Gamify your QA

We all like games. We play them regularly and often, let it be computer games or board games. We play them alone or with friends and spend time with them, although there is no economic gain. We also like our work – but often there are parts that seem tedious, repetitive and are considered as “it must be done”.

So, why don’t we bring some game fun into these parts of our work?

This talk introduces the concept of gamification and how it helps to motivate as in our daily work by showing a real-life example of a gamified QA. You will learn how to use gamification to boost daily efforts regarding QA & Testing, but you will see – that is definitely not the limit.

Moving faster + Improving Quality = Testing in Production? Hell yes.

How would you implement big changes in the work processes, without losing momentum in the portfolio development, AND without putting the quality of the platforms at risk?

That question, and a lot of others, we will try to answer in this presentation.

The work process that we are changing is moving from scrum teams, into Dual Track Agile across the whole company. It is a long journey, and we are still far from the Finish Line, but we will share our insights so far.

We are right now splitting up our big monoliths, by moving bits and pieces into smaller microservices with each their own responsibilities. By doing this we can minimize our risks, when deploying to production, but we can also make sure that we are ready to innovate and experiment even more with our products.
But, how do we make sure that the overall quality of our platforms are still high standard, when we deploy to production all the time? And how do we make sure the our test environments are up to date with all the latest versions when we suddenly have 120+ services, and some of them are depended on each other?

All this and more will be on the agenda, so feel very welcome to tune in when QA Engineers Jette Pedersen and Louise Rasmussen from eBay is presenting.

The Prophecy Fulfilled

Test automation has been the talk of the town for many years, with many experts proclaiming it is the next big shift in testing. This promise has not yet been fulfilled, but with more and more companies doing an agile transformation it is finally about to be fulfilled.

This presentation will look at promises of the past and why they are finally on the brink of realization. We will look at how test automation is being done for the most part currently, and how to actually do it. As an example we will be examining mobile test automation, its weaknesses, how to do it properly, and how to write testcases that are ready for both development and testing, while at the same time involving the business, using behavior driven development.

One thing will get you started on all projects

The software tester’s toolbox is packed with different theories of test design techniques and test competencies. This may be a bit of jungle to navigate in for a software tester. When launching new projects, it is difficult to choose where to start when you do not know all the system details yet. Despite the fact that many testers have a lot of training and certifications, it may seem difficult for each individual to find out where to start and what to do in practice when faced with a new test task.

Sara Stürup Willer has more than 10 years of experience with professional software test. During the years, she has created her own personal way of testing that enables her to start test activities without waiting days or weeks for all documents to be written and reviewed. Sara will shortly introduce this surprisingly simple way of testing and thinking about test in software projects. She will explain why it can be used within almost any software project and how this has helped her bringing more value to the firm as a software tester.
