What is Agile + DevOps West? Agile + DevOps West (@TechWell, #AgileDevOpsCon) is a TechWell event that brings together practitioners seeking to accelerate the delivery of reliable, secure software applications.
The event is an opportunity to network with IT professionals and learn from industry experts about how to leverage agile and DevOps concepts to improve deployment frequency and time to market, reduce lead time, and more successfully deliver stable new features. The speaker line-up features companies like Thoughtworks, Spotify, Capital One, Google, Nationwide, and more! This year’s conference will be held at the iconic Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV June 2–7.
Angie Jones, Senior Developer Advocate at Applitools, will be taking the stage for multiple sessions:
Join Angie for her first talk, “What’s That Smell? Tidying Up Our Test Code” on Wednesday, June 5 @ 10:30 am PT, where she will walk through test automation codebase littered with several bad coding practices. During the session, attendees will learn the reasons why particular coding approaches are considered problematic and how to implement clean coding practices within test automation.
Then, later that day Angie will participate in a panel discussion, “What’s the Next Big Thing in DevOps?” @ 3:00 p.m. PT, joined by Greg Sypolt from Gannett|USA Today Network and Sandy Park from Apptest.ai. Angie, Greg and Sandy will be fielding questions from the audience to help them better understand DevOps practices and what the future holds for DevOps and other software delivery trends.
We are proud to be a Silver Sponsor of Agile + DevOps West conference. Find us at our booth in the expo hall, where we will share the latest visual testing and monitoring techniques that support automation and improved visual UI testing through the Application Visual Management (AVM) approach. One of the latest additions to the product toolkit is Applitools’ new Visual Grid, which helps QA teams create the fastest, easiest path to test automation success.
Also, make sure to check out the results from the 2019 State of Automated Visual Testing Report!
Conducted as an independent survey of over 350 companies, the data outlines research findings for visual testing and quality and identifies key patterns that drive excellence in Application Visual Management. The report finds that the average company allows over 108 visual bugs to escape annually, with the most challenged 30% of companies see 22 bugs escape per release costing them close to $7 million annually.
