Test Automation at the Speed of Agile: Making It Work Every Build
Join Danny McKeown, Paychex’s lead test enterprise automation architect, to see how a small tools group supports nearly one-hundred agile teams as they move toward achieving continuous delivery. Take part in the conversation to understand how Paychex is progressing in the third year of its agile transformation. Danny describes how this IT-wide initiative has impacted how the tools group supports so many teams and changed its own practices to provide more timely support. With the goal of increasing velocity, a solid automation strategy has become a powerful enabler. Danny describes how Paychex assesses progress with a maturity lens. Their always-evolving automation framework serves web and mobile team requirements. He shares an HTML5 mini-case study, describing how adopting responsive web changed practices. Embedding quality in multiple daily builds has not come without its challenges, and Danny describes the lessons learned and their next steps. This interactive session will encourage participants to share their experiences as well—so come ready!
