Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 2:45pm to 3:45pm

Does Low Code Mean Low Testing?

Low Code and No Code are new on the block. There are very much low code and no code platforms and the number of organization that use low code or no code is growing. And does low code or no code mean we don't have to test or have to test less on these systems? We will go deep into this question in this talk and explore the risks of low code and no code systems. This presentation will start with a short introduction in low code. We will explain what they are, how they work and will tell that the vendors promise us and that reality is. In the second part we will dive deep into the question how low code effects testing. We will see that certain risks are definitely lower when a system is built on a low code platform, we will also see that some risks are definitely still there. We will end the presentation with a checklists of possible risks of low code systems, you can use this checklist in your product risk assessment. You can also use this checklist when some says you don't have to test low code systems. During the talk we will give different examples from the projects we did.
