Keynote: Test (R)evolution: An Expert Panel on Software Testing

The world is evolving faster now than any generation before. We are seeing technology grow exponentially and are moving from simple information systems to complex internet of things, mobile technology, and multiple variations of complex systems, services, and products.

As testers, we are being called on to keep up with the changes. We have no time to sit and watch the evolution of the new world. We are called on to lead a revolution of processes, practices, services, and tools to support our craft. The time is now to improve the testing practice to ensure we don’t get left behind.
