          When You Say Context, Does That Include Me?

          Ash Coleman, Head of Diversity & Inclusion, Credit Karma
          The notion of Context Driven Testing has spawned conversations about how much context is valuable… but software testers tend to focus mostly on context in testing. We very rarely extend our thinking about context beyond our test strategy. Have we ever sat back and thought, how much of this context is about me? Come explore the context of the individual as it pertains to the overall quality of the product.

                Hunting Sasquatch: Finding Intermittent Issues Using Periodic Automation

                  Livestream

                  Hunting Sasquatch: Finding Intermittent Issues Using Periodic Automation

                  Paul Grizzaffi, Principal Automation Architect at Magenic
                  In American folklore, Sasquatch is an elusive, ape-like creature infrequently seen at the boundaries of wilderness and civilization. In the software realm, we have our own version of Sasquatch: that irritating, difficult-to-find intermittent issue occurring in a complex system. In this session, Paul will explain how applying the concept of periodic automation can increase your chances of hunting down these elusive targets, using real-world examples from his own experience. You’ll learn the basics of applying periodic automation to find issues outside of typical event boundaries, how the approach relates to High-Volume Automated Testing (HiVAT) and how it can help you avoid desensitization to failures.

                            At some point we all commit to automating some of the riskiest use cases because, let’s be honest, something bad happened in production. But how do you proceed? Do you standardize your projects and teams on a single framework or framework style such as BDD? Do you let each team do what they think is best? How will you maintain this new behemoth that you’re about to create? Learn how to answer these and other critical “getting started” questions—as well as track the KPIs vital for demonstrating the ROI on your automation investment.

                            Tomorrow’s Tester: The Evolution of Work

                              Livestream

                              Tomorrow’s Tester: The Evolution of Work

                              Jeff Wilkinson, Managing Director, Accenture
                              The testing industry is flooded with doomsday predictions: “The TCoE is dead! Testers will not be needed in the future! Robots will replace testers!” While there is no question that today’s technologies have driven the evolution of the job, it is increasingly evident that successfully leveraging them will only extend the need for skilled testers. We are rapidly infusing bots, artificial intelligence and machine learning into quality processes – but doing so meaningfully requires a sound quality strategy and skilled testers at the helm. Join us to hear about Accenture’s “Touchless Testing” approach, which employs these concepts. We’ll explore what all this means for the future of testing and what today’s testers must do in order to stay relevant.
