    X Topic Abstract

    One of the main criteria to building and implementing successful DevOps pipelines is Continuous Testing based on Test Automation. One of the most overlooked and under planned aspects of developing test automation is designing and architecting the "ecosystem" or Test Automation Framework required to build consistent, scalable test automation that generate repeatable results. In my presentation, I discuss the key ingredients of TAFs including my experience transforming my organization from waterfall to agile to DevOps

    X Topic Abstract

    Many years ago, Stephen Covey made the statement “Nothing Fails Like Success”. He spoke on how that the things we do to be successful today may not be enough for success tomorrow. This powerful statement can be directly applied to how that the changing landscape of IT is affecting the roles of our project teams. Processes, tools, and approaches that were once successful years ago may not be enough today, tomorrow, and beyond.

    This philosophy is highly applicable with the role of IT teams today. As teams move from waterfall to Agile & DevOps, there is a call for many changes in strategies that were once successful. The basic project dynamics are evolving into a whole new format. The concept of “shift left” moves from “good to have” to “required” in order for DEV and QA teams to engage in the project dynamics earlier. Years ago, before companies were moving to Agile & DevOps, teams would not have imagined that skills in design, arts, and user interfaces would become so important. However, they are critical roles required in aligning the project teams to ensure success.

    Therefore, teams must evolve in multiple ways. First, they must modify basic behavior patterns: increasing the courage of the team, engagement with the project team, being more business driven, and contributing more to the overall project life cycle. Secondly, communication becomes one of the most critical keys to success. And finally, teams must be willing to adapt and function in a changing environment that will continue to evolve as we learn new skills and grow with Agile & DevOps.

    Key Takeaways:
    • Evaluate the many changes that teams face as organizations evolve their SDLC process
    • Evaluate how that some things remain the same and how to identify those core elements
    • A checklist of core skills and competencies needed in Agile & DevOps environments
    • Steps each team must take today to support their organizational growth

    https://stareast.techwell.com/program/concurrent-sessions/reducing-scope-load-test-analysis-stareast-virtual-2020

    Load testing execution produces a huge amount of data. Investigation and analysis are time-consuming, and numbers tend to hide important information about issues and trends. using machine learning is a good way to solve data issues by giving meaningful insights about what happened during test execution. Julio Cesar de Lima Costa will show you how to use K-means clustering, a machine learning algorithm, to reduce almost 300,000 records to fewer than 1,000 and still get good insights into load testing results. He will explain K-means clustering, detail what use cases and applications this method can be used in, and give the steps to help you reproduce a K-means clustering experiment in your own projects. You'll learn how to use this machine learning algorithm to reduce the scope of your load testing and getting meaningful analysis from your data faster.

    X Topic Abstract

    True realisation of RoI for an automation program remains in how well it grows from tiny steps hopping around the business landscape to conquering it and the scaling experience can vary substantially depending on the strategy adopted. We would touch upon some factors which will help an organisation relish its first taste of RPA to wanting more.

    X Topic Abstract

    Use Behavior-Driven & Test-Driven approaches in testing for both Developers and Testers. Testers and Developers can use approved business requirements as a foundation for creating tests very early on in the project life cycle, and then create tests with a test-driven mindset so the applications that are based on the business requirements (BDD) will pass the already-created tests (TDD). Tests will have to be edited to increase coverage as the development proceeds, but in this way Quality Assurance can show the Client that what they have ordered is being developed and works in terms of both functionality and design.

    Starting out as a Manual Tester in 2003, Anastasios has worked in practically every area of Quality Assurance and Testing, from Test Management to Test Automation. His concentration now is on the implementation of Continuous Testing in DevOps environments.

    X Topic Abstract

    The presentation covers why chasing outcomes is much better than delivering outputs and uses analogy, storytelling and real-life examples to illustrate all concepts covered.

    • Explains Kohavi’s Law – namely, that only one change in three will yield a positive result.
    • Uses the story of Harry Potter to highlight how useless our expert opinion and intuition are when predicting value.
    • Discusses the low priority change that sat on the backlog for over six months but ended up making Microsoft Bing $100 million a year in additional revenue.
    • Examines various practical examples showing how most organisations usually focus on volume (output) rather than value (outcome) and the pitfalls thereof.
    • Provides a practical example of how to use and evolve feature hypotheses - and ‘pivot’ / adjust your priorities based on the outcomes achieved.
    • Tackles the often-misunderstood concept of “What is an MVP?”
    • Highlights that it’s not the features you build but how many experiments you run that will determine the success of your business.

    X Topic Abstract

    This session will explore how much time and energy we currently waste when writing software, simply to answer two simple questions:

    "Does my code work?"

    "Did I just break something?"

    As we explore these pain-points, Test-Driven Development will emerge as a surprisingly efficient workflow putting us in a position to ship code sooner, more often, on a sustained basis.

    Most of us are "surprised" by this, as it just seems very counter-intuitive to write a test before even having written any code. Yet, as we explore this workflow, we start uncovering the efficiencies that we gain, and things become fascinating.

    As a result, we will show what it "feels" like to write software that responds to change, as a true sensation of agility emerges, driven not by Scrum, but instead, driven by better code.

    X Topic Abstract

    Many years ago, Stephen Covey made the statement “Nothing Fails Like Success”. He spoke on how that the things we do to be successful today may not be enough for success tomorrow. This powerful statement can be directly applied to how that the changing landscape of IT is affecting the roles of our project teams. Processes, tools, and approaches that were once successful years ago may not be enough today, tomorrow, and beyond.

    This philosophy is highly applicable with the role of IT teams today. As teams move from waterfall to Agile & DevOps, there is a call for many changes in strategies that were once successful. The basic project dynamics are evolving into a whole new format. The concept of “shift left” moves from “good to have” to “required” in order for DEV and QA teams to engage in the project dynamics earlier. Years ago, before companies were moving to Agile & DevOps, teams would not have imagined that skills in design, arts, and user interfaces would become so important. However, they are critical roles required in aligning the project teams to ensure success.

    Therefore, teams must evolve in multiple ways. First, they must modify basic behavior patterns: increasing the courage of the team, engagement with the project team, being more business driven, and contributing more to the overall project life cycle. Secondly, communication becomes one of the most critical keys to success. And finally, teams must be willing to adapt and function in a changing environment that will continue to evolve as we learn new skills and grow with Agile & DevOps.

    Key Takeaways:
    • Evaluate the many changes that teams face as organizations evolve their SDLC process
    • Evaluate how that some things remain the same and how to identify those core elements
    • A checklist of core skills and competencies needed in Agile & DevOps environments
    • Steps each team must take today to support their organizational growth

    Change in the defensive QE mindset -QE empowerment, Being a full stack tester, Building Ops focused QE team, How to measure success of your QE team - key metrics, How to release on demand building CI/CD for large applications

    X Topic Abstract

    Problem aka Why :
    We were observing in some of our scrum teams that the software bugs were getting caught very late during the final integration cycles. This was creating effort wastages and release delays.

    How :
    As the DevOps leader for the business unit I have worked with engineering leaders to create and implement a shift left testing approach.

    What :
    Product backlog grooming sessions, test mindmap reviews (aka test huddles) before the beginning of the sprints helped us to cut down the requirement bugs. We have enhanced our unit testing practice and implemented SonarQube gatings to capture early quality issues before the code is being integrated. Fully integrated pipelines with zero-touch deploy capabilities with the help of test automation helped us to bring down the defect mountains during the final convergence cycles.

    Takeaways:
    This structured talk is about change management, culture creation, tool stacks, and practices.

    X Topic Abstract

    Key Takeaways : Different company styles, different approaches, a common goal: releasing the best product possible.

    How? There are a lot of roles contributing, but there is a new one.. a person that is still almost a mystery: the "devQaOps". A strange word meaning a lot of things. Is it a dev? a qa engineer? a system expert? what?

    I can introduce an actual one: me.

    I will try to have with you a real journey through my experience in different companies and I will share my own path trying to discover if you need a devQaOps and, in case, how to make it a key member in your staff or how to train someone to be that.

    In the end I will show you a practical example of a dynamic vertical testing architecture (frontend, backend and systems) I am currently using to face in the best way possible my daily testing-devQaOps-challenges.

    Key Takeaways : Machine Learning is revolutionizing all aspects of engineering including quality. By coupling Selenium with machine learning, we are able to open many new frontiers within UI Automation.

    Imagine an application that contains legacy and many third-party integrations. Also imagine an application that undergoes heavy UI A/B Testing. All barriers towards stable and reliable tests.

    This presentation will show how to use image processing and detection to improve test automation stability for complex applications with legacy and third-party integrations. The presentation will also touch on the basics of Machine Learning; data collection, model training and model evaluation. And how we integrate the machine learning model into a Selenium UI Automation framework. The goal is to humanize the Selenium framework: “Able to detect between a QR code and barcode” or “Able to continue clicking on a submit button with different names and designs”.

    X Topic Abstract

    In Aviation, V-Speeds are the speeds derived from data obtained from designers and manufacturers during flight testing. Using them is considered the best practice to maximize aviation safety and performance. Can this same model be applied to Software testing? How about aviation software testing? Applying the same principles of V-Speeds to obtain data about the application in a 360 viewpoint (i.e. from the designers, subject matter experts and product owners) and to maximize the test script development efficiency within the BDD framework improved the test development efficiency. This talk will focus on what we learnt during this process and how it led to a fine tuned effective BDD implementation and management.

    Key takeaways from this session:
    The Public Cloud has been a major boon for innovation and agility for companies. Many companies that have rushed to the Cloud have been shocked with constant billing surprises resulting in budget overages during a brutal economic environment. Industry reports estimate that 30-50% of Cloud spend is wasteful and avoidable. In this presentation, the participant will learn why the Cloud operating model is fundamentally different from the data-center. This will be followed by an introduction to FinOps, a new and emerging discipline that enable companies to manage costs and govern their Cloud environment. FinOps use-cases will demonstrate how to save up to 40% of testing costs, reduce cost spikes and billing shocks.

    X Topic Abstract

    Organizations have adopted Agile, Scrum, DevOps, CI/CD practices widely in order to increase their adaptivity. While doing so, they learn that it is impossible to speed up the IT deliverance without a trust in quality. Lean and SAFe have Built in Quality as a core principle, but what does that mean for teams and organizations? In this presentation Derk-Jan will share the challenges he encounters at various organizations. How do teams work and collaborate in order to release valuable increments, and what are approaches to increase the quality awareness? We will discuss the role of tester on team level but also investigate how quality is organized scaled settings where teams need to collaborate on a single increment. How can you organize quality on release level, what types of releases can we distinguish and who is responsible? What do we see in practice and how should it work? In order to have quality built in, we need more than just good tests. But a strategy also. Implementing this on various levels is challenging and has impact on the way we develop our software.

    Take Aways:
    . Understand Built in quality is a multi-level challenge that is gaining importance.
    . Get a feeling what roles are needed in order to organize testing in scaled agile organizations.
    . How to define quality feedback loops and the impact for the development and business

    Pre Conference Half-Day workshops (15 October, 2020)

    X Topic Abstract

    Selenium is built for exercising browsers in a similar manner to that of an end user, and it's great for functional testing. As many of us have realized, Selenium is not great at non-functional testing, whether that be layout, usability, performance, or other types of testing. But that doesn't mean that your tests themselves can't be repurposed to assist in these areas.
    Join Max in a hands on workshop to learn some techniques on how to expand the testing your Selenium scripts can accomplish.

    Max will cover 3 techniques: how to get security results by running Selenium tests, how to retrieve accessibility results from pages you test, and how to transform your Selenium tests into performance tests. Come with a laptop as we will walk through examples, and leave with a better understanding how to expand your testing coverage, with minimal additional effort.
