"Commercial vs. Open Source Testing Tools" Opinion Battle with Ranorex Expert Christoph Preschern at Swiss Testing Night

Wed, 05/13/2015 - 11:05
Ranorex will be at Swiss Testing Night on May 20th, 2015 at the digitalSTROM AG I Building Technology Park in Zurich (Switzerland).

Swiss Testing Night
is a German-speaking evening event that offers both an opinion battle and networking opportunities. This year's opinion battle will focus on the comparison between commercial and open source testing tools.

Test tools play an important role in the efficient management of testing activities. Should we rely on open source or commercial software solutions? Open source tools are license-free and allow for modification. If the support is also being provided by an active community, open source tools seem to present only advantages, or not? At Swiss Testing Night, representatives of the companies behind renowned commercial testing tools were invited to present their point of view. Christoph Preschern, Head of Sales/CCO and Test Automation Expert, will take part in the " Commercial vs. Open Source Testing Tools " opinion battle. After that, a moderated discussion will take place in which participants can ask questions.   Attend the opinion battle with Christoph Preschern and use the opportunity to discuss test automation issues with him.

Ranorex invites you to attend the keynote speech of Christoph Preschern, Head of Sales/CCO and Test Automation Expert, entitled "People Behind the Testing Tools and Frameworks" which is to take place on April 17th.

Developing a tool that helps testers with automation requires dealing with two major challenges. First, you need to have an excellent understanding of the application technologies used for web, desktop and mobile environments. Secondly  but no less important  is understanding the testers using the tool. Who are the people behind the test automation projects? What expertise, knowledge and skills do they possess? Addressing these questions along with a look at today's test automation challenges for testers will be the topics of this keynote.
Don't miss this session!

The Testing: Academic and Industrial Conference – Practice and Research Techniques is a unique event that strives to combine all the aspects of a software testing conference, workshop and social meetup. TAIC PART brings together industry players and academics in an environment that promotes meaningful collaboration toward meeting the challenges of software testing. TAIC PART is sponsored by representatives from both industry and academia.
