Workshop: The Dominoes of Automation

Let’s knock down some dominoes! 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 […]

Roundtable: Exploring the KEYS of Agile Testing

Let’s face it. Testing in agile teams is different. Instead of testers driving all of the work or decisions, it becomes a team activity. But this opens another set of challenges. How to fit into, influence, and operate within an agile team context? This roundtable is focused towards exploring all aspects of quality and testing […]

Improving Your Testing Methodology Using Docker

Wonder how you can make your testing more efficient? Join Glenn Buckholz as he explores Docker, a technology that allows rapid development and deployment via containers. First, he explains exactly what composes a container, and discusses the differences between a container and an image. Once this is clear, Glenn demonstrates how Docker solves the problem […]

More QQ, Less Pew-Pew: Performance Testing Without Using Load Tools

To many people, Performance Testing is synonymous with Load Testing. In fact, Load Testing is just a subset of Performance Testing, as there are other techniques for assessing performance that don’t involve load simulation. There are several tools that any tester can use to measure, record, assess, and report software performance. Load Testing is expensive, […]

Tester or a Data Scientist?

Data Scientist has been named as the sexiest job of the 21st century. “Data scientists make discoveries while swimming in data. It’s their preferred method of navigating the world around them. They are able to bring structure to large quantities of formless data and make analysis possible. They identify rich data sources, join them with […]

Workshop: Leading Agile Testers – Successfully Making the Shift

There’s a terrible error being made today across many agile organizations. They’re assuming there is no place for test management and leadership in agile, self-directed team contexts. We beg to differ with this view and believe there is a strong need for testing leadership in agile organizations, just not the way we’ve always approached it. […]

Leveraging Machine Learning Algorithms for Mobile Testing

With the rapid advance of mobile computing technology, there is a significant demand for mobile application testing on real devices. In mobile app testing, Mobile Device Management is playing a vital role and understanding the challenges in Mobile Device Management is as important as solving them. In order to avoid Device specific problems, test automation […]

Risk Based Security Testing

In any software development project, there are certain stages that should be followed – and typically, in a certain order. These tasks include generating requirements and use cases, creating an architecture and design based on those requirements, writing test plans, writing code, performing testing, deployment, and getting feedback from the field. In many organizations, software […]

Testers Can Write Good Code Too

When you define yourself as an automation engineer, you are admitting to writing code. That comes with great responsibility: you should not just write code, you should write GOOD code. You have handy tools and learning resources around to help you write tests that are easy to read, without much need for maintenance, clear and […]
