We would like to invite you for a Swiss Community Event organised by all .NET User Groups in Swietzerland and lead by .NET User Group Bern. IMPORTANT! A registration is required! Register at https://www.meetup.com/NET-User-Group-Bern/events/259332992/ Abstract .NET went open source (really really open source) a few years back...but what's been made newly possible? How flexible is it? How open is it? How big can it scale and how small can it get? How do we reconcile .NET Core, .NET Framework, and Mono? Where does WebAssembly fit in? What about WinForms and WPF? Cross platform UI? Join Scott Hanselman as we tour the last 10 years and explore the next 10 years of .NET in this demo-filled session. We look forward to your participation!
Abstract: Automate your Automation - When Will the Robots Take Over Human Sense-Making? Historically, Software Testing and Software Development have always made use of automation. We have a powerful tool on our hands and it helps us to accelerate and enhance our own capabilities. However, there have been some misunderstandings that lead to unreasonable expectations. Software Testing has often been partitioned in what is called “manual” and “automated” testing. This session will have a look into some of the thinking pitfalls and explore the capabilities and limitations of automation in testing. It is a ultimately a session about Robots, Language and Humans.
