Testing has been a staple in developing quality products, yet after much advancement in software tools and infrastructure we often still carry on the ritual without consideration. Even as automated testing has allowed us to run tests faster, we are still using the same thinking and processes that were created during the manual testing era. Is there a more fundamental way of developing quality software? Can we solve this at scale?

In this session, Geoffrey and Michael will
- Identify why testing doesn't scale by taking a first-principles look at software quality
- Define an Engineering Productivity organization
- Show how to be a force-multiplier
- Offer steps to close the feedback loop between software development and validation
- Share how Google focuses on Engineering Productivity to deliver great value to users

Attendees should gain a new perspective on testing and how they can help deliver product quality with their teams.
