We’ve all heard this story before. “Testers need to be more technical”. The problem with that statement is that too many people read that as, “Testers need to code”.

In this session, long-time test specialist Alan Page will rant a bit about the subject, and then share several real examples of practical tools, techniques, and approaches that will help anyone become a more “technical” tester.
