Shifting the Mindset from QA to QE
February 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CST
The industry has taken a shift on how the role of Quality is viewed. The overall expectation of the role has also changed. Let’s dive into how we shift our minds from black box thinking of the application in which we test, to actually understanding the application in its entirety. This in turn changes what we put in our test suites/banks and improves our way of testing completely. No more QA person that just understands the application in which only the end-user understands but also the understanding of which the architect and engineer who built the software. Let’s empower ourselves to become better testers by becoming more technical.
