peer reviews, equivalence partitioning, pair-wise testing, positive contagion, and decision tables will be examined. Far too often approaches and best-practices, known to improve the overall quality process, are abandoned or never event started. Why? Because they’re considered to be time-consuming and expensive to implement.

This 2-part session will demonstrate this does NOT have to be the case. Be ready to THINK! Be ready to LEARN! Be ready to have FUN!
