As testers in Agile and DevOps, we are challenged to champion quality in new and unique ways. We are challenged to develop innovative test approaches that focus on customer value. It is in using not only our technical expertise but more importantly, our skills in communication, collaboration and creativity in bringing innovative techniques such as test optimization, BDD and others to our test practices that we can make our most valuable contribution. Join Gerie Owen and Peter Varhol as they delve into the key skills that the modern tester needs to be innovative: communication, collaboration and creativity. Using real-life examples, Gerie and Peter will show how to can create intersections of creativity both individually and as a team.
