Daily seminar



Have you ever wondered how to tackle a new testing project? Or maybe an existing one, but with real QA issues… Where would you start? Your boss expects improvement in the QA team performance and also wants to understand where the product stands real fast. You wish to optimize your work and have introduced automation, but the management do not really see the profit and return on investment. Your company management have recently decided to switch to Agile methodology. This real-life seminar will take you through the testing project bootstrap, including all required activities, from understanding the customer requirements, through design of manual tests and tips and tricks in that area followed by connecting your testing environment to testing automation and to CI process and at the end subject your application to Performance and Load testing. All these will be discussed in real project constraints context, taking into consideration team improvement issues as well as assessing the product readiness within tight schedule constraints. There will be real-life examples to support the discussion. Who should attend: Testers and QA team leaders responsible for testing projects, usually, for QA activities for a single product or a small integrated suite of products. You will learn about:

  • How to manually test a SUT in continuous development environment
  • Launching test automation and performance testing project based on the existing manual suite
  • Connecting your automated testing environment to continuous integration environment
