We are delighted to announce the 2nd QE Roundabout hosted by Tandem Bank in their offices in Angel. We will be having 2 talks around the topic “Quality Architecture and the impact on architecture in Testing” with speakers from ASOS and BP.

And we have 2 fantastic talks lined up for you!

Firstly, we will be hearing from Gareth Waterhouse, Lead QA Engineer at ASOS, who will be giving a talk “AA: Automating the Architecture”. Working for ASOS for 8+ years, Gareth has been working across multiple platform teams and seen the growth and the challenges that has posed. Gareth’s talk is about some of the challenges that ASOS has experienced in deploying and testing their platform. It will look at the architecture that sits behind, the challenges that poses, and the journey they went on as they used automation to help tackle this. It will talk about Azure, Load Balancers, Akamai, APIs, Automated Tests, TeamCity & Octopus, CI.... No matter how big the problem(s), by breaking them down having a clear vision and tackling them in isolation, it will help you achieve success.

And finally, we will be hearing from Peter Houghton who will give a talk "Practising test architecture". Peter, an experienced Tester, Test Architect and Scrum Master with over 20 years in the software industry focuses on helping teams to deliver technically complex systems quickly and efficiently. While starting out as a programmer, he soon found working with teams to help them build and test products - using programming and critical thinking skills - was the perfect fit. Full stack agile teams can face a bewildering array of testing challenges. How can you architect your testing to help deliver quality products when there is so much to do? (and so little time). Peter will be your guide as we examine how teams often get caught-out or stuck building high maintenance test architecture - with minimal gain. We'll explore tools and strategies that will enable you to focus their skills and deliver.
