The International Society of Automation (ISA) has announced that software quality engineer Gregory Pope from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will deliver a keynote address during its Safety and Security Division Symposium, which runs April 25-27 in Anaheim, Calif.
Pope, who has more than 40 years of experience developing software in the commercial and government sectors, will address attendees on the topic of “Is it a Bug or a Feature?” His presentation will cover who should do software testing, when it should be done, some of the more useful test types and what makes a test “good.”
In addition, Pope will explore the value of pretest activities, such as requirement analysis; inspections and static analysis; the role of dynamic code analysis and test automation, including where to find requirements for testing, effective test design techniques and metrics for measuring the quality of tests.
The ISA Safety and Security Division Symposium offers current safety and security technologies and procedures associated with identifying and mitigating safety hazards in industrial environments. Two tracks will be offered, one focused on safety topics and one centered on security.
