Over last few years Testing has been accepted as an early activity in the software development lifecycle. This was predominantly due to the widespread adoption of Agile and DevOps methodologies by organizations across the globe. The goal was to get their apps faster to the market. Over the 2017-18 we have seen an increase in the use of virtualization and service oriented architecture along with cloud computing that led to many testing tool vendors vying for the market space in the testing arena. This conference brings to you the industry best practice needed for Agile Testing and test Automation.

The Agile Testing and Automation Day 2018 will be taking place in Singapore on this October 26, 2018 with a focus on the software testing best practices and solutions to overcome challenges in the Agile testing environment. The conference will be a key meeting place for the software testing professionals and enthusiast having an eye to learn the latest in the Agile Testing domain.


The conference features industry experts sharing real time experiences and thought leadership on some of the latest and most vital 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.

Opening Talk and Welcome Note
Evidence - what really did get tested and can one prove it? - Tim Carpenter, Director - Head, Test Engineering, Standard Chartered Bank
"Testing in Agile world is not a phase rather; testing is the only way to approve that something is really done from an end customer’s perspective and without a doubt - Integrated Development Environment and automated test tools frees tester’s time to explore the business needs. Agile development is all about continuous releases in a number of iterations which is the reason test automation team often miss out on quality objectives. In cases where there are more sprints requiring fixing, it becomes even more difficult to devote time identifying, fixing and testing each iteration. This is why it is important to allocate proper time for testing and start conducting test automation in parallel to development cycles to avoid lags. Conducting parallel testing also will help the team become more productive and respond to requirements quickly, avoiding last minute rushes. Moreover, it will also help them invest time in exploratory testing, which requires manual efforts. It is important to develop an approach which promotes “A testing mindset” – “No more Us vs. Them” rather whole team approach & collective testing ownership. " - Majid Bhatti, Programme Director / Agile Coach, DBS Bank
Often people are not clear on how Agile and DevOps fit together and the culture change for developers. A key component of DevOps is test automation which is key from automated unit test, to Continuous Integration, and Continuous Delivery. They are very complementary, and often adopting Agile is the driver for the introduction of DevOps and test automation in an organization. In this talk I will share from my experience as an enterprise Agile & DevOps coach (working in the Singapore financial services sector), DevOps enthusiast, and blogger (Auspicious Agile) how Agile and DevOps are completely complementary, and the culture change that takes place in organizations and development teams. We will also explore why test automation is such a key and core component of Agile / DevOps. I think that many practitioners of DevOps / test automation wish to better understand how Agile fits into the picture and vice versa (Agile practitioners want to better understand DevOps). Some attendees may not have considered previously how Agile, DevOps, and test automation work in a complementary way, and this talk may open up new "food for thought". DevOps culture change and principles like Gene Kim’s “Three Ways” - Flow, Feedback, and Continuous Learning, are key to successful use of DevOps, test automation and CI/CD. I think the talk will be valuable to a great number of attendees. - GJohn Okoro, Head of Agile Practice, Orbium
Robotic process automation (RPA) has been found to be useful for tasks that involve structured digital data, follow pre-defined rules testing. However, software testing tools without Artificial Intelligence (AI) is difficult to maintain and scale. Some test scenarios are so diverse that there are hundreds or thousands of combinations and decision points. Rules may be difficult to define at times. Will your test project then be doomed for failure? Bring in A.I. (artificial intelligence) to complement the conventional testing tool features, so that you can handle more than just simple structured data and simple decision making. This talk will shed light on how you can harness the prowess of A.I. to make your testing projects cover greater scope to bring more impact and success. - Christopher Lim, CEO/Co-founder, Glee Trees Pte Ltd
Employing Divergence in Digital Disruption - Ezril Jamil, Speaker Trainer / Corporate Trainer, Primus Vision Pte Ltd
How the connected world depends on testing, and the importance of connected device testing for developers - Aman Basanti, Operations Transformation Consultant, Ericsson Telecommunications Pte Ltd
"2 years ago we started our journey in Digital Transformation in Data Group. It wasn't trivial task as changes needed to be done in both technology and new cultural change inside organisation and teams. Any transformation can not be done only by pushed from outside, we needed to find a way to educate teams and create new bread of Agile and technologist champions inside the organisation that can continuously drive changes needed. I will share my experience ""failures and successes"" as a DevOps leader for Data Group, What did I learn and how can I do it better next time. " - Ion Mudreac, Technology Lead Digital Banking, Standard Chartered Bank
Testing and Governance Framework for Microservices and APIs - Jon Scheele, Coach/Trainer, Digital and Analytics Consultant
