STARCANADA 2019 Continuous Delivery Requires Radical Changes for Testers
Slideshow

What do testing and quality look like in a continuous delivery world? Who does what and how? Is there still a need for testers, or do developers do all the testing? Is it really possible to achieve quality when you deploy to production many times each day?

What’s Our Job When the Machines Do Testing?
Slideshow

The engineering community is beginning to explore the exciting capabilities of AI in order to remove even more mundane and manual tasks from our jobs. Join Geoff Meyer as he provides a framework for organizations to use when considering the application of AI to tasks within their SDLC.

The Impact of the IoT: What’s in Store for Testing
Slideshow

No longer just a futuristic concept, the internet of things (IoT) has a strong presence in our world. If your business is not prepared for it, you’re already behind. With the proliferation of connected “things”—devices, appliances, cars, and even clothes—Jennifer Bonine says that the stage is set and IoT mobile apps are here to stay. Testers are now being asked to test on more complex devices and more advanced platforms, so they must keep up with the demand for new skills, new strategies, and an entirely new set of knowledge for testing IoT apps. Jennifer will review where we are today and explore the challenges that IoT and increased complexity pose to our testing profession. See what tools are available to aid mobile IoT testing, discuss what to consider and plan for, hear how other organizations are preparing, and learn the new skills testers need.

Continuous Performance Testing: A Tale of Two Worlds
Slideshow

Once upon a time, in a land far away, application performance was a differentiator in the market. But in today's competitive landscape, having a highly responsive and scalable application is a basic expectation. Performance no longer lives on the fringe of the quality world.

Smart Testing with AI Using Data Mining
Slideshow

The approaches to testing are continuously evolving as we try to keep up with the application needs of today’s users. Our industry is facing a new paradigm where AI is helping achieve scale, coverage, and business impact for many organizations.

Evolve Your Testing the Pokémon Way
Slideshow

How can you know that your services will handle the requests of millions of users a day? Or that making a fundamental change to one of your technologies won’t break your user experience? The answer: By having your entire team use and build on a phased approach to testing the right pieces at the right time. The Pokémon Company International services group develops and updates the services used for logging into the Pokemon.com website and applications like Pokémon Go and Pokémon TV. Since the launch of Pokémon Go in 2016, their quality-focused team has worked to develop strategies that reduce the number and duration of customer issues in the face of millions of daily active users. Join Paul Grimes as he presents the phases their test engineers go through and the tools used to ensure that the services Pokémon is delivering are capable of meeting users' demands.

Make Your UI Tests Resilient with the Next Generation of Frameworks
Slideshow

A big problem with test automation on any platform or operating system is synchronizing test automation interactions with the UI. It is challenging to know when the UI is ready for the next automated click().

Driving Quality with the "Yes, If ..." Mentality
Slideshow

It can be easy to feel like the villain when you work in testing. After all, part of the job is to point out when things are broken, people have made mistakes, timelines aren't realistic, or a plan can't work. But if your team feels like you're a frequent naysayer, trust can and will erode.

Testers: The Unsung Data Heroes
Slideshow

Connor Dodge believes that data is the most valuable commodity in the world, and that testers generate some of the most valuable data in product development organizations. Test data can inform release schedules, aid in decision-making, and shape the direction of the product.
