Briefly Know About This Event

Our hearts and thoughts remain with those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak worldwide. In the past months,1point21GWS has been organizing conferences on Virtual platform.

We recently wrapped up 2021 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 2022?

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.

X Topic Abstract

Traditionally, testing and quality assurance activities were left to the end of the software lifecycle, often to be squeezed for time. In the mid-1990s agile teams started to perform such activities earlier in the lifecycle, something called “shifting left.” This significantly improved the quality outcomes of the solutions being produced by the teams. Disciplined Agile (DA) teams take this strategy one step further, realizing that planning and modeling activities are similarly “shifted right” in the life cycle. At the same time, with the advent of DevOps, many teams are evolving away from Scrum’s sprints towards a leaner, more streamlined approach. The implication is that DA teams choose to adopt a more continuous way of working (WoW). This presentation walks through why and how this is done.

X Topic Abstract

How to successfully conduct test automation process improvement (TAPI) for continuous development, consisting of iterative software development, continuous testing, and delivery, is the challenge faced by many software organizations. In this paper, we present an experience report on TAPI in one DevOps team in F-Secure (a Finnish software company). The team builds Windows application software and exists in F-Secure’s TAPI culture. The team self-reports high satisfaction and maturity in test automation for continuous development. To study their TAPI, we reviewed a collection of experience notes, team reflection reports and telemetry result reports. Then several meetings were held to discuss the details. We found that based on the understanding of the team, test automation maturity for continuous development is defined as a set of indicators, e.g., the increasing speed to release, improving the productivity of the team, high test efficiency. Second, the team indicated that a set of critical success factors have a major impact on successfully carrying out its TAPI, e.g., incremental approach, the whole team effort, test tool choice and architecture, telemetry. Third, we compare the TAPI practices in the observed team with the practices described in prior literature. The team believes that the existing test automation maturity approaches should include the identified practices like the whole team effort to build a more comprehensive test automation improvement model for the software Industry

-A roadmap to navigating common challenges in Salesforce test automation, including functionality, how to create configurable lowcode/highcodes solutions, and a deeper understanding of Dynamic Elements.
-Discovering a new approach to building Salesforce scalable test automation architecture for all.

If you have ever wanted to understand how to create and implement a Salesforce test automation strategy, you will not want to miss this leadership session.

X Topic Abstract

“These tests should never have been written. They provide no or little value.” -ME
Testing code has been described as an "art form." It is, but it should not be. There are many good patterns that should be followed when writing tests. There is even a lifecycle of tests that should be paid some attention. There are also many BAD patterns that developers should be aware of so that they can be avoided (or cleaned up).
This session will provide a series of examples of bad front-end tests and how to write them correctly.
* Tests Should Not Be "Well-Factored"
* Keep The Reader In The Test
* Violate The DRY Principle
* Testing Too Much
* Duplication Of Code Logic
* Bad Test Double
* Testing The Mock
* False Positives
* Testing Private Functionality Directly
* Excessive Setup

More and more companies are using Progressive Delivery to get all types of changes – new features, configuration changes, bug fixes, and experiments – into production in a safer, faster, and most importantly, a sustainable way.
Software companies that shift to Progressive Delivery benefit from low risk releases, faster time to market, higher quality, and in general happier teams. Sounds great right? But what happens when your system isn’t implemented correctly, or worse, tested properly?
This talk takes you on a journey of why teams use Progressive Delivery, and the path from basic to advanced feature flag usage.
Make sure you build the right product, and build the product right!
How to decide what testing strategies should be implemented (how to setup your unit test, end to end automation, etc)
What tactics are most effective for keeping your implementation healthy and effective (feature flag governance!).
