Business, IT and Testing industry has matured and moved beyond basics. Hence we strongly discourage practitioner to pick up basic topics. Industry wants more advanced and practical topics over theory. Couple of topics which industry wants to hear on are challenges in testing disruptive technologies, mobile testing strategies, mobile testing tools, testing as a cloud service, testing cloud services and frameworks, challenges in testing big data applications, demo of tools available to testing SMAC and IoT, model driven testing, latest trends in testing, emerging disruptive testing techniques etc.
