Many testers work in a situation where quality is important, but there’s not enough time to make all the tests you would like. In his keynote, Rikard shares his 21 years of experience in testing. He explores what makes it difficult, and how, with experience he finds more important information faster. Learn how to change your mind more easily when the current methods are no longer the best.
It’s all down to the understanding of software, of testing, of the domain, and the concrete situation you’re working in. Your understanding of testing is never finished as you learn more about the product and it’s relations – and the relations is key. You can never understand one thing in isolation. Get a broader understanding and see examples of learning paths in a complex world.

Today, we have hi-tech advances happening where exclusive software is being built to support fancy projects like reaching and exploring mars. We also have mindful technologies evolving to serve sustainable development use cases in the area of climate tech, agri tech, edtech, etc, to make the world a safer place. There are businesses preparing to serve the next billion users who will move out of poverty and have economic access to spend on technology for the first time
How does this impact what testers do? Smita shares what she’s learnt about the next economy, and what technology changes we are seeing across users. Do we understand the users of these new technologies? Are we ready to meet the needs of our customers of the next technology? Learn the potential technology risks, and how we as testers can align better to the new world view.
- How is the technology going to shape up for the diverse set of users?
- Key quality factors that the new age software are looking for
- Redesigning the test strategy (including team and tools) for the “next” age software
Every day, more and more organizations are taking on “digital transformation”, leaning on software and machinery to perform jobs, make decisions and solve problems. Machines do work that has traditionally been done by humans, or that couldn’t be done by ordinary humans unaided by machinery. Every day, the reach of what machines can do is extended by technological advancements, growing bodies of data and by human ambition.
If we intend to be responsible problem-solvers, we should ask if our solutions have really addressed the problems. Are the problems left unsolved? Or have we perhaps introduced new ones? Are there things we’re forgetting in the rush? As software changes, accelerating and extending our capacity to do things in the world, we need testing and our ideas about it to respond to those changes. As we go through our digital transformations, Michael asks: are there things we’re forgetting in testing too?

The world is constantly changing, and everything is impermanent. After the last two years, we have been forced to come to terms with how quickly and drastically things can change. As IT professionals, we are aware of the intrinsic changeability of projects, contexts and our business, but the events of the last couple of years have put this into sharper focus. How will external changes shape our teams and our work?
How can we shape ourselves proactively in order to be able to respond to changes, make changes or our own and even thrive? Alex looks at what factors are at work now, and what kinds of effects will they have on how we work, and the roles of testers and software professionals. She will also look at concrete activities on an individual and company level, to best prepare ourselves for a nebulous future.

Many organizations are not ready to accept the differences between exploratory testing and more traditional testing methods. As testers who have an exploratory approach to testing, it can be challenging to gain acceptance and buy-in from leadership. Often, people you are trying to sell to are left asking “What the hell kind of testing is that?” and not in a good way.
Nancy Kelln has implemented exploratory testing concepts at various organizations over the past ten years – Her experience spans implementing these concepts as a tester, a test lead, and as a manager. She also has experience in selling exploratory testing to testing teams, management, and stakeholders. Nancy examine the lessons learned when shifting testing to new methods, what worked, what didn’t, as well as how to recover when things go awry.
- Tricks to pivot your testing to implement new ideas in your organization
- How to recover when newly implemented ideas go sideways
- How to reignite your spark and passion for great software testing.
