Web broadcast on of Thursday’s meeting.

To instrument or to automate, that is the question, or not

Test methodologies keep evolving and the new trend is telemetry. While it makes a lot sense to base your post-release quality assurance strategy on telemetry, it’s not that intuitive and straightforward pre-release. It is common to rely on test passes (manually or automated) and pass/fail validation in controlled environments to sign off a product for release. This talk will discuss possible approaches for using telemetry for pre-release sign off and the benefits in doing so.
