This week we're at the Agile Development/Better Software Conference West in Las Vegas, where software professionals gather to learn the most up-to-date information, tools, and trends regarding agile, project management, people and teams, software testing and QA, software requirements, process improvement, metrics, design, and architecture.
Testing in a Test-Driven World At StarEast, Jeff Payne of Coveros discussed why software testers with the right skill set are becoming the most influential individuals in the software development organization.
David Dang, with Zenergy Technologies Inc., led the engaging session "Mobile Testing Tools 101." There were some technical issues to begin with and the screen wasn't working, but David jumped right in and started his presentation without the aid of his slides.
I'll be honest: I attended this session for its fun title. However, presenter David Silk told everyone early on that the legal department at Warner Brothers, which owns Hanna-Barbera Productions now, wouldn't let him use the copyrighted cartoon images of their prehistoric and futuristic characters. Boo.
There was a pretty full house for the first keynote session of the STAREAST conference, "Testing in a Test-Driven World," with Jeff Payne. Delegates who couldn't get chairs sat on the floor in the back of the room, taking notes on their laptops and in their program guides.
