About the talk
Many companies struggle with their QA processes and think of them as bottlenecks to their releases. Join me on my journey transforming QA and improving reputation and reliability.
Transforming QA has required me to take deep dives into some of the technical challenges organizations face when they try to integrate an automation-focused QA team. I will be talking about 3 stages of QA adoption: Strategies on smart learnings from failure, pre-planning for success, and key action points for successful implementations (POC, tools, team structure).
I will also review how I created transparent and effective processes in QA that helped in gaining trust from other teams such as product, engineering including senior management team on QA.

These are my learnings that what was needed when you go to a new company and you start a brand new team order. 00:03 The strategies you should follow I will also go through some case study that in the last 9 months 00:11 what I have done in good RX and then the later part will be about. 00:17 Our latest trend called visual regression that we are using at scale our QA Department. 00:23
The little bit introvert myself that's my husband in the background and my 3 years old daughter was born in Calcutta and from 2010. 00:30 I'm in the USA and I love traveling. 00:38 I traveled 5 continents already and looking for the other two. 00:40 I love to workout more work. 00:44 Workout Holick If you are in my team. 00:46 You have to learn to listen to my workout stories. 00:49 Every day almost an I love to meet new people so, please. 00:52 Talk to me at the end of the session. 00:56
Give me feedback on how I did. 00:59 This was my strategy for my team and so I have a dedicated SD team like it's a service team which helps all our release ways. 01:03 and I have off your team in back in India, 01:13 who does the testing when we are sleeping here so I almost have a 24 bar 7 cycle so they really few is help with new features. 01:16 The Essenes rights are called tools and help the release Ways and are optional testers help the release. 01:27
