Location image of event venue


Four years ago, Trish Khoo embarked on a wondrous journey. She left her test automation job in Sydney and joined Google, working first in London and then in Mountain View, California.

In this talk, Trish will recount four of the biggest lessons she learned while working for one of the world’s top software companies.

1. Her job did not exist at Google - nobody wrote automated tests as a full time job

2. Smaller tests are better - to the extent that large tests were frowned upon

3. One-push deployment is possible but you need a LOT of safety nets

4. A learning culture is powerful Trish Khoo has over 10 years’ experience in software development and testing.

She has spoken at many conferences worldwide, including Selenium Conference, Eurostar and a keynote presentation at CAST. Trish is currently based in Brisbane and is available for consulting services. For more information, see her website (
