S12-1001: Software Testing at Startups

Track: Leadership Perspectives for Testers

As a start-up moves from seed-stage to growth-stage to established company, the goals of testing, the techniques and practices leveraged, and the makeup of the team involved change. In this session, we will explore how you can best support the current testing done by developers, how different external forces push teams to evolve how they think about testing over time, and how you can become more proactive in anticipating what your product’s testing needs will be in the future. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of what founders are looking for when it comes to software quality, what activities teams struggle with as they try to scale their operations, and how they can adapt their craft to fit the current needs of their organization.
