How to Move Your Shift Left Strategy Beyond Unit Tests

Many teams are now “shifting left,” and starting their QA process earlier in the development cycle. But in most cases shift left testing was confined to unit testing alone. While unit testing is a core component of a continuous testing strategy, teams that want to optimize for speed and quality should shift functional testing left, too.

In this webinar, learn how to:
1. Adopt a shift left strategy for functional testing
2. Optimize your testing strategy to get comprehensive results more frequently
3. Develop and ship features faster with minimal risk of bugs in production

  • How Much Do I Need to Test? Creating a Custom QA Strategy Nov 30 2017 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Russ Smith, CTO & Co-founder, Rainforest QA & Maddie Blumenthal, Director of Customer Success, Rainforest QA
    It’s easy to get into the mindset of testing-all-the-things. But aiming for quantity over quality will still leave you with coverage gaps, while also dragging down the speed of your QA cycle. In this webinar, we’ll talk about how to determine how much you should be testing, and how to design your QA strategy to fit the needs of your team and product.

    In this webinar, learn how to...
    1. Balance the number of tests against your assurance
    2. Build test suites strategically to maximize impact.
    3. Cover all your bases without compromising time & resources.
  • Integrating Quality into Software Development Recorded: Nov 16 2017 29 mins
    Edward Paulet
    Agile teams are beginning to test earlier than ever before in order to improve quality, shorten test cycles and reduce the possibility of releasing bugs. To successfully move fast without breaking things, teams must integrate quality assurance into their CI/CD processes.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    1. The fundamentals of automatable QA strategies
    2. How to successfully integrate quality into your CI process
    3. How to shorten the feedback loop between catching and fixing bugs
  • Crack the Automation Code and Create a Balanced Test Automation Strategy Recorded: Nov 15 2017 60 mins
    Derek Choy, CIO, Rainforest QA
    Test automation is often held up as the QA endgame. Teams mistakenly believe that if they can crack the automation code, all of their quality problems will be solved. But even when implemented perfectly, automated tests are brittle, flaky, and require significant upkeep.

    Automation is a critical QA tool, but it's not a magic bullet. To get the most out of automated testing and drive high-quality releases, teams must devise a QA strategy that balances management costs and testing speed.

    Join this web seminar to learn how to create a balanced test automation strategy that satisfies your team’s needs.

    You’ll also learn:

    - The true cost of test automation
    - How to adapt your test automation approach to fit faster iteration cycles
    - The best tools and processes to complement your automation strategy

  • Version Control: Managing Tests, Results and Source Code Recorded: Oct 12 2017 57 mins
    Jonathan Barber
    Writing software is hard, with projects easily reaching hundreds of thousands of lines of text. Source control allows developers to manage these giant corpuses, tracking who made what changes and when. In this webinar we’ll talk about how you can use the same source control systems to manage tests and their results, so you always have a record of what happened and when.

    In this webinar, learn about:
    1. The basics of source code management (SCM) tools
    2. How to use SCM to manage your test suite
    3. The advantages of storing tests alongside your source code
  • Rainforest 2.0 | Product Demo Recorded: Oct 11 2017 56 mins
    Otávio Dalarossa, Sr. Product Manager, Rainforest QA
    Experience Rainforest in a much cleaner and easier to use interface. We redesigned the entire platform from the ground up and will be giving a live demo on Rainforest 2.0. We will also introduce a new set of tools that make it easier to organize your test suite and view your test coverage. The session will conclude with a live Q&A.
  • The Building Blocks of Better QA: How to Take a Modular Approach to Testing Recorded: Sep 28 2017 35 mins
    Derek Choy, VP of Engineering, Rainforest QA
    Growing teams often hit a ceiling when scaling QA. Writing and maintaining the number of tests required to comprehensively test a complex product can easily become a major time and resource sink. By taking a modular approach to testing, QA and development teams can more effectively integrate testing into their development cycles and reduce management overhead significantly.

    In this webinar, discover how to...
    1. Adopt a modular approach to test case management
    2. Build test coverage that provides the greatest ROI
    3. Improve QA efficiency over time
  • Scaling Mobile QA without Scaling Your Team Recorded: Sep 19 2017 53 mins
    Derek Choy
    In order to stay at the front of the crowded mobile app market, companies have to provide a stellar user experience. Delivering exceptional performance and the latest features quickly is critical.

    But traditional QA practices are often slow, clunky, and poorly suited for the fast-moving mobile app teams. As a result, many teams with hybrid or mobile products haven’t found a QA process that fits their product and workflow requirements, much less one that accelerates development.

    Join this web seminar to discover techniques the QA team can use to scale up their mobile app testing strategy without adding unnecessary people to the team (or more phones to the drawer).

    You will learn:

    - Why traditional QA is a poor fit for mobile software development
    - How to evaluate and apply mobile testing tools and environments in a scalable way
    - How to create a strategy designed for better coverage, not more test cases
    - What role test automation should play in a highly effective mobile QA strategy
  • Create an Agile QA Strategy That Scales with Your Testing Team Recorded: May 30 2017 55 mins
    Quentin Thomas, Sr. QA Automation Engineer at Bleacher Report and Derek Choy, VP of Engineering at Rainforest QA
    Developing a QA strategy that scales to meet the changing needs of a growing organization is a major challenge. Traditional testing techniques can’t keep up with a fast-paced development cadence.

    For many of these growing software companies, determining whether a product or feature is ready to ship is difficult, and there is no one-size-fits-all strategy.

    Join this web seminar to discover how testing needs change as a company grows, and how your team can adapt its QA strategy to an agile approach that fits. You’ll learn the key factors expanding software companies must consider to optimize their QA strategy for both speed and quality.

    You will learn how to:
    - Find the balance between deployment speed and code quality
    - Determine the scope of testing that is appropriate for your organization
    - Develop a forward-thinking QA strategy that scales with your team
