QASource sponsors the Agilistry & QA Meetup Group. The goal of the group is to create a community where software engineers and developers can meet to learn new skills, build on current skill sets as well as network with other business professionals.
Last week, Melissa Tondi presented the webinar presentation, "Make the Shift to Quality Engineering," to the Agilistry & QA Meetup Group.
Melissa has spent most of her career working within software testing teams. She is the founder of Denver Mobile and Quality (DMAQ) and a board member of the Software Quality Association of Denver (SQuAD). Melissa is the director of quality engineering at EMS software, where she assists teams in continuously improving the pursuit of quality software-from design to delivery and everything in between. In her software testing and quality engineering careers, Melissa has focused on building and organizing teams around three major tenets-efficiency, innovation and culture. She created the Greatest Common Denominator (GCD) approach for determining ways in which team members can assess, implement and report on day to day activities so the gap between need and value is as small as possible.
In her highly informative presentation, Melissa discussed the future of software testing and how testers can make sure they are prepared for this future.
The main points discussed during this presentation were:
- What Quality Engineering is and isn't
- Innovation that supports Quality Engineering
- Traits and skills to consider when shifting to Quality Engineering
