"The Future of Testing Is Here" by Ajay Balamurugadas

With technology changes being the only constant, it is challenging to predict what "moving forward" means for the industry in general, let alone you, the person attending this conference. A few ideas on the horizon include the future of centers of excellence, rise of more startups and test consultants. These will be closely challenged by industry practices such as crowd sourced testing approach, artificial intelligence and IBM's Watson. Some ponder on why software testing is not included in educational institutions and we might also consider the inter subjectivity revolution and the various modes of self-learning. Will we have an All-in-One standard and one big school of software testing?

The debate about programmers learning testing and testers learning to code might keep us busy for few more years. With the increased emphasis on para-functional tests, will we see a different testing strategy going forward? Let us not forget the impact of social media on the product and organization's reputation and the ever changing customer expectations. These are the sorts of things Ajay Balamurugadas thinks about when he considers the term 'Moving Testing Forward'. Some of them seem to have a definite answer, others are less clear. Ajay takes a look at the recent past and present to project at least one possible future (and likely many.), suggesting that we brainstorm on some of the authentic problems and revisit the unknown unknowns. Join Ajay, as he presents his perspective of the times ahead - His journey filled with rich stories and failures, and other experiences might just trigger a few ideas on how to take testing forward in your context.
