Getting to Continuous Testing

Add to calendar

Max Saperstone tells the story of how a health care company striving to get to continuous releases built up their automation to secure confidence in regular releases. Initially, as no test automation existed, Max was able to take an opportunity for greenfield test automation and, in the span of twelve months, develop over two thousand test cases. A pipeline was created to verify the integrity of the automated tests and build Docker containers for simplified test execution. These containers could be easily reused by developers and the DevOps team to verify the application. Join Max as he walks through the feedback loop that was created to allow application verification to go from hours to minutes. Max will share his choices of BDD tooling, integrated with WebDriver solutions, to verify the state of web and mobile applications. Lastly, he'll cover how functional tests were used to assist with security and performance testing and engage the entire QA team in test creation.

Max Saperstone has been working as a software and test engineer for over a decade, with a focus on test automation within the CI/CD process. He specializes in open source tools, including the Selenium tool suite, JMeter, AutoIT, Cucumber, and Chef. Max has led several test automation efforts, including developing an automated suite focusing on web-based software to operate over several applications for Kronos Federal. He also headed a project with Delta Dental, developing an automated testing structure to run Cucumber tests over multiple test interfaces and environments, while also developing a system to keep test data "ageless." He currently heads up the development of Selenified, an open source testing framework to allow for testing of multiple interfaces, custom reporting, and minimal test upkeep.
