Change request: new syllabus and dictionary for ISTQB Foundation Level
In June 2018 ISTQB announced the introduction of a new Basic Level syllabus. During the presentation we will tell you exactly what the changes in the syllabus and glossary are. As well as how the calendar of changes will look like and what will be the impact on exams (including in Poland). In particular, we will raise the following issues:
Why was a new version of the Syllabus created?
What does the new ISTQB Foundation Level syllabus contain?
How will the glossary of ISTQB terms change?
What is the schedule for the introduction of a new syllabus?
How will the new syllabus affect exams and certification?
And most importantly: will the test harness remain in the dictionary?
