Continuous Testing Is Not Test Automation

Add to calendar
Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

The DevOps movement is front and center across enterprises. Companies with mature systems are breaking down siloed IT departments and federating them into product development teams and departments. Testing and its practices are at the heart of these changes, so companies are turning to continuous testing with the hopes that they can automate their way through the testing bottleneck by focusing on automating regression tests. But this strategy is failing. Adam Auerbach will explain why he thinks that is, what true continuous testing looks like, and how continuous testing should be...

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Companies like Apple, Tesla, Google, Amazon, and Facebook have been investing in AI to solve different technological problems in the areas of health care, autonomous cars, search engines, predictive modeling, and much more. Applying AI is real, it’s coming fast, and it’s going to affect every business, no matter how big or small. How are testers going to adapt to this change and embrace AI? Join Raj Subramanian to discover how AI is going to influence the way we do test design and automation. He'll cover the basics of AI, the key ways software testing can benefit from AI, and the...

AI Is Key to Agile Testing Speed

Add to calendar
Wednesday, November 7, 2018 - 2:45pm to 3:45pm

Speed is king in agile. In a world where most of the agile process is automated, testing is the slowest and most expensive part of getting your app or website deployed to the world. Very few app teams have a decent amount of test automation, and even they still have days of manual testing during each agile cycle before they release new versions of their app. Testing is difficult, especially at the UI level, which is why it is still relegated to humans. But all that is changing with the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Join Jason Arbon as he explains how agile...

A Personal History of Collaboration: Soloing, Pairing, Mobbing, Cube Farms, and Pipe Fires

Add to calendar
Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

Pair programming is the practice you love to hate! It's been nearly twenty years since Extreme Programming promoted pair programming as a collaborative practice, and it's still here. And if you thought that was bad, now there's mobbing, where the entire team works together on one thing at a time. Does that seem nuts? Yet we often hear teams say, "We go faster because we are mobbing." In this anecdote-heavy session, you'll hear Jeff Langr's history of working through various models for collaboration (or not) across the past several decades, including pairing, solo programming, and mobbing....

Commonalities of Agile and DevOps Transformations for Large Organizations

Add to calendar
Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

As the adoption of agile and DevOps have been steadily growing over the years, many organizations have been taking a proactive approach to prepare for the changes needed for success. This means giving people the skills and resources they need to be successful, working with customers and users for improved collaboration and transparency, and providing teams with the tools and infrastructure to enable continuous flow of value. Are there commonalities across organizations that others can learn from to support their journeys? Join Robin Yeman and Suzette Johnson as they provide an interactive...

Service Virtualization: How to Test More by Testing Less

Add to calendar
Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Agile teams tend to struggle in getting development and testing in sync. Many teams run minified waterfalls, where testers get working code a few days before the end of the sprint—and tools usually can't help. But service virtualization is one of those rare tools that can make a huge impact and accelerate software delivery by limiting the dependencies needed for testing. Join Paul Merrill to get an introductory demonstration of service virtualization with a freely available, open source tool. Learn the five modes of service virtualization: capture, simulate, spy, synthesize, and modify....
