Infuriatingly Fun Performance Puzzlers

Bonus Evening Workshop: Infuriatingly Fun Performance Puzzlers

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 5:00pm-8:30pm

Have you ever been stumped by a performance issue? And everyone is looking at you to be the genius who knows everything about performance? It’s a situation that we may find ourselves in frequently, but never get a chance to practice fully before we end up in the hot seat.

This workshop will help you to practice the insightful questioning, small-group collaboration and performance depth of knowledge required to handle performance escalations and critical situations.

The Dominoes of Automation

Bonus Evening Workshop: The Dominoes of Automation

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 5:00pm-8:30pm

In this workshop you’ll be challenged to set up dominoes in a way that solves puzzles. In doing so, you’ll learn the basic principles of good test automation: how verification steps affect what we learn from tests; how dependencies affect our testing outcomes; how interactions with third-party systems work with and against our goals; and how time limits us in what we can learn about our systems under test.

Wherever you are in your test automation journey there is more to learn. Join us to have fun and gain insights into automated test design and execution! [READ MORE]
