    Pyramid of Testing through ROI

    Anton Semenchenko

    How to connect two indivisible values Test Pyramid by Mike Cohn and ROI Calculator? How to achieve the synergy for use of both tools? How to effectively use tools from pre-sales to the post-release? How to adapt solutions for needs of exact project? We'll try to answer those and many other related questions at our conversation.

    After the training attendees will be able to:
    • Consciously use Test Pyramid by Mike Cohn
    • Combine Test Pyramid and ROI Calculator
    • Adapt instruments for the project

    Discussion Agenda:
    • Test Pyramid by Mike Cohn
    • ROI Calculator
    • Efficient usage from Pre-Sales to the Post-Release
    • Adaptation
    • Examples

    How Internet of Things and Machine Learning can change automotive industry and how we can take part in this process

    Andrei Stasevich

    By the end of 2020 year up to 80% of all the vehicles will be sold having a built-in Internet connection and automobile manufacturers will earn 10 times more selling built-in online services. As Internet of Things continues to expand dramatically, transport domain is undergoing dramatic changes. We will talk about how we can make use of data that we get from vehicles and what problems may be solved with the help of machine learning algorithms.

    Design Patterns in Automated Testing

    Vadim Zubovich

    Design Patterns is a term that is known to any software developer: there are ready-to-use solutions to many typical architecture problems. Automation engineer is also a developer since he develops software that tests other software. This means that QA automation must have these solutions to typical architecture problems. Let's take a look at the patterns that deserve a close QA engineer attention, let's understand how these patterns look like and how they can simplify our life.

    Business requirements analysis during Production release

    Nikita Syskov

    It's impossible to underestimate business analysis impact on product success -- we need to know what end user need and we must provide it to them. However it's very often that we see how 'simple business enhancement' turns out to be 'full system architecture review'. The idea of this lightning talk is not to argue about the reasons but rather show some examples of these 'false easy' changes and ways of fighting them in the face of upcoming release. Requirements analysis is critical for product development success and knowing how to do it right will allow to prevent a lot of issues from happening.

    A/B testing, or how to make the right decision

    Nadezhda Shkuda

    Sooner or later, members in your team can have disputes about new design, or they can't choose more user-friendly interface, or they are not sure about specifics of consumed audience. I would like to tell you about A/B testing, what it is and how it can be used in practice, how we can prepare and setup testing process, and how we can analyze the results not straying from the right course. Also, I would share with you some real examples from my own experience. My presentation will be interesting to QA engineers who does or wants to try such type of testing, as well as managers on the project who wants always to improve their software and do not stand still.

    Heuristics, mnemonics and other Greek words in the exploratory testing of mobile apps

    Vladislav Romanenko

    Do you test mobile apps and have to make do with minimum documentation or even work without it? Are you more likely to rely on your intuition rather than on the test cases from Jurassic period? I’ll fill you in on the approach, to developing tests, based on your experience, domain knowledge, previous releases and work with similar apps. In the first part of my talk I’ll dwell on basic techniques, unveil their pros and cons, and show how I used them in mobile apps testing. The second part will be devoted to exploratory testing. How to keep on mind the essential checks? That’s where heuristics and mnemonics come to rescue. What are they? Why and how could they be used? I’ll mix the theory with examples. Come to my talk: I SLICED UP FUN! You’ll enjoy my talk if you are a test engineer experienced in exploratory testing of mobile apps.
