Tonight will have 2 awesome tech talks:
#1 Saying No to Selenium Tests
How many times do we test the same things at multiple layers, multiple levels, adding time to the build process and testing cycle, delaying the feedback? We know what to test and how to test, but what is the right place to test it? Using a case study, we will see how each component can be tested and bring all these tests together to understand and build the testing pyramid and how it enables us to build the right testing framework with fewer selenium i.e functional tests.
#2 Open Source Taurus Test Automation
You will be glad to know that the creator of the Taurus project is visiting us from Moscow to deliver a talk.
Andrey Pokhilko is a renowned thought leader and innovator within the Apache JMeter performance testing community, founder of JMeter-Plugins.org - the largest source of independent plugins for JMeter, and creator and lead developer on the Taurus project. Andrey has worked extensively to create and develop tools that enhance the Apache JMeter protocol coverage and analytical reporting capabilities. He has world-class experience with large-scale performance testing, having led the load testing team for five years at search engine giant Yandex, and with the BlazeMeter team for 4 years.
Andrey will share the background reasons for, and the process behind, creating Taurus, an open source framework for continuous testing which helps you by hiding the complexities of running performance tests. Andrey will demonstrate the value that Taurus bring to performance and functional testing and to test automation, and how it both simplifies and extends the capabilities of Apache JMeter, without the need to actually master JMeter.
