QA Expert Keith Klain to Speak at Quality Jam London 2018
We are thrilled to share the first details about our outstanding speaker lineup for Quality Jam London 2018! Back by popular demand, veteran Quality Jam speaker Keith Klain will join us in London Oct. 18 — this time, for a keynote presentation. At the one-day event for Europe-based testers and QA leaders, Klain will take the stage to discuss “Software Quality Anti-Patterns in Testing.”
Klain, who is head of software quality at Tekmark Global Solutions, moderated a panel at Quality Jam Atlanta in April titled “Software Testing in the Real World.” Klain joined testing experts Ashley Hunsberger, Paul Merrill and Clint Sprauve for a refreshingly honest conversation about the value of testing, which is often underestimated, and the struggles and triumphs that testers often face in a role that isn’t always the most visible.
In his London keynote, Klain will revisit some of those themes from the perspective of the anti-pattern. According to Klain, “From metrics-based micromanagement to the law of triviality, software testing has been subjected to a standard set of responses to testing’s ambiguous, uncharted journey into a sea of bias and experimentation. There are many anti-patterns associated with managing software testing and their effect on quality, from how you organize and fund testing, to the tools you use to automated and manage the process.”
In the keynote, he’ll explore the unintended consequences, dysfunction, and risks these common problems introduce to your organization, along with some practical solutions for addressing them, drawn from Klain’s 20+ years helping companies build efficient, effective QA practices. You won’t want to miss it.
