Six Principles of Cloud DevOps At Scale

Add to calendar
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 10:30am to 11:30am

It can be easy to do cutting edge DevOps for small teams working on small scale project. Different problems start emerging when scaling DevOps processes and operations to multiple (somtimes distributed teams), complex deployments, multiple technologies from Kubernetes through instrances and serverless functions and critical production systems with millions of users being affected by each change. In this talk we'll cover some of what works and what doesn't when scaling DevOps, how to lay a good foundation which incorporates all stakeholders into the process and who exactly has the keys (to...

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

Interest in continuous testing has been growing for five years now — yet the more we talk about it, the more polarized the discussion becomes. Complicating the conversation is the fact that Agile and DevOps both drive the need for continuous testing, but both require distinctly different things from a quality perspective.

Join me for a lively discussion on what’s really required for continuous testing in the context of Agile and DevOps. See live examples of how to maximize testing pipeline efficiencies and walk away with tactics you can implement today.

Cutting through the noise of artificial intelligence in the context of software testing

Add to calendar
Thursday, June 6, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:00am

Many companies have jumped on the AI bandwagon. But how many of these so-called AI systems are really using AI? And if they are using AI, are they an intelligent use of AI? Through our intelligent use of AI, we have ended up with a system that can take a test plan written in plain English, convert it into a test, and run that test across any combination of browser or device. Results are analyzed visually, and any anomalies are presented to the user. If you update or change your UI, the tests will self-heal because the system has actually learned how the UI works.

While many enterprise mobility teams have considered incorporating a mobile device cloud into their testing labs, the question remains whether it is better to build one in-house or invest in a ready-made device cloud solution. Mobile Labs’ Steve Orlando has outlined five important questions QA teams need to consider when deciding whether to buy or build a device cloud.

In this presentation, Orlando will outline the pros and cons of buying or building a device cloud and provide valuable tips to help enterprise mobility teams make the right decision when incorporating a mobile device...
