DevOps and Agile Testing Summit

Briefly Know About This Event

Automation, Agile processes, micro services, continuous delivery, container and cloud technologies are essential to the current high performance IT transformation.

New business models presented by DevSecOps and NoOps are further increasing the opportunities for enterprise to deliver quality software.

The DevOps Hack Summit will feature insightful talks and solution based discussions that will help to understand advances in DevOps, associated benefits, scrutinise implementation challenges and their solutions.

A key trend that will sweep over to bring economies of scale, speed and intelligence will be automated testing followed by AI. We've seen a massive movement from manual to automation in the last couple of years, as manual could not handle this scale of change.

Agile Testing Summit will help you get industry best practices in Digital QA and Testing and the latest tools and techniques to achieve it.

X Topic Abstract

Test automation is not a new testing concept; however, it is still underutilized, with less than 20% of testing being automated. Test automation is among the top testing trends globally. The reason why test automation is still a global trend and will remain so in the next few years to come is because of the constantly changing market dynamics. As a result of these changing technologies, enterprises need to be on their toes to not only adopt the latest digital technologies but also have the provision for testing these technologies swiftly. This is where new-age technologies such as AI/ML and innovation can help. Testing in today’s world is about efficiency in terms of reliability and time. Artificial intelligence assists test automation by making testing more efficient. AI/ML can help in quickly identifying the defects by going through the test files at a greater speed than a human can do. Moreover, AI/ML can be designed to create algorithms that can help in generating better test cases, scripts, and data. Additionally, predictive models can be developed using AI/ML that can provide insights on what, where, and when to test. AI, therefore, has tremendous potential to drive the next level test automation that would be much more efficient than its predecessors.

X Topic Abstract

There are a ton of best practices in the operations world. But what really makes sense for your team? The reality is that one size doesn't fit all. Lean is a framework for designing and optimising processes. Let's apply it to a typical incident management process and see what comes of it.
Lean Thinking is an analysis framework that has revolutionised various domains like manufacturing and software development. It's principles are:
Optimize the whole
Eliminate waste
Create knowledge
Build quality in
Deliver fast by managing flow
Defer commitment
Respect people
We will look at each of these principles and apply them to the incident management lifecycle. At the end of this we will see why certain best practises make sense, practices that aren't common but should be and common practises which are probably not very helpful

X Topic Abstract

Many DevOps engineers have a burning desire to innovate and excel at automating and learning newer platforms. But they often feel their skills are underutilized or not rewarded fairly. So they withdraw their passion from work, and soon feel stuck in their jobs. Studies show that it costs millions of dollars in lost revenue due to employee inefficiency. This speech enables engineers debug the root cause of their mindset and provides actionable steps to reinvigorate their passion for DevOps. This new found enthusiasm and empowerment among engineers result in a high performing engineering teams and eventually a cutting edge tech company.

X Topic Abstract

Testing is context-dependent, and in turn, so is test automation! Testing teams are faced with a number of questions, decisions and challenges throughout their test automation journey. But there is no single solution for their varied problems! In this talk we will outline a number of strategies that agile teams can follow– be it their selection of what to automate and how much, what approaches to follow, whom to involve, and when to schedule these tasks so that the releases are debt free and of best quality. Knowing your options, you can then decide on what strategy fits the best in your context and follow it in your test automation efforts.

Naturally gifted skills | Product Enthusiast | Entrepreneur | Businessman

I was selling 3G dongles at different locations in Bangalore in 2009. I was selling them so effectively, someone noticed my skills, interviewed me for a software testing position, offered an internship and then later became a full time tester. I tested some of India's top apps and also at customer locations outside India. I was professionally on par.

I needed a better challenge. I saved some money, quit the job, and tried doing my own app. What a journey. I failed with it, burnt my money but had gained sufficient experience in identifying the gap between developers - testing - businesses.
