"Test Data as a Service"
Presented by Mark and Pete from Wotif.
They have collaborated to build a test data service that allows for the rapid and dynamic creation of test data for use in test automation. This idea is an extension of some of the best practice principles described in Jez Humble and Dave Farley's Continuous Delivery book as well as incorporating some other ideas and principles that they've picked up along the way.
The talk will cover:
- Guiding principles and motivations for this approach- How the system works and the benefits it provides over other common approaches- Examples of using the system in acceptance testing
Pizzas on from ~5.30pm with the talks kicking off at 6pm
