For episode 44, we sit down with Lanette Creamer, a proponent of context-driven and agile QA practices to discuss what “quality” means in a world moving toward DevOps practices. Lanette started in QA back when solving “the blank screen” involved “typing in win.exe” and has been testing everything from publishing to medical records software. We figure out what it’s like to be a QA engineer in this changing environment and how we can all help produce better quality in the software we work on. Join us as Lanette guides the panel through:
