Hello Testing-Crazy-Folks,

I would like to invite you to the Kraftwerk to enjoy 2 talks about Software Testing.


Opening 18:30

Starting around 19:00

Every Agile Tester is also a Test Manager - and the good and evil that comes with it
by Patrick Kornmüller

Many testers take the way they should test for granted. Changing (that) is a challenge. But one that pays off.

Testers often suffer from the toolsets or test processes they have to work with. The good news is that we often don´t have to settle with what we have been handed. While there are fewer and fewer test managers in agile, it is in the hands of testers to change and improve the way they work.

On one hand, this is a great opportunity to improve your work experience and know-how enormously. On the other hand, though, the way to (partially cross-team) improvements can be a very rocky and conflictive one.

Today I will share some of my real-life experiences where I have improved testing processes, introduced new tools, or realigned testing strategies.

In my time as a tester and QA manager, I have seen many testers who have come to terms with grievances. With this presentation I want to encourage testers to take a proactive approach and improve their workplace in a sustainable way.

------------------------------------------------- - The king is dead! Really?
by Rudolf Grötz

This talk is not to condemn Cypress. It shows where Cypress has his
strengths and where Selenium is king. Not more, not less.

The throne of the test automation tools is at risk. CYPRESS.IO, a
next-generation front-end testing tool, is on the best way to dispute
Selenium's throne. Really? Dispute Selenium's throne? On Twitter, the views
are divided. Some tweets at Twitter sounds similar to a religious war in
terms of test automation tools. Cruising thru relevant forums and blogs
conveys the impression that Selenium has only drawbacks and Cypress has
only benefits. That's right. If you see it from the point of speed. But
there are other things which we must consider when we compare both tools.

In this talk, Rudolf gives us a view of these other things. Or in other
words: If you have to fell a tree then use a chain saw. If you instead use
a jigsaw, then


Socialize and discuss the talks


Ending at 22:00

Hope to see you there!
