Once again, this year’s QA or the Highway conference was a great success. A big “thank you” to our presenters and attendees for their contribution!
As winter comes to a close, we’re preparing for spring, and with it the inevitable spring cleaning, when it’s time for “out with the old, in with the new” – a theme we heard quite often at the recent QA or the Highway conference, held Feb. 16.
At the conference, we heard about new and better ways of testing, and we learned old habits we should abandon. Couldn’t attend this year? Below, we have extended recaps from three of our featured speakers, articles, including a series devoted to Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD) automation (a skill we’re always recruiting for and one where we’ve seen a great deal of growth here in Columbus) and more.
We’re excited to share this with all of you, and hope you learn a lot about Quality Assurance & Testing.
This past February in Columbus, 400+ passionate QA and testing professionals came together to focus not on academic theory or idea generation, but on the tactical mechanics of improving how testing is done.
