It has been 11 years since Lessons Learned in Software Testing has been published, and about the same time since the concept of the four schools in software testing came up. Since then a lot of things happened with the advent of more and more agile methodologies, online courses like the black-box software testing series, and the recent advances in web technology.

But what does that tell us about the future in software testing? With the different advances in both technology and business, testers nowadays face many challenges. Some of them hint towards a difficult future in testing, some of them make testing a bright spot in the future to come. After eleven years, it's time to take a look back, and see where we struggle, and where we shine, and how to advance from here.

You will learn about the concept of the four schools in software testing, where the model helped to advance our craft, and where it has not, and possible next steps for the future. You will walk away from this presentation with new things to think about.
