The Human Factor of Testing

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 10:00am to 11:00am

What does a crash in your app mean if it just happens to one person? Not a lot, usually! But what does it mean if that app is their only way to communicate with the outside world? Or--what does even a minor defect in your app mean when it’s supposed to be safeguarding the health of your community? It can degrade your user's trust and make them less likely to use your app. There are many defects that are easy to categorize as low priority but how does the context of the app change your reaction to defects? This is the human factor of testing—the way that our users and their use cases...

Flow Model vs Page Object Pattern

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 3:45pm to 4:45pm

The Page Object Pattern is widely known and used amongst Test Automation Engineers. It allows engineers to model the application for their tests, reusing certain elements, making the test solution more structured and hence decreasing maintenance cost and the learning curve of test automation. Working at large fintech and other companies, Peter got to realize: for some, Page Object is not intuitive. From a tester's point of view it could be improved. Moreover, it breaks the Single Responsibility principle, which has been one of its most criticized flaw. That's why the Flow Model...
