3 Reasons I’m Looking Forward to StarWest

With StarWest rapidly approaching, we’re looking forward to immersing ourselves in everything related to software testing. We are also excited to share what we’ve learned since we last met at StarEast to show everyone what AI in software testing can do. So what are we excited about?

Learning More About Your Biggest Headaches

As we focus on solving the bottlenecks that persist across the development cycle, we must consistently listen. We are always amazed by the ways teams hack together solutions for their individual development processes. However, we also think some of these problems can be solved systematically, leaving more time for people to focus on outputs rather than building internal tools. Look for us at Booth 32 or on the floor of the event to tell us how you’re testing today, how you interact with the rest of the development team, what tools you’re using (or planning to use), and what gaps remain unsolved.

Discussing the Future of AI in Testing

We’re always looking for ways to solve problems, not introducing technology for the sake of clinging to buzzwords. With all the talk of AI in IT, it becomes impossible to separate fact from fiction and present from future. We look forward to demystifying how we think about applying AI throughout the development process, discussing why it’s important to evaluate solutions by outcomes—like time savings or accuracy—and showing why solutions must be simple to adopt. You can swing by one of our two sessions to learn more.

Networking

We are excited to meet with testers from some of the world’s largest companies to share ideas, socialize, and work together on advancing the present and future of testing. Everyone there is passionate about software testing, and we’re delighted for the opportunity to meet folks across industries and practices. We will also be on the lookout for thought leaders, innovators, and passionate practitioners who are finding new ways of testing and are happy to share their ideas. The software tester community is rapidly evolving, with new opportunities you can’t even imagine until you learn about them in a conference hallway or lunch table.
