Presentation:

Max Saperstone tells the story of how a healthcare company striving to get to continuous releases built up their automation to secure confidence in regular releases. Initially, as no test automation existed, Max was able to capitalize on a greenfield test automation opportunity, and in the span of 12 months, develop over 2,000 test cases. A pipeline was created to verify the integrity of the automated tests and build Docker containers for simplified test execution. These containers could be easily re-used by developers and the DevOps team to verify the application. Join Max as he walks through the feedback loop that was created to allow application verification to go from hours to minutes. Max shares his choices of using BDD tooling, integrated with WebDriver solutions, to verify the state of web and mobile applications. Finally, he covers how functional tests were utilized to assist with security and performance testing and to engage the entire QA team in test creation.

Presenter:

Max Saperstone has been working as a Software and Test Engineer for over a decade, with a focus on test automation within the CI/CD process. He specializes in open source tools, including the Selenium Tool Suite, JMeter, AutoIT, Cucumber, and Chef. Max has led several test automation efforts, including developing an automated suite focusing on web-based software to operate over several applications for Kronos Federal. He also headed a project with Delta Dental, developing an automated testing framework to run Cucumber tests over multiple test interfaces and environments, while also developing a system to keep test data 'ageless'. He currently heads up the development of Selenified, an open-source testing framework to allow testing of multiple interfaces, custom reporting, and minimal test upkeep.
