Overview of the event

We recently wrapped up 2018 as the year of digital quality. We talked about how digital transformation is going to bring even more drastic shifts in how we do software delivery. And how your organization needs to brace up to bring agile models to work in order to release higher quality software faster through automated testing.

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. Manual testing matrices are too big to approximate manually, take a long time, and are very complex to handle for applications like Uber, Snapchat, and Twitter that are scaling at the speed of light.

Manual testing might not be able to meet the demand of a plethora of web browsers, devices, operating systems, screen resolutions, and responsive designs. And to deliver quality at the speed of digital, there will be a need to bring in the right automated testing initiatives. But automation is vast and there are several nuances to it. Which nuances will be more pronounced in 2019?

Test Automation Day will help you get industry best practices in Test Automation and the latest tools and techniques to achieve it.

X Topic Abstract

Adopting test automation in one's test plan is more challenging than it may initially appear. Understanding these challenges can help QA teams recognize some common mistakes and set a better, more realistic plan for their next attempt at automation. Everyone jumps on to the test automation bandwagon and Ajay's teams were also not behind. After trying out different approaches and making multiple mistakes, Ajay is aware of what not to do. This talk would focus on the different failure stories and what was learned from each of them. Attend this talk to find out which mistakes your teams are currently making if any and how to avoid them. Do you need to rethink your entire approach and pick only a certain subset of the overall test ideas to automate? Maybe, it is time to think deeply and critically before one embarks on the journey of test automation and not as an afterthought.
