Are We Beyond the Testing Pyramid?

Hello,

Have you ever wondered about what the future is for test cases? They pop up regularly in the community and have a bit of a marmite feel to them at times. During one of the panel Discussions at TestBash Home, our panellists will discuss what their future is and what value they can provide. They'll be basing this on diverse experiences and situations to give you a rounded view of what the future holds. Have you booked your spot yet?

-  Heather, CommunityBoss
