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?

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

Conference Schedule

Agile Testing and Test Automation Summit, Chicago
X Topic Abstract

My presentation would focus on How to change Mindsets on automation, ways to tackle the issues facing your team when transforming and making automation something that is exciting instead of scary,

X Topic Abstract

Many development teams face a challenge with having a good test automation strategy. After years of implementing various strategies in my career, I have finally come up with a strategy that seems to be working. The winning solution to this strategy is to think as left as possible. What do you I mean by that? We need to be thinking, planning and executing tests as early in the SDLC process as possible. Having a framework in place that allows the team (dev and qa) to work in parallel and when the feature is complete, it’s Done Done!

Instead of running all these tests after a feature is complete, we can run them earlier and save time and money. Executing tests late in the cycle usually means a lot of repetitive tasks, misuse of skills, lack of collaboration, detecting defects later, increased effort in defect administration and costing a lot of time and money.

All these drawbacks can be alleviated when thinking about testing first. This allows allow the QA engineers to have capacity to think critically. There is no reason for being domain experts to be spending time only manually testing the application. With a joint effort we can make the testing pyramid a reality and all enjoy the benefits and ultimately delivery a quality product quickly.

I can then explain what this framework looks like in reality.

X Topic Abstract

The Performance Management Engineering resource keeps a head in the cloud at all times! It shouldn't matter if it's ORACLE Cloud, Amazon, and Azure Cloud (Microsoft) , MicroServices (DXC), Private Data Center/Private Cloud Services the top few one can look forward to working with as they are polite and provide open-source or already purchased products for the team to discover. This is a rapidly changing or hyper-dynamic environments as laptops and clunky PC are dumped for fastest computers on earth's surface in Cloud Computing Space. The ability to learn quickly what's s changing and getting the big-data needed to uphold the client's end of the business end or SLA is absolute must and needs to be performed for each vendor sometimes on a daily basis.

Software products that can be used to help organize these initiatives that spur Software Development Projects that employ consultants that allow a company to thrive, grow. The prediction what of how the system may react during an unusual traffic patterns and future growth patterns are business opportunity scenarios for the technology vendors or the companies they employ consultants dispatched to the client sites to support them.

A PME is like a CIA Agent, Communication Information Administration Agent. Typically involves communication protocols, or a deeply nessted table of the right people and their preferred method or secured transmission communication line.
