The Future of QA is Risk, Not Coverage

People want to know about coverage--code coverage, feature coverage, coverage percentages, coverage gaps--but coverage simply isn't good enough. Coverage can't tell you anything about the user experience, or the most important pieces to test. In fact, a 100% coverage score can't tell you anything qualitative about the quality of your product.

We have 5 different tools for testing web browsers, but the average QA team still can’t tell management precisely how their tests help to manage risk! Low-code test solutions exist by the dozen, but have failed to make a dent in the fundamental problems of test creation!

This talk is about the Great Unsolved Problems of test, and how we’ve long been chasing the wrong goals with the wrong tools. There's a vast ocean of insights sitting there waiting to tell us their stories and make our lives better. How can we continue to ignore it?

The session will also be streamed online and included with the online conference ticket.
