Chris Warren, Independent Test Consultant

Banging the drum...

Ever had a great idea on how to improve the way your team tests only to find that (it falls on deaf ears / you can’t gain any traction). What is going on? It’s a good idea, isn't it? All you want to do is make things better for people.

I’d like to talk about some of my own experiences of being in situations like this and explore some of the reasons why you may face resistance, opportunities to look out for that may help you implement change and discuss when it might be time to just call it a day. Banging a drum for too long can lead to you banging your head against a brick wall.

Jorge Millares-Bobet, Software Developer in Test, Ten10

[FLASH TALK] Bringing model-based testing into your test team

This flash talk will discuss how to get started with generating test scenarios against a model, using technologies we are comfortable with and tools that we might not have come across. It will also talk about the benefit with a reduction in test maintenance, time spent writing automated tests and an uptick in tea breaks.

15 MIN BREAK

Usmaan Waheed, Software Test Engineer at BPDTS LIMITED

Introduction to Cloud

This talk will give an overview of what cloud is, where it's heading and the role a tester plays.

This event is sponsored by Ten10.

We look forward to seeing you there!
