Continuous Testing: A Fishbowl Discussion

Add to calendar

Many people confuse continuous testing with test automation, but continuous testing is much more. It requires that all tests to certify a feature are automated and part of the continuous integration pipeline, and the results of those tests determine automatically when the next step should be run. We will discuss how companies have enabled this process, common pitfalls and how to avoid them, and how to move from automation to continuous testing. In a fishbowl discussion, the audience members sit in a circle of chairs in the middle of the room. Several brave souls will fill all but one of the chairs in the "fishbowl." When you want to join as a speaker, you enter the fishbowl and sit in the empty chair, and one of the other speakers voluntarily leaves so that one chair is always available for a new speaker. Come join Adam Auerbach as he facilitates this exciting conversation. You'll hear ideas and experiences from experts and peers alike, and you can be as involved as you wish—just listen from the audience, or jump into the fishbowl.
