Day 1: Next Gen Test Engineering Leadership & Strategy (27th June, 2019)

X Topic Abstract

Subheadline: The question that you ask, determines the answer you get!

Main statement: Better questions means better answers!
Key learning 1: If you ask better questions you will get better answers! But to ask better answers you need to understand people's behaviors styles and needs.
Key learning 2: How to make a dysfunctional retro to an effective one by getting members more involved!
Key learning 3: Cultivating better interactions with team members, to create a better team spirit.
Key learning 4: Breaking down communication barriers between team members by understanding their behavior styles of DISC.
Key learning 5: How to communicate more effective with other people like: Developers, Scrum-masters, Testers, Product owners and all levels of management.

Dedicated audience: People interested in improving their team dynamics. So all Scrum team members and stake holders.

Abstract :
Picture this: You join an agile team in the middle of their sprint and you discover that although they say they’re “an Agile team” as a team but they certainly are not. The team doesn’t realize they’re struggling, after all, they are following the agile process; they are holding their daily standups and performing in time retrospectives and so on and so on. But in reality, though, they are basically following just rules but don't understand each other. They are not a team but just a group of people.
Then it doesn't matter what role you have in the team. You goanna have to start asking great questions. Questions that matter and are tailored to the other person. If you understand specific behaviour, like the styles in DISC you to get the team back on track in no time! You need to ask effective questions and don’t be a as’k’hole to others!
This talk brings you into the middle of human behaviour! And will give you some insight in an psychological tool (DISC) to identify and to improve behaviour.
In the talk you'll experience and you will recognize specific patterns that belong to specific behavioral traits. You will get tips and tricks in; How to persuade people to become more engaged team members.
Learn how some questions can help the one and others will get stuck with that same question. But if you come to this talk, you must be willing to move from your seat as this talk will be super active for speaker and participant!

X Topic Abstract

We are adopting Agile & DevOps to shorten the delivery cycles. In this context, continuous testing definitely has an edge over traditional testing approaches. Continuous testing brings the process of executing series of automated tests, as part of the software delivery pipeline, to obtain instant feedback on the quality of the solution to iron out business risks with a software release candidate.
Infosys Continuous Testing Platform (ICTP) follows a de-skilled approach by orchestrating the best in-class test automation tools across software testing life cycle and bringing a level of visibility to the stakeholders involved.

Benefits of the Platform:
• Provides early and continuous feedback
• Helps in identification of opportunities for defect prevention
• Reduces risk and technical debt
• Improves quality of delivery
• Enhances release cadence

X Topic Abstract

Enterprises are adopting the responsive web design approach to provide seamless experience and functionality to multiple devices and form factors. Automating such apps is challenging as application renders and behaves differently in various devices. Automation framework can easily get cluttered and unmanageable if not designed properly. Using advanced object identification techniques, abstractions, handling view ports, well designed framework, the challenges can be addressed.

X Topic Abstract

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the new holy grail of Office Productivity and Business profitability. However, very few understand the nuances of this approach and approach RPA tactically. RPA is not a paradigm shift, it’s just a new way to approach problem solving. RPA does not replace any systems, where traditional automation by Enterprise Applications ends, RPA steps it. While the most common benefit of RPA is in reducing headcounts by automation, a large part of the benefits come from increased compliance, better visibility of the business process and reducing human fatigue.
RPA is a rapid IT project, driven by non - IT staff and faces higher risks, because it demands prerequisites and some key best practices to be followed. Most of these best practices are new to many stakeholders in a organization and it will require time before an organization can gain competency and proficiency in these areas.

Common mistakes we see in RPA initiatives are:
1. It’s all about Robots- Belief that the Robots can do anything which much effort
2. I can do it all alone- Belief that any individual team or business line can invest in RPA and be successful and sustain it
3. If I can climb a hill, I can climb Everest- Belief that RPA can be scaled up without much issues
4. Let a thousand Flowers bloom- Different parts of the organization exploring their own RPA journey
5. People can wait- Not keeping people as a central theme in RPA conversations.

Critical Success Factors in RPA Journey.
1. Understand what is broken and needs fix. Study the business processes, identify what can be fixed. Break a problem into parts and follow up with a solution.
2. Business (source of problem) and IT (solution providers) must work together with joint responsibilities.
3. Tool Selection, Architecture design, ground level execution and Maintenance approach is critical for RPA to scale up, be sustainable and spawn low technical debt.
4. A business problem is always address for a group of people, customers, employees, partners etc. People should be at the center of the conversation and part of the story telling, shared experiences and shared outcomes.
5. Any enterprise is about positive outcomes, and so is RPA. There should be a clear business case and an ability to be flexible and do course correction if needed. Small wins should be celebrated to bring confidence in stakeholders and build public opinion towards RPA. Success should be measurable and related back to business performance metrics.

X Topic Abstract

Gone are the days where only QA used to run tests, today everyone including dev, management wants to hands on to check quality of the product. And with this no one wants to setup framework, environment and other parts of testing, that is where dockerising the whole testing process is a great fit . Try my work "docker pull pavankumarag/pytest-framework-internal:v1.0" where I have dockerised test framework, selenium and other stuffs . We will also walk through with demo and hands on. You are just one command away from testing your product – "docker run -tid –name testing pavankumarag/pytest-framework-internal:v1.0"

X Topic Abstract

Unlike server-side programming, mobile code cannot be retracted once shipped and can only be updated once a user opts in to an app upgrade. For Mobile Engineering, this presents unique challenges when it comes to releasing new features incrementally, fixing bugs, and mitigating outages at scale across mobile applications.

When submitting an app to the playstore and seeing a crash rising on your crash report : If only I could deactivate this feature so I could correct the crash without impacting the users. There is a solution for this, and it’s called feature toggle.

Topic Abstract

Who has not experienced it? A random group of people put together and from one moment to the other they must be a team. That is impossible! you say.
I do agree on that with you, but it is common practice in the world of Agile. And it is easy if no one cares and everyone is doing is own thing. You even get results at the end of each sprint.
And all is fine until you really want to work together.
All that is fine until you value the outcome of the group.
And it is fine until you want to create a team with these individuals.
At that exact moment you “care”. You care when you want to create value, you “care” when you go from "what ever" to "We care". Then the noncant attitude disappears. the time of acting behind and working without care is over.
But what to do about it?
Can you provoke, evoke or elicit ideas from your team members in change? In working as a team? Not only in a retrospective but during the hole sprint?
University research shows, that when people express their own ideas about what they should/could do differently in the future, the chance that they take steps into their change is exponentially higher then when they are just told. People simply prefer to be convinced by themselves rather than by others.
So don't let me convince you, but make up your own mind about your new role in creating your team! Come to the talk ‘Being Agile is easy, until you care!' Speaker profile

X Topic Abstract

Testing discipline has advanced with each industrial revolution from formal validation to independent lifecycle testing to supporting agile/automation/ continuous delivery. While testing has advanced well to support the organizations in their journey of digital transformation and embracing industry 4.0, the real industrialization of testing is yet to be witnessed leveraging full potential of digital technologies. This talk would discuss use of AI/ ML/Robotics to make Testing, Performance, Security, Compliance, Data management, Environment management and virtualization process more intelligent and relevant usecases for application of digital technologies to testing.

X Topic Abstract

Every cross functional Agile Team has a set of specialists who pitch in at various time to ensure a backlog is ready to be customer shippable sprint by sprint. These could be development specialists, test specialists, documentation specialists, operations specialists, business analysts and other specializations. As in mathematics the ratio of each of these is critical to the success of any sprint as their skills lend expertise and learning to others. In this session we explore if the number of devlopment specialist to test specialist within a cross functional agile team has a golden ratio? In this experience report what will be covered is learnings from scenarios where there is no test specialist in the team to a ratio where number of test specialists are more than development specialists. What will be covered are examples of sample ratios and the good and the bad of these ratios to an actual scenario. The implications of getting this ratio are discussed not just from product development but from a financial, people and type of company (startup, enterprise, service, product). In the end the session should help product owners, scrum masters and scrum team members get a insight into this crucial element of any agile project

X Topic Abstract

Will talk about some best practices with regards to strategy, framework, tools and processes to be successful in Automation for Agile methodology

X Topic Abstract

In contemporary test automation world, we are running 1000's tests every day. Even though most of our test cases are reliable and stable, debugging failures will consume lot of time, if not handled appropriately. This is an effort to reduce the analysis of failures and come up with probable root cause for each and every failure.
In this talk, we will explore all the approaches we have taken to drastically reduce the time to debug the failures & let you concentrate more on adding new tests. We will also talk about the approaches which could not yield results for us initially & why. We will look into building a failures' dashboard, driven by pattern based classification of logs(both server & automation tool) with reporting.

Manoj is a Principal QA Analyst at Oracle. He comes with close to 12 years of experience in Test Automation & QA processes and worked with Host Analytics & ADP prior to Oracle. He loves evaluating new automation tools (mostly open source), frameworks & utilities.

X Topic Abstract

Since the advent of the first commercial U.I automation tool, screenshot capture feature was enabled in automation execution reporting in order to facilitate quicker debugging and visual representation of errors encountered during execution. Now after close to two decades of U.I automation screenshots in automation testing are not just limited for debugging and/or reporting purposes.
In case of responsive web application automation as well as for customized enterprise packaged web applications automation the same web page when rendered in multiple viewports or when customized will have drastic visual differences/U.I/U.X and assertion using web element properties are cumbersome time consuming and in-comprehensive.
Modern automation frameworks are developed with screenshot based assertion and comparison to enable verification of expected behavior just based on screenshot of the entire web page or portions of the web page and not on individual web-elements. But is screenshot based automation self sufficient, is it reliable ? The other question is how do we mask ignorable differences from screenshots such as date/time etc which are bound to change during every run.
In this session you would get answers to all these questions along with a working demo of a screenshot based test automation framework with masking algorithm capable of masking ignorable differences. Here we are also going to cover how to leverage screenshot based automation to get maximum R.O.I , better test coverage and overall better product quality.

X Topic Abstract

With the advent of automation, the manual testers job significantly transformed. The testers started learning coding and that led to a scalable model by helping organizations improve coverage of automated tests. In this journey though the industry started facing a new set of issues viz cost of maintenance and cost of failures. In most cases it can be attributed it to product changes, intermittent behaviour of network and application, also termed as flakiness. With the advent of devops, the need for automation results to become more deterministic has significantly increased. The good news is that this can largely be handled. The solution starts with building resiliency into the design of the automation framework. There are basic techniques including abstraction of tests and externalisation of business rules. As you get mature in the journey of resiliency, you can induce automation intelligence by emulating a manual testers action. Eventually one could possibly incorporate machine learning and establish a model that allows one to build AI into the framework. The industry transformation that is needed to achieve this is revisiting the skill pyramid of automation teams/testers and a culture change where automation is treated as a product/software.

X Topic Abstract

Exploratory testing is the pinnacle of the test pyramid for a reason. It is perahps the most important form of testing before the release of a system under test. However, it is also perhaps the type of testing that provides the least ROI for a team. Why? Because it is hard to define, track and execute in a team. My talk will walk through ways to tame Exploratory Testing through visual tools and methods - bringing back its value to the test cycle.

X Topic Abstract

Often a testing team consists of a mix of subject matter experts, some manual testers and testers with some automation experience. Writing tests in the language of the business allows all stake holders to participate and derive value out of the automation process. If you are a nervous beginner or an expert at test automation, you need to know and understand the layers of test automation and how to separate the code from the test. Let us discuss the best approaches and practices for creation of a robust automation framework with correct separation as well integration of these layers. We will also see a demo on how to implement this with a case study using Sahi Pro.
