Track Talk F15

I’m in Love with the Shape of QA

Bart Van Raemdonck

15:00-15:45 CEST Friday 10th June

I’m going to talk about my first steps into the IT world, how I recognized that software testing was my passion, and how I fell in love with QA. I’ll also share the problems I encountered when I started testing 10 years ago, how I resolved some of those problems, and how my journey with test automation started.

For example:

  • How can you awaken the quality awareness on management level?
  • How do you start off with test automation, and how can you involve the whole team?
  • How can you measure your QA activities and evaluate them periodically?
  • How can you apply the definition of ready and the definition of done correctly, not just for 1 sprint but during your whole project?
  • What about teams that don’t have a software tester?


But not all problems are resolved: I will try to start a discussion about some topics by sharing my vision on:

  • Test documentation
  • Third party testing
  • Grey area testing
  • AI testing


I’m also going to share my view on how testing will evolve in the future – the shape of QA.
