Five years ago, Rex gave a talk in Tokyo and in Portland where he talked about five trends which were affecting testing, putting testers’ careers at stake, creating both risks and opportunities. The trends: globalization; test automation; commoditization; compliance, regulation, and tort law; and, education and certification.
In this webinar, Rex will revisit each of those five trends now, five years on. He’ll talk about the effects that have occurred, the effects that have not occurred, and the effects that are yet to occur. He’ll give you ideas about how to effectively handle these trends, and also some hints about new trends that are emerging.
