Presented by Quality Assurance
QA has seen so much happen in the last 5 years, from mobile, to cloud, to social media and beyond - challenging every company to do things faster and still maintain high quality. The question on the table is: Where does QA go from here? We’ve been hearing from our members that they would like a discussion about the future of Quality Assurance, Testing methodologies, and the impact it may have on our career paths. This is highlighted by the need to define the role of QA on an Agile team, which may differ from the classic "career QA” path.
We have assembled a panel of thought leaders representing the academic, business, and practitioner view to discuss and clarify the future path of QA . We hope you can join us for this interactive lunch event!
