Who's Ready for Post-Modern Testing?
It’s been four years since Brent Jensen and Alan Page published the Modern Testing Principles (moderntesting.org). The Principles aren’t that modern, and aren’t that much about testing, but they struck a chord with a lot of software teams across the industry. More and more teams are delivering high quality software by leveraging customer data, focusing on continuous improvement, and recognizing the importance of a culture of quality on their teams. In fact, we believe that some software organizations are moving past modern testing into something newer and better.
In this talk, Alan Page will reflect a bit on what he and Brent have learned and absorbed over the past five years, talk briefly about the current state, and look into what could be the beginning of the Post-Modern Testing movement.
