We were at the Software Testing Conference 2008 – it was well organized and a really well attended conference. Given that I know of a couple of conferences that had to cancel in the recent past due to insufficient registrations/sponsors/interest – the audience that STC 2008 drew was very impressive to say the least.
This morning I heard Mr. Gangadharaiah, Sr. VP and Global Head of Testing Services at Wipro Technologies speak about “Next Wave of Testing: Testing as Managed Services and the Business Value Delivered”. It was a well delivered talk and one of the statements that he mentioned caught my attention particularly: People will test more and develop less during these slow economic conditions. What do you think? Will IT managers in your organizations spend more time in software testing and maintenance than taking up new development projects? Vote here:
