Testing Like Batman
Presented by: Zephan Schroeder, Software Development Engineer in Test at Philips Healthcare
What's in your utility belt? What is in your colleague's utility belt? Where do you get your tools and information? Which hero do you test like?
We will touch on many test tools currently in use and outline categories of tools. We will also explore which tools are effective and when they are appropriate. Along the way we will discuss a few heroes and how your mindset is a critical factor for both success and personal happiness.
