Outline/Structure of the Talk

Covering all use cases for your web app whether it's responsive, progressive or simply web based requires a proper mix and match of open-source as well as commercial tools. Recently low/no-code tools also joined the landscape complementing the code-based tests. In this session, I will cover the best practices in matching the tools to skillsets, requirements, and testing types to achieve sustainable test coverage and advance agile/deveops processes.

      "This world is such a beautiful place to live in." If you can read the first sentence without any screen readers or assistance, you're privileged. As technologists, shouldn’t we be more empathetic towards differently-abled people and make all parts of our website accessible to them? In my humble opinion, the true power of technology can be identified when it reaches out to people of all kinds having different physical or psychological challenges. We not only legally bound to provide Accessibility but also it should be considered as our moral responsibility.

      As testers, we have a wonderful opportunity to contribute to Accessibility by ensuring that the site is accessible in many different ways. Although it is impossible to identify all the issues that exist around Accessibility in the world, we are lucky enough to still understand a majority of them. With this understanding, there have been many measures taken in order to make your site accessible. But, don’t forget - we are QA engineers. We got to ensure that the site is accessible as per the standards set by WCAG 2.0 (AA) by testing for accessibility using various tools and techniques.

      Most testers follow the career path their organisation is offering them. Sometimes, this path seems dated. Specially when one compares them to other organizations which seem to be taking testing more seriously or are atleast more advanced in their approach to people and technology.

      What could be the possible options beyond a certain point as a tester? Will present certain questions to the testers - What do you enjoy doing most? What comes naturally to you? How does the competition look like? What could you potentially learn? What are the alternates or extended skills you enjoy - data science more or engineering more or something else? What are your super powers? What could be the path of least resistance to make a shift. Will share leading examples of some "popularly successful" career.

      In the 2nd half of the talk - will get the audience to engage to understand the designations and potential career paths that interests them. Will discuss out specific ambitions and goals and share what has worked for others and what could work for them & how to go about it.
