As a quality engineer, you have to constantly be learning. Not only do you test constantly changing software, the list of tools and frameworks out in the world is ever-growing.  How do you stay on top of all that, and continue to grow as a quality engineer for your organization and your own development? Here’s the trick -- you need to convince your organization to give you the freedom to implement new tools and techniques, which allows you to grow as an engineer, and benefits the organization, if the new technology pans out.  It’s always a risk/reward calculation. In this talk you will learn how to identify business problems, and convince stakeholders in your company that it’s worth taking the risk implementing new testing technologies to solve them. Together we will identify 4 problems, and how load testing, visual regression testing, security testing, and accessibility testing were able to be implemented in hopes of solving them.  These new technologies didn’t always pan out, but the experience of implementing them always revealed something interesting about how we think about software and quality.
