Practical Tips to Speed Up Your UI Automated Tests

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Automated UI Tests are at the top of the automation pyramid and are considered slower and more prone to failure than automated tests at the other layers. Given that, how do you increase the speed of those tests to ensure that they are as efficient and provide as much value? In this talk, Julia will go through practical tips that you can implement in your UI test automation to increase its speed and get faster feedback. Key takeaways will include: how to increase the speed of UI tests, practical tips to make your test automation more efficient, and how to make your UI test less flaky and...

Using ML to Optimize Automated Web App Testing with Real-World Data

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

Though test automation has made testing faster, quality teams struggle to prioritize end-to-end testing to maximize test coverage. It’s challenging to define the E2E scenarios similarly to unit test coverage, particularly when teams only have a small set of test needs outlined. The issue becomes even more complex when new application features are added since there’s no way to determine where more E2E tests are necessary. This talk explains how a ML engineer built and tested a new feature and how prioritization of E2E testing in Agile environments can be automated. Lauren’s team developed...

Creating Test Stability To Achieve Continuous Delivery

Thursday, November 18, 2021 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

In our company, our automated tests were taking 30 minutes of execution time and the occurrence of flaky tests was just multiplying this time and reducing the confidence in the results. Our automated tests were maintained by various team members and some of them were not following leading practices - I needed to find out the root causes. I started my investigation and found the common issues were because of the environment, locators, coding practices, and a lack of knowledge sharing and code reviews. I improved our locators, coding practices, debugging, and simultaneously the developers...

Improving Agility by Using Customers’ Definitions of “Quality” and “Done”

Thursday, November 18, 2021 - 4:15pm to 5:15pm

“Quality”… velocity, productivity, and efficiency? Improved performance? Few or no bugs? Meets stakeholder requirements? “Done”… we did what we planned? Fits business objectives? Coded, tested, documented, and deployable? Remember our customers? The people paying our salaries? Their satisfaction is supposed to be our *highest* priority. But we fall in love with assumptions about users. We burn weeks coding, testing, merging, and releasing product guesses. We move to the next project, interrupted later when we learn that customers aren’t finding much value or quality in that last release....
