The history and future of software testing
What comes to your mind if you think about ‘testing’ as a profession? Fun? Boring? Exciting? Well, to be honest, many people think it’s pretty boring, very monotonous and an annoying task to do. They definitely don’t see themselves as future bug-hunters. That’s a pity as testing is actually big fun!
In this presentation, you will learn what testing is, why it’s so much fun and why it will even be more so in the future. You will be taken through a brief history of this profession, starting at the moment the first bug was found and taking you to where it is today – a time where testers are working in multidisciplinary teams and where testing is highly automated and technical. It doesn't stop there. You will also be taken to the near future, where testing is done using bots, machine learning and artificial intelligence. And we will show you how we already apply these technologies today in our work.
