Conference Talk: Staying Ahead of "Innovation"
Presenter: Greg Waters
Call it Agile, RUP, Iterative, Paired Development, DevOps... whatever... it's just a mix of best practices tried and tested over time. It is the underlying technology advances that shift the needle. For example, automated deployment tool sets or unit test frameworks. So for QA to stay ahead of these trends we need to anticipate shifts, embrace change and take control.. even at the cost of upsetting staff or adopting unconventional solutions.
