vodQA Shots - 2020

Saturday, 12th December 2020


vodQA - Value Oriented Discussions for Quality Analysts, is a forum that sports the motto - 'come learn something new'. The forum offers a unique platform for the software testing industry to strengthen the QA community through knowledge sharing.

So far, we have successfully hosted more than 20+ editions of vodQA across all ThoughtWorks India offices. vodQA aims at taking you to another level altogether, where you get a wider perspective of testing. Let us meet more evangelists, to talk and learn about the vast spectrum of testing realms.

Full Stack QA on Microservices - 101

Microservices break traditionally structured applications into manageable pieces. They are often decoupled, allowing for updates with little to no downtime. Moving to distributed Microservices ecosystem brings its own challenges. Among them is the loss of visibility into the system, and the complex interactions occurring between services.

The workshop aims to break the myth of writing unit test is a developers job and facilitate QAs to be involved early in the development life cycle.
