Next Generation Testers – Glasgow, 31 May 2017

Join us in Glasgow at the next Scottish Testing Group meeting on May 31st, where the theme is “Automation”.

Dan Martland (Edge Testing) will be speaking on:

Next Generation Testers

In the early days of professional testing, structure and objectivity were seen as paramount – the best testers did what they were asked, how they were asked and never deviated from that. In the world of modern, high speed development we need a more dynamic approach. Are the kinds of people we have been recruiting historically still the best fit for our needs? What aptitudes and personal qualities will be needed to succeed in the next generation of testing?

UX? What about TX for Test Automation? – Glasgow, 31 May 2017

Join us in Glasgow at the next Scottish Testing Group meeting on May 31st, where the theme is “Automation”.

Isabel Evans (@IsabelE_Test) will be speaking on:

UX? What about TX for Test Automation?

Does test automation add value? Good automation does, but poor automation reduces value, delaying decisions, and increasing the likelihood of errors of judgement.

Automation tools are written and serviced by engineers, but people who use automation might not always be technical. To understand what they need, we need to understand them. User eXperience (UX) methods will help.

Test automation requires consideration of the UX for the tool and the tests, supporting improved decision making, and increasing automation’s value.
