uTest and James Whittaker to Host Free Webinar for Software Testing Managers

Boston, MA, March 27, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Microsoft Software Architect to present: “5 Insights to Revolutionize Your QA”
uTest, the software testing marketplace, announced today that Dr. James Whittaker will present a free webinar on Tuesday, March 31 (1pm-2pm ET), titled: “5 Insights to Revolutionize Your QA Process.”

A well-known expert and author in the field of software testing, Whittaker will examine evolving trends in the industry and discuss their impact on QA leaders. Topics include: the difference between experience code and infrastructure code; the downside of feature testing; why test cases can be a poor measure of success; why testers should play a greater role in development, and others.

“In times like these people often lose sight of the big picture and concentrate solely on the day-to-day details of finding and resolving bugs,” said Whittaker. “Always being one to buck such trends, I’ve come up for air and I am offering five insights that may change the way you test and, I hope, make your QA team more effective.”

This will be the second time James has presented to the uTest community. In November 2008, he presented “The Future of Software Testing” to an audience of more than 500 QA managers, software testers and developers from around the world.

“James literally wrote the book on software testing, so his insights and expertise should provide a great benefit for anyone involved in the QA process,” said Matt Johnston, uTest’s VP of Marketing and Community. “His deep belief in the concept that crowdsourced testing is an excellent compliment to in-house QA efforts is yet another validation of the uTest model.”
