Shift-Left – Test Automation in Agile Environments

Shift-Left – Test Automation in Agile Environments
Unlock the Secrets – Wolfgang Platz, TRICENTIS

Abstract:

Savvy organizations today are benefitting from Agile Product Development with much tighter requirements to delivery; however, this means continuous software development and therefore, continuous software testing. Join Wolfgang Platz, CEO and Founder of TRICENTIS, as he discusses how customers in leading agile environments have solved the test automation problem and achieved significant results in increased efficiency and effectiveness. 

Wolfgang will co-present a real life case study which demonstrates important information for all testers and Q.A. professionals looking to: excel with Agile, increase test coverage, and improve time-to-market.

“Shift-Left” for Test Automation raises some key questions including:

  • When should we start the test automation and how often? 
  • What are the benefits and advantages of early automation?
  • How can you apply the same approach to testing across the different technologies such as GUI, Non-GUI, mobile/smart devices, and Cross Browser? 
  • What are the 5 “must do’s” of testing in for agile environment?  
  • How do you make test automation easy and early especially in a complex ERP environment such as SAP?

As part of the presentation, Wolfgang will conduct an interactive exercise and chalk talk on test case design to improve test coverage

Bio:

Wolfgang Platz, Founder and Managing Director, launched TRICENTIS® in 1997 as a consulting firm focused on software testing. Building on his experience as a Senior Consultant for Cap Gemini Ernst and Young, he immersed himself in the traditional ERP testing scenarios and quickly saw the need for new concepts and methodology to ensure adequate test coverage. In response, he developed the groundbreaking Linear Q Testing Methodology and the TOSCA Testsuite, built on Business Dynamic Steering.

Today Wolfgang is an industry leader and frequent presenter on the subject of test efficiency and effectiveness. From the TRICENTIS head office in Vienna, Austria, he presides over a growing firm still focused on quality assurance, software testing, and test management for over 300 customers in 25 countries.  When he can get away from business, Wolfgang enjoys literature and music, and relishes the challenges of downhill skiing and hiking in the Austrian Alps.

The Search for Surprises

The Search for Surprises – James Lyndsay, Workroom Productions Ltd

Abstract:

In this talk, James Lyndsay will identify and illustrate approaches that help you to root out the ways that working software misbehaves. We’ll put these approaches in context by describing emergent behaviours, strategies and diversity, wicked problems and the temptations of confirmation. Participants with laptops can download and work through some of the exercises.

Bio:

James Lyndsay has publicly championed and taught exploratory testing for more than ten years, and has guided exploratory teams towards interesting risks for rather longer. He built the Black Box testing machines, failed to improve the ISEB exam, convened LEWT, and started up the TestLab.
