STARWEST 2024 Industry Presentation : The Future of Automation Testing


Wednesday, October 5, 2022 - 2:45pm to 3:30pm

The Future of Automation Testing

Since the first version of Karate was released five years ago, we have become a top choice for developers, QA teams, and enterprise customers. As we continue to keep our focus on users, we decided to bring together cross-industry experts, and futurists, to deliberate on some of the key trends and challenges and the ‘Future of Automation Testing’.

We decided to keep this technology agnostic and are grateful to have Joe Colantonio as the moderator. We get to discuss ideas and move it to a new level today with this discussion. This is in some ways our effort of trying to make the world a better place by improving the experience of developers, testers and finally - your end users.

Panel Moderator: Joe Colantonio, Founder TestGuild

  • Anthony Staffier, Principal Software Engineer, FIS Global
