You’ve heard about Continuous Testing, now it’s time to get serious about it. Building code fast, with minimal defects means testing early and testing often. The old ways of testing won’t cut it in this Agile environment where your competitors are rushing to deliver better features to win your customers away. Join testing expert Alex Martins of CA Technologies and be prepared to be shifted into high gear with their practical testing advice, examples and anecdotes that will ground you in the principles, tools and approach to Continuous Testing.
Continuous Testing has been employed for some time now, but has it reached its limit in terms of effectiveness? Most companies still report that testing is still a bottleneck and not fully integrated into the DevOps cycle. The time it takes to code and maintain tests and generate test data are the primary reason that continuous testing has not been fully effective. With autonomous testing you get zero-touch test case creation and coding, lights-out test execution, and automatic impact analysis with self-healing tests. This approach requires a fundamental shift away from traditional human...

Testing is already hard, but it’s even harder when you can’t access components that are out of your control because systems are still evolving, difficult to access, difficult to scale, or difficult to configure. To solve these problems, service virtualization allows you to create, deploy, and manage simulated services for dev/test environments, all while reducing the constraints that arise from inadequate test data. In order to successfully adopt service virtualization into your organization, you need to know where to get started and how to scale. A thriving enterprise- wide deployment of...

Join us at The Workshop on Regulated Software Testing (WREST)—a free, full-day bonus session held on Friday after the conference concludes. A unique peer workshop, WREST is dedicated to improving the practice of testing regulated systems. We define regulated software as any system that is subject to an internal or external review. WREST relies on its attendees to make the workshop a success. There are no formal presentations, only experience reports with plenty of time designated for facilitated discussion. We hope to learn from each other by hearing the success and (especially!) failure...
