Women in Tech Online Festival 2021: Software Testing

A Combination of team collaboration and the process to deliver higher quality products.

Hosted by: Zarka Sultana Software Test Consultant @ Sogeti

Attended by: Sonia Sontshatsha

The session led by Zarka from Sogeti was about software testing and the experiences of how team collaboration delivers higher quality systems. She explored different techniques of testing that are carried during the process of developing software.

It was a remarkably interesting session as I am involved in conducting system testing. Zarka explained the System Development life cycle, how the teams work, and how they ensure that they deliver high-quality systems.

She first highlighted that as a Test Consultant it is good to be involved in every phase. Secondly, she discussed how the internal stakeholders contribute to planning and developing software using Agile ways of working. Some of the key takeaways from the session were:

  • Teamwork improves efficiency.
  • Assuring testing occurs in Agile and DevOps practices
  • Making sure to discuss the changes made to a system to improve the quality of the product.

The learnings I got from this session will be helpful in my current role because we are also approaching problems in an Agile. This session helped to confirm this method to ensure that we produce the best products and solutions.
