A Tale of Continuous Testing

David Lumpkin

When the atmosphere is hostile to QA, and yet the demands on the QA Team are increasing, how do you transform a team where everything is tested and deployed manually, to an organization that delivers great software multiple times a day? Where do you start and how do you create the strategy for implementing Continuous Testing? Join David Lumpkin as he shares his company's journey to answer these questions and the team's evolution along the way. Over a three-year period, Craftsy went from an environment hostile towards QA, to one that embraces automation and exploratory testing, achieving the right level of coverage for every use case, device and browser. It wasn’t easy though and David shares their experience through many experiments, failures and revisions that finally made Continuous Testing a reality. If you're looking to learn from someone who's taken on the Continuous Testing challenge in the real world and won, then join David for this session and take away lessons, hints, tips and techniques for success.
