Third time's the charm, right? In our case we hope all asserts are equally good, however we have great feelings about the upcoming Kraków.assert(3). This is due to two great talks we have prepared for this time. Natalia will share with you her experience on building a maintainable regression test suite. Anatolii will provide his perspective on responsibilities of a Quality Engineer in the fast-moving world of DevOps.
Both speakers have years of experience under their belts in their respective areas, so we hope the talks will be a treat to everyone, experienced or not.
You can read the detailed agenda below:
18:00-18:30 — networking in the loft
18:30-19:15 — [EN] "Green regression tests – a holy grail or a must?" by Natalia Szydłak
19:15-19:45 — beer & pizza time!
19:45-20:30 — [EN] “Quality Assurance in DevOps” by Anatolii Hanziuk
20:30-00:00 — keep networking!
Green regression tests – a holy grail or a must? [EN] by Natalia Szydłak
Description: Do you struggle with flaky tests? Does maintenance and regression analysis consume vast amounts of your time? Does no one care about test results, because they are unreliable?
If the answer to any of those questions is “yes”, then this presentation is for you.
You will learn how to write reliable tests; what to do with failing legacy test code; how to drive an organizational and mental change to reap fresh, juicy green test crops each and every day.
Natalia Szydłak is a .NET developer at Chatham Financial with over 10 years of professional experience in IT as a QA, developer and project manager. Focused on improving quality and efficiency of test processes. Certified ISTQB Test Manager. Member of Toastmasters International Speakers Club.
[EN] “Quality Assurance in DevOps” by Anatolii Hanziuk
In the DevOps world, the responsibilities of a Quality Engineer are not quite clear. During this talk I will talk about how they have changed in recent years. We’ll discuss DevOps practices and will map them to activities that Quality Engineers should do in DevOps era. Also, we’ll review tools that could help you to implement these activities in a fast and effective way. After this talk, you’ll will get an idea how a Quality Engineer could develop to stay abreast of the latest and greatest in the IT sphere. I hope after this talk you will get new insights into influencing delivery of a product with high velocity and in an efficient way
Anatolii is a fan of clean code, automated testing and DevOps practices. He has expertise in automating processes, sharing the lessons learnt from that and building communities of quality engineers. Apart from that he likes exploring new countries and cultures, solving intellectual puzzles and Formula1. Currently Anatolii is a senior quality assurance engineer at Amazon.
Pizza and beer will be provided at the event.
