What we're about

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to build a strong community of software testing professionals, where they can connect, learn, discuss and grow while promoting the value of practical approaches to testing.

Community Channels:

Join us on Slack for discussions and updates: https://goo.gl/rKPeFy

About Us:

Welcome to Test Engineering Alliance Meetup, which aims to provide a collaborative, friendly environment where you are encouraged to learn, exchange ideas, discuss and network with other testing & technology professionals.

We hope and we aim to improve the level of testing competency by promoting practical value-adding practices over less effective yet popular practices.

This community will grow with you, so we invite you to join us, participate and help us build a great testing community in your city.

We hold monthly networking meetups and talks, along with organizing training events and conferences.

YOW! Night - Your Tests Lack Vision: Adding Eyes to Your Automation Framework

THIS IS A PAID EVENT AND TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED THROUGH ANOTHER SITE. BOOK TICKETS HERE: https://yn201910mel-angiejones.eventbrite.com.au DESCRIPTION Your Tests Lack Vision: Adding Eyes to Your Automation Framework Automation has come a long way in assisting with regression testing efforts. Teams worldwide are successfully running hundreds of functional regression tests at every check-in. While this provides a great source of confidence, critical regression bugs are still missed using this approach. That’s because these tests can only assert on what their human programmer asks them to. Additional errors with functionality, UX, and usability often go uncaught using today’s most common test automation techniques. For this reason, the top companies in all sectors of the industry are turning to visual validation. Visual validation is a relatively new concept that can be used to enhance existing automated tests and provide an easy way to perform those difficult checks for things like UX, localization, usability, responsive design, and cross-device testing. In this talk, you’ll learn how visual validation works, see a live integration into an existing test code base, and discuss the pros and cons of using various visual validation techniques. ABOUT THE PRESENTER: ANGIE JONES Angie Jones is a Senior Developer Advocate who specializes in test automation strategies and techniques. She shares her wealth of knowledge by speaking and teaching at software conferences all over the world, as well as and leading the online learning platform, Test Automation University. As a Master Inventor, Angie is known for her innovative and out-of-the-box thinking style which has resulted in more than 25 patented inventions in the US and China. In her spare time, Angie volunteers with Black Girls Code to teach coding workshops to young girls in an effort to attract more women and minorities to tech. PROGRAM 6:00 pm Welcome networking with refreshments 6:30 pm Presentation followed by Q&A

#53 Serverless microservices: test smarter not harder

Needs a location

Modern distributed architectures are increasingly composed of large numbers of decoupled, asynchronous components. In AWS, these components are plumbed together via services like SQS, Kinesis and S3 often integrated via small and frequent numbers of microservices or lambdas. But how do you test these architectures if they are cloud native? It’s 2019, and we can do better than deploying the entire stack and running a battery of E2E tests against them. In his talk, Matt will demonstrate how you can scale development of large-scale systems across teams, technology and process, and unlock the agility of your cloud-native architecture. About Matt: Matt Fellows is a Senior Software Engineer at DiUS and a self-described polyglot who enjoys working at the intersection of technology, humans and ideas – ideally fully caffeinated – and has been doing so at startups through to enterprises since Y2K was a thing. He’s passionate about giving back to the tech community, sharing learnings at local meetups and conferences, and is a core contributor to the popular Pact microservices testing framework and author of the Muxy chaos testing tool. When not absorbing the Internet via osmosis, he can be found teaching kids at Code Club, playing basketball or pumping iron like Arnie.
