Regression Testing: Ensuring Adequate Coverage and Prioritization

Software applications undergo continuous changes due to changes in customer requirements and business priorities. This means development teams continuously add and modify code from the centralized codebase. Modifying functionality has implications to other functionalities in the application where the affected code is reused or referenced, directly or indirectly.  Regression testing is the type of testing aimed at testing all existing functionalities in the application to ensure these code changes have not negatively affected existing application behavior. Join Bindhya Sathyapal as she provides key insights into challenges and solutions in regression testing with the central focus of testing business critical and highly impactful areas of the application. During her presentation, Bindhya will describe techniques for identifying core regression scenarios based on a variety of key factors and how to prioritize them so high priority test cases can be scheduled to run first. She will discuss when repeatable tests can or should be automated.  During her presentation, Bindhya will also provide guidance into the processes and procedures required to ensure the smooth ongoing maintenance and optimization of the regression test suite.
