Setting Up Tomorrow's Testers for Success
We have coding bootcamps, free online coding academies, and many other platforms to teach people programming skills. However, there are not similar programs for testers and other QA professionals. How do we nurture the next generation of talent, help people transition into the software testing discipline, and give future testers the best chance to be successful? Adam Sandman will detail how you can set up programs to make the transition into the testing/QA workforce easier, using actual examples and case studies as demonstrations. We will discuss how you can implement certifications in software testing, encourage part-time and flex-time working on integrated agile projects, and onboard individuals who have had careers outside of tech. Come learn some best practices for bringing new people into the testing/QA field, including training and mentoring ideas.
