As we approach the culmination of 2023, it’s time to take an opportunity and reflect on the wealth of knowledge that has transpired during a1qa’s online roundtables.

Let’s cut to the chase!

Unveiling the importance of a1qa’s roundtables for IT leaders

Recognizing the paramount importance of fostering a dynamic exchange of QA insights and best practices, a1qa hosts a series of monthly online roundtables designed for top executives.

These exclusive sessions help bring together diverse IT experts to deliberate on topical QA-related issues, such as quality engineering trends, test automation, shift-left testing principles, among others.

Roundup of 2023 a1qa’s sessions

The first quarter roundtables overview

During this period, participants discussed three relevant topics — “A practical view on QA trends for 2023,” “How to get the most of test automation,” and “Dev+QA: constructive cooperation on the way to project success.”

Analyzing QA trends helps business executives to proactively shape their QA strategies, ensuring they are in sync with the industry’s evolving landscape. While automation assists them in accelerating IT product’s delivery, enhancing its quality, and reducing operational expenditure.

Also, the attendees talked about the best moment for QA to step into the SDLC stages and methods to make the communication between Dev and QA more efficient.

The second quarter roundtables overview

This period was marked by three vibrant conversations:

  1. “QA for complex software: tips for enhancing the quality” — IT peers shared the challenges they encounter when testing sophisticated systems and the ways to overcome them.
  2. “How to release a quality product within a limited budget” — C-level reps exchanged practical experience on mapping software quality expectations to a QA strategy and optimizing QA costs.
  3. “How to improve QA processes with shift-left testing principles” — participants discussed how shifting QA workflows left allows businesses to identify and fix defects early on while speeding up the release of top-quality applications.

The third quarter roundtables overview

“A closer look at the field of automated testing” took center stage during the 3rd quarter, emphasizing how to derive more values from test automation supported by AI and behavior-driven development.

The fourth quarter roundtables overview

During the last quarter of 2023, IT executives have already engaged in two insightful conversations — “How to organize testing and increase confidence when starting a new project” and “Rough deadlines: how to deliver better results in less time.”

At the October event, the attendees revealed the best QA approach to choose to be confident in a project’s success from the outset, optimize ROI, and reduce business risks. The November roundtable helped the participants voice their ideas and share real-life cases on meeting tight deadlines without compromising software quality.
