Jonathan Pearson, Original Software, did a fantastic presentation at the Test Management Forum in London, on Wednesday called: “The Dark Side of Application Quality Management: Ten Black Holes to Avoid For Successful Application Delivery”.
The session was lively and Johnny impressed the crowd with his Obi Wan Kenobi Jedi Knight costume complete with light sabre for pointing at the projector screen and Star Wars sound effects. Johnny had no idea that his impressive presentation would leave its mark and he is now known by friends and colleagues as Johnny Wan Kenobi!

What data do you use for your test environments? Production, generated, subsetted, masked? So many different approaches, but which way works best for you?
Join us on our next upcomming webinar, “Agile Test Automation, Can It Be Done?”
George Wilson, Original Software, will be hosting the webinar this Wednesday, May 12th 2010, discussing the reality of test automation in an Agile environment.

Original Software will be holding a number of webinars from April to June. No more than an hour in length, these informative sessions will attempt to cut through some of the myths and hype that currently surround the software testing industry.
