    I like these aspects of the submission, and they should be retained:

    • The title, topic and its focus on software testing.

    I think the submission could be improved by:

    • The time division with respect to demos, 
    • Is there any feasibility to be make 45 mins length rather 90 mins.

    Further, do you have any video for previous talks/ training sessions. You may make one short video as well. Please have a look at Talk Acceptance process.

      Hi Madeedha,

      Thanks for your review

      Yes sure, I can reduce the session to 45 minutes. I will capture one video and share as soon as possible.

        Thanks Reji. The purpose to ask this question was to see possibility for 45 mins vs. 90 mins, provided the quality content is not affected at all.

        You may make a division, that if talk is 45 mins, what it covers, and if you want to keep it 90 mins, what it will be cover. or you can simply decide to keep one.

          Hi Madheeha,

          Please find the timing break of each topic, I can make sure that the quality of the content will not be disturbed due to the reduction in timing.
