• SET #27 - Software Quality Evening at Klarna

    Klarna Bank

    We are really happy to announce SET #27. This time SET is two feature show in close cooperation with Klarna and Qgroup with really interesting talks. Agenda 17:30 - Door opens. 18:00 - Welcoming word! - Troels Olsen /Qubes, David Högberg/SET Organizer 18:10 - Talk#1 Building E2E trust in a Modularised Project - Oussama Zaki /Klarna. 18:50 - Mingle and Networking. 19:00 - Talk#2 Is AI smart enough to test itself? - Josefine Hagbarth /Qubes. 19:40 - Mingle and Networking. Talk#1: Oussama Zaki, Klarna - Building E2E trust in a Modularised Project. Description: Case study on how Klarna uses E2E to build modules trust and enable continuous delivery, across all markets and platforms. -> What E2E tests mean for Klarna? -> Why Klarna invests in E2E tests? -> What makes E2E tests hard? -> How are E2E tests being implemented in a modularised setup. Talk#2: Josefine Hagbarth, Qubes - Is AI smart enough to test itself? Description: The definition of AI is widely spread and discussed and it is very difficult if not impossible to engage in a discussion covering all aspects and technologies in one. When talking about cognitive AI, we generally talk about technology that aims to replicate and/or exceed the human mind. This is done through applying cognitive ability - encompassing several intellectual functions such as acquiring knowledge, evaluation processing and reasoning - to a product or an application. This technology is currently emerging and especially taken into use within the field of virtual agents and digital employees. In the majority of cases where a digital employee is trained for a work role, the process of acquiring knowledge is executed through supervised learning - meaning that the digital employee learns from annotated data in order to achieve a defined goal. How do we then test the knowledge of a digital employee? Is it smart enough to test itself For one application to be able to correct another, it requires that it somehow has better/more advanced knowledge or a bigger data set to draw conclusions from. The problem we are currently facing is that we always use the best model we have for the implementation we make, in order to achieve the best possible result. This means that there is a need for external testing to ensure that the digital employee is trained correctly.

  • SET#26 Eyes on the game (will be in Swedish)

    AddQ Consulting

    Vad gör man när man hamnar i ett projekt där fler variabler än det man är van med helt plötsligt spelar en viktig roll? Hur kan man utforska det okända och samtidigt hålla sin kurs? I sitt uppdrag på Tobii har Erik i deras gamingprogram fått tackla just sådana frågor. Erik Stenhammar berättar om hur han har tagit sig an en blandning av hårdvara, mjukvara och inte minst den superkräsna gamerns användarupplevelse. Allt ifrån intermittenta buggar till vikten av att ha flera tangentbord kommer att avhandlas.

  • SET#25 Driving higher quality with devops initiatives

    Epicenter, Mr Green

    About speaker Sigge Birgisson, QA Manager at Avensia: As QA Manager at Avensia, Sigge drives quality strategies across all projects of the company, enabling development teams to deliver high quality e-commerce software. With a background at Atlassian and Jayway, he coaches development teams on building quality in from the start, rather than trying to test and fix things after the fact. Plenty of things have been written about the roles of testers and QA in the ever changing world of developers, devops, SRE et al. It is a fact that devops practices are here to stay, and the demands for time to market is getting ever so small. Still, high quality is what will keep your product relevant. Sigge will describe how devops initiatives can affect the culture of quality amongst development teams, driving high quality software delivery. Examples will include automation, monitoring and infrastructure as code.

  • SET#24 Learning From Your Bugs with Henrik Warne

    • What we'll do Software bugs are a fact of life. While they can be annoying to find and fix, they are also great learning opportunities. Henrik will talk about the simple but effective method he has been using to learn from especially tricky bugs. He will also go through the most important lessons distilled from over 200 difficult bugs from the past 15 years. The lessons learnt are split into three categories: coding, testing and debugging. Speaker: Henrik Warne has been programming professionally for more than 20 years, and he still loves to code. He has worked on small embedded systems and large distributed systems, using a wide variety of technologies and programming languages. He is interested in all aspects of software engineering, from architecture, design and methodology to implementation, testing and debugging.

  • SET#21 The successes and learnings from my first experience of Mob Testing

    Henrik Brattander, software tester at TriOptima AB, will talk about his experiences with mob testing. "Mob testing is about a group of people testing together in front of one screen using one keyboard. The person in front of the keyboard is taking instructions from a designated driver, who in turn get comments and test ideas from navigators. As the testing goes on the roles are rotated so that everyone contributes. One of the mottos of Mob Testing is “Building habits and transferring skills over passing knowledge”. This presentation is a story about my first experience as a facilitator and participant of a Mob Testing session. I will talk about my context, the approach, the setup of roles in Mob Testing and also the successes and learnings from the session. /Henrik" About SET Between 17:30 and 18.00 light snacks and drinks are served and at 18:00 the actual presentation with subsequent dialogue starts.

  • SET #20 Interactive Mobile testing with Raj Subramanian + bonus

    www.rajsubra.com (http://www.rajsubra.com/) I would like to have an interactive session which I call "Lean Meetup" (something like Lean Coffee - http://leancoffee.org/ , but more simple). Step 1 - Each participant in the meetup will write a topic he/she would like to hear on mobile/mobile testing in post it/sticky notes. Each participant can write up to a max of 3 topics on different sticky notes. Step 2- We put each of these sticky notes on white board/table and start grouping them together into common themes as a group. Step 3- Now that we have categorized the sticky notes into common themes. We take a vote as a group on which theme to talk/address first. E.g. If we have 4 sticky notes on Mobile Automation and 3 sticky notes related to Mobile Exploratory Testing, we would ask the group which one to address first. If majority raise their hands for Mobile Automation, then we start talking about Mobile Automation and address the points in the sticky notes under this theme. After this is complete then we move to the next category and so on... We do this till the meetup time expires. BONUS After the meet up ends we will have a short presentation about how to brew you on beer and some beer tasting of craft beer made by our ADDQ colleague Mattias Lönnqvist.
