    Come and learn how software testers at Flipp work together to drive a culture of quality throughout a diverse software engineering organization. Depending on the situation, testers may apply very different sets of testing practices at Flipp. This is because our practices are driven by the contexts of the teams and projects in which we find ourselves. Despite these differences, however, we still strive to align ourselves to a set of core principles applied across all contexts. ------------------------------- Event Schedule 6:30 PM - 7:00 PM Registration & Dinner 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM Talk on 8:00 PM - 8:15 PM Group Q&A 8:15 PM - 8:30 PM Wrap Up & Networking ----------------------------------- Speaker: Gabriel Loo Gabriel is a Sr Software Engineer in Test (SEiT) at Flipp and has been in the Quality industry for over 5 years.
