We have entered an era of infinite complexity – it is impossible to understand even small subsections of software we are relying on, let alone comprehend the complete solutions. What do all of the prevalent trends in software development (rapid, agile, cloud based) mean for quality?
At the same time, customer expectations have aligned with what is available, and they seem to be more interested in the availability of new features and price than quality.
This talk addresses the impact of these changes on the testing professionals and tries to assess where the future will take us. It summarizes two years of research on this topic, discussions with hundreds of software testing professionals, and provides suggestions on possible solutions.
