STAREAST 2019 - Industry Technical Presentations

Get solutions to your top testing & QA challenges by attending the Industry Technical Presentations (ITPs). Offered alongside the concurrent sessions in 1-hour time slots, these presentations give you the opportunity to learn first-hand how solution providers have implemented their products and services in the real world. These solution providers are often on the leading edge of new technologies, tools, and practices and offer conference attendees a window into their future.

Industry Technical Presentations with full descriptions will be added to the conference site about 3-4 weeks before the live event.

In the meantime, join our mailing list and be the first to receive updates on the ITPs and other conference program updates.

Agile vs. DevOps For Continuous Testing: How to Optimize Your Pipeline

Thursday, May 2, 2019 - 10:00am to 10:45am

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.

Eliminate Waiting Times Within Continuous Testing

Thursday, May 2, 2019 - 11:15am to 12:00pm

Wait time is the silent killer of faster application delivery and nowhere is this more true than in testing. You need to be “testing early and often” while simultaneously creating practices that standardize and automate processes so they’re easier to monitor and enforce. Join this session to see how to:

·         Increase your DevTesters' efficiency in building and maintaining automation assets using multiple SDKs

·         Remove bottlenecks that often slow down projects and damage quality
