Software Architecture for Testers– Where the Bodies are Buried!

Preview
Thursday, October 6, 2022 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

This session is designed to provide an overview of software architecture and design to testers so that you can understand how the different tiers and components fit together in a modern, complex system, and help you assess where the risks lie.
