EUROPE'S GREATEST AGILE SOFTWARE TESTING FESTIVAL!

November 13–17, 2017 Potsdam, Germany

Trends and Future in Software testing

Where do we go from here?

The testing profession is changing, what should a tester do to stay in demand and add value

5 years ago the Dutch Test Association published a book that described the changes in the testing profession (https://djdegrood.wordpress.com/books/bepaal-je-koers-toekomst-en-trends-in-testen/). I was one of the 7 authors and we organized a few workshop on the theme. This year 4 of the others will host a retrospective workshop in which the participants will judge the predictions we made. Key question during this workshop will be: What is the status of the profession and what skills and role should a tester take in order to add value and a job.

This presentation will share the results that will come out of this workshop. In a lively presentation I will share the highlights of the book, tell what predictions were correct and which were incorrect. But most of all I will share the opinion of or fellow testers: What do roles do they have now, and what roles do they expect to have in 5 years from now.

Join this session if you are sometimes worried about the sustainability of your role, if you want to specialize yourself but wonder what specialisms are a safe bet, if you want to stay ahead of the game and be prepared for the future.
