Webinar Date: November 5, 2020 | 10:30 AM PDT

In this webinar, software engineer Kate Green will go over a framework for evaluating your testing situation in order to find your organization’s sweet spot.

The challenge for every product is to ship bug-free code as often as possible. Whether you are an early stage startup with a pilot application or a large corporation with myriad services, you’re dealing with this problem every day.

 We usually end up with either too little or too much testing and it’s hard to find the sweet spot. Too little testing and you have bugs and application instability, leading to time spent fixing bugs and manually regression testing your apps. You’re asking yourself, “isn’t there an easier way to do this?” Too much testing and you have slow release times and high automation maintenance costs. In this scenario, you’re asking yourself, “are the bugs I’m catching worth the time I’m spending maintaining this code?”

In this webinar, software engineer Kate Green will go over a framework for evaluating your testing situation in order to find your organization’s sweet spot.

Key Takeaways:

  •  Understanding where you are today

  •  Identifying weak, brittle, or buggy parts of your application

  •  Figuring out where to test first, and with what types of tests

  •  How to pare down an excessively large automation suite

  •  Measuring test effectiveness
