Instill a DevOps Testing Culture in Your Team and Organization

Monday, October 3, 2022 - 1:00pm to 4:30pm

The DevOps movement is here. Companies across many industries are breaking down siloed IT departments and federating them into product development teams. Testing and its practices are at the heart of these changes. Traditionally, IT organizations have been staffed with mostly manual testers and a limited number of automation and performance engineers. To keep pace with development in the new “you build it, you own it” environment, testing teams and individuals must develop new technical skills and even embrace coding to stay relevant and add greater value to the business. DevOps really...

Automation Framework Essentials

Monday, October 3, 2022 - 1:00pm to 4:30pm

Automation is critical in today’s software delivery lifecycle, and yet many organizations struggle to keep their automation running. How can we mitigate difficulties and get consistent automation runs and results we can trust? The secret is implementing a solid automation framework, but that isn’t as easy as it seems. Chris Loder has built several automation frameworks over his career and has learned what works—and, more importantly, what doesn’t. This tutorial will cover what an automation framework is, the benefits of having one, and the keys to a successful framework, including...

Quality and Testing Measures and Metrics

Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 8:30am to 12:00pm

To be most effective, leaders—including development and testing managers, ScrumMasters, product owners, and IT managers—need metrics to help direct their efforts and make informed recommendations about the software’s release readiness and associated risks. Because one important evaluation activity is to “measure” the quality of the software, the progress and results of both development and testing must be measured. Collecting, analyzing, and using metrics are complicated because developers and testers often are concerned that the metrics will be used against them. Join Jeff Pierce as he...

Holistic Performance Testing for Modern Applications

Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 1:00pm to 4:30pm

With the advent of frameworks like Angular, React, and Vue, the landscape of application performance has changed significantly in terms of testing and measurement. Gone are the days of measuring response time as a single value based on back-end performance. In modern web and mobile applications, additional layers need to be peeled apart at the front end to truly understand its performance characteristics. Traditional approaches to performance testing are no longer sufficient to provide a delightfully responsive user experience. Join Kaushal Dalvi as he details new developments in the...

Better Test Coverage Through API Automation

Thursday, October 6, 2022 - 9:45am to 10:45am

Tackling Microservices architecture testing through data-driven and contract-based testing, presented by Royal Cyber. System performance has become critical with the pace of agile and continuous delivery, where things like microservices, cloud, IoT, and many other environments keep changing the landscape of the IT world. There are many ways we can expand how we test performance—everything from testing, assurance, validation, verification, optimization, notification, and many other activities. With AI and ML technologies, we could even build a future where generic open tests for common...

A Performance Testing Pyramid

Preview
Thursday, October 6, 2022 - 11:15am to 12:15pm
When we code a new class method, does its execution time fit within the product’s SLA for response time? When we provide an API for a real-time system, does it meet its performance budget? When we’re managing a data warehouse system, what is the latency between the ingestion component and the persistence server? When we’re planning to deploy a large-scale web application, how many servers do we need to support 1,000 requests per second and respond in 3 seconds? We’ve learned that the need for performance data spans from requirements engineering through system deployment: when code is...
