  • Test Automation for AWS Lambda Serverless Computing Platform - Chris Macgowan

    Building Test Automation for AWS Lambda Serverless Computing Platform

    AWS Lambda is an event-driven, serverless computing platform provided by Amazon as a part of the Amazon Web Services. It is a computing service that runs code in response to events and automatically manages the computing resources required by that code.

    During this discussion we will look at building test automation for AWS Lambda Functions. We will explore testing Lambda Functions locally and inside the AWS environment on a deployed Lambda Function. We will look at testing standard Lambda Functions and HTTPS endpoints.

    Session Takeaways:

    • Overview of AWS Lambda serverless computing platform
    • Building Regression Tests for Lambda functions

    Bio:

    Chris wrote his first software in college targeting the Intel 8080 and Motorola 6800 microprocessors. As a Software Engineer he has engineered software using C/C and Java targeting the Windows and Unix platforms.

    Today Chris is working as a consultant for Sogeti USA building Test Automation Solutions.

  • Yellow is the New Green: Rethinking Test Success - by Bill Roske

    Social and Pizza at 6:15 pm

    Presentation starts at 6:30 pm

    Presentation Abstract:
    “When will the tests be green?” Have you heard that question? I submit that, until we fix all the bugs, they never will be! Project leaders look to the test results to know if we can release. They want to see “Green” on the status board. Green means all tests are passing. Will they ever? Experience tells us very few releases are delivered completely bug free. When designing metrics we need to take care that we do not encourage bad behavior. Pushing for “Green” test results can result in bad behavior: The removal of failing tests or (worse yet) the modification of tests to pass with known defects in the software, all in an effort to report “Green”. This presentation suggests a new way to manage results, and expectations, so that your tests are true to the quality of the product.
