All those from testing fraternity who got to be a part of 2 days of Pune Software Testing Conference -2016, clearly had a lot of thought-provoking viewpoints to take back home. Software testers at a two-day conference have called for a change in testing techniques in view of rapid advances in digitization. Participants at the PSTC-2016, that concluded on Thursday, Nov-10, stressed the need for a transformation in testing techniques with digitization taking over business.
Software testing typically -- but not exclusively -- attempts to execute a program or application with the intent of finding software bugs, errors or other defects. The job of testing is an iterative process as when one bug is fixed, it can illuminate other, deeper bugs, or can even create new ones. To deepen the vision and objective of testing to a clearer goal, the conference was organized into four thematic sessions -- Models and Methods; Business Change and Digital; Tools and Technology; and People and Skills. Amongst the international speakers sharing their views and directions were Wolfgang Platz, founder & CPO of Tricentis; Rakesh Samal, Vrushali S. and Chiranjib B. from Tata Consultancy Services; and Kavita Kulkarni from Infosys.
The conference was preceded by TestAutothon, first of its kind, which was followed by two days of inspiring sessions. The event that drew a cross-section of the testing community was the brain child of STeP-IN, a community that claims to be amongst the biggest amongst testing professional spread across Asia region. Apart from the presentations, this event stood out for three unique themes, The Kaleidoscope, Table Topics and Brain Boosters.
