The conference featured industry experts sharing real time experiences and thought leadership on some of the vital and latest topics in the Agile Testing domain. Their presentation topic and level of industry experience fills a specific gap in the field, making it easier to understand the major Agile testing challenges, and knowing how to overcome them.
Curated on the theme ‘Breaking Barriers, Meeting Excellence’, a full day event bought together bright minds, leaders, practitioners and professionals from the Agile management and software testing domain promoting discussion over tools, techniques, developments and best practices in Agile Testing area which will act as catalyst to deliver excellent business value while overcoming challenges.
“In the brave new world of Agile and DevOps, traditional testing skills are obsolete and no longer serve the purpose. The Tester mindset needs to be hard wired to wear different thinking hats of an end user, BA, designer, developer and finally Tester. I call them as ‘Quality Engineers’ and not Testers. Often we underplay their role , however time and again the QE fraternity has proved their worth and is rapidly evolving. I perceive this People Transformation has 4 levels of maturity( Beginner , Intermediate , Expert & Guru) and our community is ready to embark on this journey.
Looking forward to seeing you all where I’ll share more details on above. Happy Testing ”- Sachin S Jain , Assurance Services CoE Head, L & T Infotech
Machine learning is redesigning the way products are built. These are non-deterministic applications requiring newer ways of testing. The outputs are not predictable in a linear way. Results are not binary but in terms of probabilities and confidence levels. Designing quality assurance in such a domain requires newer approaches. The session aims at introducing the audience to the problem domain and the thought process to approach in the testing area.- Hrishikesh Karekar , Lead Agile Coach, Amdocs
complexity of modern technology and modern business have resulted in customers
choosing products and services solely based on the quality of the experiences
they have with them. An approach known as "Design Thinking" is
playing a greater role in achieving this aspect. Design thinking is a
human-centric, discovery validation, iterative prototype-testing and out-of-box
experimentation that employs various analytical and creative approaches to
generate test ideation approaches.
This session starts with the introduction to Design Thinking adopted by Stanford, IDEO and Google and than focuses the spotlight onto testing and culminates with what I hope would lead you to think differently in a non-linear way while performing the role of a Quality Engineer bringing the human aspect to the upcoming artificial intelligence bots era of Information Technology.
