Time: Thursday, Jan. 11, 2:15 PM - 3:00 PM

(Presented by Emily Kjos)
While the distinction between quality assurance and testing roles in software development isn’t always a clear line, communication and collaboration in development cycles are always a necessity. But, often, quality can take a backseat in considerations until products or features near release - which is far too late! Taking a team-centric approach to quality assurance and control can ease pressures, resource use, and obstructions in later development stages.

Leveraging her test garden as a tangible metaphor, Emily will explore different technologies, tools, and methodologies that could synchronize your team’s perspective on testing best practices, and help improve your QA processes as a whole.

Join this session for inspiration and insights to reframe your approach to whole-team, quality-first development!

Key Takeaways:
- Cultivation of quality takes foresight, execution, and consistent monitoring to fine-tune processes
- There is no singular method for creating quality; your definition should help define your approach
- The importance of the entire team’s buy-in for adoption of YOUR best practices
- The many ways releases and cycles can go awry; tips for prevention
