STAREAST 2017 - Software Testing Conference

STAREAST Testing Adapting Test Teams to Organizational Power Structures

Scapegoats, spin-doctors, white knights, and sycophants—have you found your test team playing these roles? Organizations, both large and small, often have distinct cultures and power structures with significant but insidious impact on how individual testers and teams are expected to operate.

STAREAST Testing Agile Testing at Scale

Over the past twenty years, Mary Thorn has had the opportunity to work at many startups, creating several QA/test departments from scratch. For the past ten years, she has done this in agile software companies. Recently Mary moved from leading small agile test organizations to leading a...

STAREAST Testing AI and Machine Learning for Testers

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the most important technology for software testers to understand today. All software will soon have AI-powered components, and they are unlike anything you’ve ever tested before. As risky as AI can be, it is a powerful weapon for testers to solve some of...

Mobile Dev + Test 2017

Mobile Dev Test A Data-Driven Approach for Mobile Testing and Automation

In the world of mobile app testing, data is your friend. So harness your data to your advantage to create an automation and testing strategy. Satyajit Malagu acknowledges that multiple devices, platforms, languages, crashes, bugs, and app stores make the scope of mobile app testing...

Mobile Dev Test A New Approach to IoT Safety, Risk, and Vulnerability Analysis

The ugly truth is that the interconnection of devices with IoT systems can lead to failures which result in physical injury, unacceptable risk, or cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Preventing such accidents requires identifying hazards, risks, and security vulnerabilities during development.

Mobile Dev Test A Screenless Future Is Closer Than You Think

Somewhere near you is a device with a screen. You can’t live without that device. In fact, you are reading this right now on that—or another—device. Within a few years, the screens that we so depend on today will begin to disappear. After all, we are analog creatures, and we are meant to...

Agile Dev, Better Software & DevOps Conference East 2016

Collocated East Logo Agile Metrics: Make Better Decisions with Data

Some consider measurement in agile development destructive—or at the very least useless. Larry Maccherone disagrees and offers insight into how you can use metrics in an agile environment to make life better. How do you know when you are ready to introduce metrics into the environment?

Larry Maccherone
Collocated East Logo Agile Requirements—From Breadth to Depth

Requirements elicitation and documentation can be frustrating in an agile process. Some interpret the Agile Manifesto statement “working software over comprehensive documentation” to mean that no requirements documentation is warranted because the code documents the requirements. Others...

Ken Pugh
Collocated East Logo Agile Snafus: When Good Teams Go Bad

Agile done well can lead to great successes—rapid delivery of business and user value, high product quality, fast time to market, and engineering productivity. Agile done poorly leads to skepticism of the methodologies, distrust of the principles, and failure to deliver—in essence, a snafu...

STARCANADA 2016 - Software Testing Conference

STARCanada Logo Accessibility Standards and Testing Techniques: Be Inclusive or Be Left Behind

While Information and Communication Technology (ICT) accessibility for a wider spectrum of users—including the blind—and their interfaces is being required by law across more jurisdictions, testing for it remains limited, naïve, and too late. The consequences of staying ignorant include...

STARCanada Logo Add Security Testing Tools to Your Delivery Pipeline

Developing a delivery pipeline means more than just adding automated deploys to the development cycle. To be successful, quality testing of all types must be incorporated throughout the process to ensure that problems aren’t slipping through. Those checks must include security, or you risk...

Gene Gotimer
STARCanada Logo Addressing the Challenges of Mobile Test Automation

As technology continues to disrupt every industry, mobile applications are increasingly becoming a primary way to interact with customers. Mobile application test automation tools and frameworks are far from being as mature as web test automation tools. The mobile test automation space...

STARWEST 2016 - Software Testing Conference

A Day in the Life of a Test Architect

Although Lee Hawkins stumbled into testing—in 1999 after migrating from the UK to Australia amid a tech boom time—he has since become a passionate member of the worldwide testing community and currently holds the title of principal test architect. So, what does that really mean? 

Lee Hawkins
A DevOps Primer: Whole Team Approaches for Better Software Quality

With fingers wagging and eyes squinting, they query Why didn’t you find this problem during testing? How many times have you tried to defend yourself with things like We can’t test everything or It’s a corner case? Everyone knows you can’t improve quality with testing alone, so what can...

Marianne Hollier
Adaptive Automation: Tests that Recover Instead of Failing

Are you tired of flaky automation scripts that fail without apparent cause? Are most script failures due to bugs in the test script rather than bugs in the product? Do you simply want to get more out of your automation framework? Many testers and organizations are frustrated with the high...
