PentaBAR: Testing Strategy – The Key to Success for Testers and Developers

PentaBAR: Testing Strategy – The Key to Success for Testers and Developers

In this video, you will join Andrei Gavrila, Head of Products & Agile Coach at Pentalog, in a though-provoking discussion about the key pillars to building a top-notch testing strategy for developers and testers.

Test strategy is usually oriented toward QA Testers, but what would happen if developers got involved into the game plan? Is QA absolutely necessary or should developers do their own testing? Why should developers be involved in this strategy and not just the QA engineers?

In this PentaBAR episode, Andrei aims to break myths and shed light on the testing process that helps meet all the development objectives, from a quality assurance perspective.

Find out how to build a winning testing strategy, as you discover:

  • Two myths that kill testing strategies
  • Objectives and tactics in testing strategies
  • Three types of strategy flows (use cases)
  • Fails & lessons learned
