Closing the Gap in Regression TestingShekhar Bhole
About the Topic
Software development and change go hand-in hand. By the time we send one release into production, the next release might already be in progress. Every time a system is modified and/or enhanced, there is good chance that the existing functionality might be broken un-intentionally, which may go un-caught if there are inadequacies in regression testing. Regression Testing is perhaps the most neglected and highly under-estimated part of software testing. Under the mounting pressure of meeting testing deadlines, when the stakes are high and reputations are on the line - regression testing is usually the one that gets hit, sacrificed, compromised, neglected, bruised and buried alive. Add this to the complexity of new trends, tools, technologies and rapid pace of application development in recent times; we will have a perfect recipe for failure of our systems in production. In this session we will see comprehensive regression test strategy, how to close gaps in the regression test coverage and efficiently leverage automation for this purpose.
