QUEST 2014 Conference and EXPO Sessions:
If you are currently using one of the open source tools such as Selenium, FitNesse, Cucumber, or Watir or you are interested in learning more about these tools, come join the Open Source Tools Roundtable. This will be an open discussion forum, so be sure to bring your questions and your experiences to share. This session will be facilitated by a Testing Tools Exchange panelist and provides you the opportunity to learn more about his/her tool success story.
Despite the number of commercial and open source tools available today for requirements management, test management, test automation and defect management, spreadsheets are still the most frequently used “tool” in documenting requirements, test cases and defects. Testing organizations may want to use tools to improve productivity and collaboration, but often lack the time, budget, skills, standards, and processes to effectively implement or expand their usage of testing tools. Tools can easily become abandoned or replaced by another tool having greater promise.
QUEST is on a mission to foster the exchange of success stories in implementing and using testing tools, regardless of the specific tool. Come join QUEST’s Testing Tools Information Exchange and hear about innovative and value-added approaches to implementing and using testing tools.
