Rapid Testing in High-Velocity Environments: Introduction to METS (Minimal Essential Testing Strategy)

Add to calendar

It’s going live tonight! How can we test all these changes when given only a few hours for testing? In this session, Greg Paskal presents the Minimum Essential Testing Strategy (METS), a testing methodology he developed nearly 20 years ago and used by companies across the world. Designed to help your Test Engineers adapt to rapid software and environment changes. The METS strategy enhances your current testing efforts by supercharging your existing capabilities and bringing a new focus to testing the right things in the timeframe given. You’ll walk away with a starter METS strategy and the necessary skills to adapt it to your organization’s needs. We'll also cover some advanced METS techniques, which include the ability to identify great candidates for Test Automation and developing a sustainable, manual testing approach, useful in training new Test Engineers. Come prepared to add this powerful METS testing approach to your existing test arsenal.
