Rick Almeida walks attendees through a live presentation of SmartBear’s approach to quality, providing a glimpse into modern API and GUI testing best practices and how the company delivers software using its own tools. High quality software starts before you start writing code. Rick talks about how SmartBear collaborates on requirements across its extended development team, translates those requirements into code and finally code reviews and test plans. Also on the agenda is a quick look into root cause analysis via code profiling, because no one likes memory leaks or slow applications. Whether you’re a QA professional, a developer or a product owner, SmartBear’s tools maximize quality while minimizing effort.
