Dev + Ops = DevOps --> QA + Ops = QaOps

Hi everyone! Please join us for our March event as we present Chris Hoey, Senior IT Manager at Wireless Generation, who will share some of the surprising ways Selenium has brought value to his company outside of the testing function.

Chris began his career at Wireless Generation as a Lead QA engineer responsible for writing many of the Selenium tests. When he transitioned over to Operations, he decided to carry the tests over to see new life not previously thought of.

This included periodically benchmarking applications from tests, helping customer care debug browser specific issues seen on their site and playing back the tests into a jmeter proxy to extend the tests into load testing scripts. It also spawned a new name (coined by Chris) to describe the joining of these two groups - QaOps. 

This talk will last for about an hour followed by Q&A. Thanks to our friends at Conductor for hosting the meetup and for providing food and drinks. We really appreciate it!

See you there!

    I enjoyed sharing some of our experiences abusing Selenium for Operations and coming up with a new buzzword. Welcome QaOps to the interwebs. =) Check back shortly for links to the slides and video. Thanks to everyone who attended.
