The Future of Quality Engineering with Liliya Frye

It wasn’t that long ago that companies scheduled downtime in order to release an updated version of the software running their website.  That’s rare today.  Most developers want continuous testing, integration, and deployment.  While that comes with many benefits, it also places greater demands on quality engineers who can no longer gate all updates into a single infrequency release.

Liliya Frye is the Director of QA Engineering at LeagueApps, a provider of Sports League & Team Management Software.  In this episode, we discuss Liliya’s experiences and modern practices for successful enterprise strategies.
