Test Automation thought leaders gathered for a round-table discussion about the upcoming trends, best practices, tools, and ideas that will shape your Dev/Test environment in 2019.
Joe Colantonio hosted this all-star expert panel, including: Angie Jones, Dave Haeffner, and Gil Tayar – as they shared their thoughts and insights on the hottest topics in test automation and software quality, including:
When done right, test automation is an excellent source of fast feedback for teams. When development check-ins are made, the automated tests are able to verify that the system is still working as expected.
However, for many teams, what is supposed to be this reliable feedback mechanism is nothing more than unstable spaghetti code that requires constant maintenance.
A big reason for the instability of automation code is the lack of good design and architecture. Automation code should be written with the same care and consideration as production code if the team truly wants to see a return on their investment. However, because it is different than production development, it’s not always obvious how to accomplish this.
In this advanced session, Angie Jones discusses the four pillars of object-oriented programming and how to utilize these concepts within test automation development, in order to achieve robust, reliable and maintainable automation code.
Here are some of the talking points Angie covers: Read more…
For years, front-end developers have dealt with the pain of browser-based bugs and the difficulty of testing hundreds of scenarios. They’re itching for help with front-end testing, but have struggled to find a solution that scales past a few simple tests. They have the skills to write test automation, just not the support.
Now, more than ever, is the time to team up front-end developers with QA teams. So much functionality has shifted to the front-end that past practices will no longer work. We need to focus on solid solutions that have been proven in the workforce.
In this session — hosted by Kevin Lamping, Front-end Engineer and Consultant — you’ll learn how you can build a Front-end Testing Discipline using cutting-edge tools and techniques, along with patterns to follow in organizations at various levels.
Here are some of the talking points Kevin covers in this session:
“You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression!
Join me for this hands-on session, where I will take existing tests and add to them visual testing capabilities that will allow you to test what your app looks like, and not only how it behaves. I promise: all this goodness – in just 8 lines of code!”
– Gil Tayar, Sr. Architect & Evangelist
Learn how to implement visual testing in your existing test suite, so you can increase coverage and ensure your app’s UI is bug-free when it’s released to the wild.

Learn about the key shifts and challenges that will affect your day-to-day work processes, and experience first-hand the test automation tools that will help you triumph.
Digital makes the world go ‘round, and it’s software quality on the one hand, and speed of delivery on the other, that make or break today’s business endeavors.
In the era of digital experience, where the user is king, achieving quality is crucial to a business’s success – but speed of delivery cannot be ignored anymore, or you will feel your competition breathing down your neck. Therefore, continuous refinement of the Dev-Test-Deploy pipeline is how businesses strive to achieve both quality and speed of delivery.
In this unique session we will combine insider’s knowledge of industry trends and key shifts, alongside hands-on tools, tips, and best practices – all of which will directly affect your day-to-day work processes, through-out the entire product release lifecycle.

Watch this webinar and learn how you can release apps with flawless UX, while shortening release cycles, increasing coverage and effectively eliminating front-end defects and UI bugs, with automated visual testing.
Perhaps you’ve dabbled with Page Objects, Wait Strategies (aka Implicit and/or Explicit Waits), and you feel confident about your locators. Your test code might be in pretty good shape — able to work reliably as time marches on and the application under test continues to evolve and your testing needs continue to grow with it.
But how do you know your test code is in good shape? It’s not like there is a quantitative way to measure this.
Or is there? Read more…
Automated End-to End-Testing is a two-edged sword; it can be the hero, saving you during regression testing and preventing faulty releases, or it can be the villain, slowing down the development and release process with flaky, hard to maintain and time-consuming suites that you don’t trust or want.
Test automation expert and leading software developer Fernando Martin have seen both. In this talk, he will go through key lessons he learnt, and how he applied them to open-source AugmentedDriver – a tool that allowed his team to run more than 80,000 tests in a month, running suites of more than 275 tests in less than 15 minutes.
