You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Or can you? With the rise of techniques like Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Testing in Production and the like, the demand for traditional blackbox testers is going the way of Old Yeller. More and more employers want testers who are able to work in and with code - and this can be uncomfortable for testers whose backgrounds don’t stem from CS or programming of any sorts. I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to be afraid.

You won't be expected to contribute to production code, suggest an O(1) solution on a code review or pair with developers during implementation. But it’s time you start peeking into that black box and being able to talk about what you see. This talk will cover various techniques proven to help you embrace code, expand your comfort zone and get you speaking a common language with developers.
