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...

Integrating Automated Testing into DevOps

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

In many organizations, agile development processes are driving the pursuit of faster software releases, which has spawned a set of new practices—DevOps. DevOps stresses communications and integration between development and operations, including rapid deployment, continuous integration, and continuous delivery. Because DevOps practices require confidence that changes made to the code base will function as expected, automated testing is essential. Join Jeffery Payne as he discusses the unique challenges associated with integrating automated testing into continuous integration/continuous...

DevSecOps by Default: What Have, Can and Must We Learn from Log4Shell?

Preview
Wednesday, October 5, 2022 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

End of 2021 Log4Shell ruined many Christmas holidays for developers, architects, ITOps and especially Dev(Sec)Ops teams. How did this incident help us strengthen our software supply chain? How have DevSecOps adopted their delivery and operations orchestration to prevent using vulnerable code or react faster once a new breach is detected?

In this session we cover stories from DevSecOps teams that were on the frontlines when Log4Shell hit. We look into application security approaches and tools to detect vulnerabilities during testing, delivery as well as in production and see how...

Speed Up your Cloud Transformation by Giving Developers Back Control Over Their Dev & Test Environments

Wednesday, October 5, 2022 - 2:45pm to 3:45pm

Todays Cloud Transformation is accompanied by a number of vital policies and norms, important for delivering scalable and robust systems at high quality. Yet, the same practices can also be road-blockers for cloud developers who are striving to build bleeding-edge systems. Although fast, iterative development processes with quick feedback loops are vital to creating a culture of continuous innovation across the organization, handcuffs are all too often imposed on cloud developers by important, yet cumbersome cloud approval processes, or unnecessarily long wait times during deployment and...

Cypress Holds the Belt. Is Selenium Still in the Fight?

Preview
Thursday, October 6, 2022 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Cypress is standing tall as the leader in today’s automated testing community. Does that mean Selenium has been knocked out? I thought so after first using Cypress to build my company’s corporate website automation suite. I loved the simplicity of the install, the stability of the test runs and the easier-to-read code, not to mention the size of the active community. Using cy.contains() made writing automated tests so easy. But all it took was one week on a client project to convince me that Selenium was not out of the fight. Cypress was not able to handle authentication with Azure AD...

Thursday, October 6, 2022 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

The worst kept secret to success in our industry is speed, resiliency, and security. The multitude of tools available to help master the techniques of producing best in class software can put us into a maintenance overdose. Luckily for us, most of these tools today are now packaged as Docker containers opening an opportunity for us to rapidly set up and orchestrate their setup using Kubernetes. Using a gitOps approach, we have found a way to neatly connect a CI/CD process for setting up, maintaining, upgrading and tearing down these applications using ArgoCD and Terraform. Follow us...

Upskilling Your Team for Agile Testing

Thursday, October 6, 2022 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Agile and DevOps are transforming software development: production cycles are accelerating, more functions are being automated, and silos across the organization are coming down. But software testing continues to be a challenge: 43% of software developers say that testing is their biggest pain point during development. To help their organizations embrace agile development, QA leaders need a plan to upskill their teams. The agile tester needs a wide-ranging skillset: manual and automated testing, DevOps tools, communication, project management, and the ability to connect code to the...
