There’s a common belief in the software industry that developing software and testing software are so fundamentally different, that it’s nearly impossible for a single person to do both well. Alan Page spent nearly 20 years building test teams that fully invested in this approach and led thousands of testers and test teams towards this vision. A common belief remains in the industry that testing and development require completely different mindsets to accomplish successfully.
But for the last six years, Alan has been working on teams without testers, working with developers and helping them to embrace testing as part of their role. In this effort, Alan has discovered that building and creating software - and holistically testing and evaluating that software are outcomes that are not only possible, but a more efficient way to deliver high-quality software.
In this webinar, Alan will elaborate on the difference between mindsets and skill sets, drawing on his background in software, as well as his experience composing and arranging music. He’ll share a few examples of what he’s seen as he’s helped software developers adopt and embrace testing as part of their skill set. And, of course, there will be ample time for questions and debates.
We will be able to continue the discussion over on this thread, together with Alan himself, even after the webinar today
