AITP-RTP Meeting – Modernizing Your Software Quality Assurance with Visual Testing


For more than a decade, there have been two main approaches to software quality assurance: manual testing and automated testing. Automation is great for running tests continuously at scale, but it struggles to catch visual bugs as easily as humans do. Now, thanks to AI, automation can close the gap by detecting visual changes over time. Let's learn how that's done and how we can add automated visual testing to our quality assurance strategy.

Our Speaker:

Andrew Knight

Andrew Knight, also known as “Pandy,” is the Automation Panda.  He’s a software testing and automation champion who loves to help people build better quality software.  In the past, he’s built large-scale test automation projects that run continuously and reliably.  Currently, Pandy is a Developer Advocate at Applitools, where he helps folks do the best visual testing they can.  He also leads Test Automation University, which offers a multitude of free courses on software testing from the world’s leading instructors.  On the side, Pandy is writing a book on software testing, and he also leads development for Boa Constrictor, the .NET Screenplay Pattern.  Check out his tech blog at AutomationPanda.com, and follow him on Twitter at @AutomationPanda.
