We are looking forward to participating in STARWEST 2019 at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California early next month (October).
What is STARWEST? STARWEST (@TechWell, #STARWEST) is an annual conference hosted by TechWell that brings together the top leaders in the software testing industry. At this conference, attendees will have access to over 100 learning and networking opportunities. This year’s conference will be held from September 29 – October 4.
We are scheduled to present throughout the conference beginning Monday, September 30 @ 8:30 a.m. PDT. Angie Jones — Senior Developer Advocate at Applitools and leader of Test Automation University — will be presenting an exclusive tutorial “Visual Validation for Test Automation.” Angie will be discussing automated UI tests using Java, Selenium WebDriver, JUnit, and Applitools, as well as evaluating visual test results and where to add visual assertions.
On Tuesday, October 1 @ 8:30 a.m. PDT and Wednesday, October 2 @ 2:45 p.m. PDT, Angie will present “Clean Coding Practices for Test Automation” and “What’s That Smell? Tidying Up Our Test Code”. During both presentations, Angie will walk through a test automation code base and discuss violations as well as a cleaner approach. Participants will learn why certain approaches prove to be problematic and how to implement cleaner practices within test automation.
Applitools’ co-founder and COO Moshe Milman shares “Selenium IDE Is Making a Comeback—Can Codeless Testing Scale?” on Thursday, October 3 @ 11:15 a.m. PDT. Moshe dives into a hands-on demo of the new Selenium IDE, reviews some of its new capabilities, and goes over the latest open source and commercial tools and trends in the codeless test automation space.
Angie is also scheduled to present on Friday, October 4 @ 10:00 a.m. PDT regarding “Societal Influence on the Gender Imbalance in Technology”. Angie will look at the gender imbalance in the tech field, a field once dominated by women. Participants will look back to the 1980s when a decline in women working in the tech industry took place and examine how women can shift this narrative today.
