    Many organizations struggle with transforming from the old style teams consisting of members with specialized silos of skills into Agile teams consisting of generalized specialists.  This results in sub-optimal Agile adoptions in Agile/Scrum environments, which is where most organizations transforming to Agile are advised to start.

    We will start with a look into the real role of QA in the organization, and where they truly add value in the production of quality code to allow the business to move forward. Piggybacking on the role of QA, we will then speak to exactly what QA needs to do to add value to the software development process, and how they integrate in the DevOps model that is a contemporary solution to an age old issue.  And, finally, we will speak to some uncomfortable truths, and draw conclusions into the skills that Agile Testers must be expected to master to allow the organization to pivot successfully into a truly Agile development group.

Sorry, no proposals found under this section.

    In the age of continuous deployments, where Googles and Facebooks of the world push newer features every now and then, without any down time to millions of users! Enterprises and Users of internal IT systems within Enterprise are still stuck with old time consuming processes that take ages to churn out new features to business. Why can’t Enterprises have this fun!


    This is a story of an Enterprise that adopted and got mature in its Agile Adoption. The sponsors could see value every sprint, but it took time to translate this value to end users. Drive to sustain agility as well as getting things out to end users quickly needed to take a great momentum.


    Experimenting with DevOps came as a natural extension to this Agile-Scrum adoption. We would like to talk about the how the idea of DevOps implementation in this Enterprise originated, the various challenges met at the initial stages, carving the road map and our journey. We would highlight the benefits that we reap out of this effort as well as share best practices from what we have learnt.

    This talk will cover the pattern of following TDD when developing using Automated Configuration Management frameworks like Chef/Puppet. Real usability of Testing is based on keeping sanctity of WHAT needs to be tested WHERE. Talk will cover the same in domain of DevOps.

    This will cover the Concpetual Mapping of Unit Testing, Integration Tests and Performance Tests in reference of development under DevOps practices.

    The common mistakes that used to happen in DevOps domain was direct mapping of Business Application TDD model. Like porting of Testing tools such as rspec, cucumber for DevOps utilities and blindly implementing to show 100% coverage whether the Tests were actually justified there or not.

    We'll be seeing such examples and the correct way to implement justified Tests for your DevOps set-up.

    For example:

    Port of test packages like RSpec (puppet-rspec, chefspec) shall be used for only which cases and how they are totally un-justified for to plainly test the Resources which are just imitations without a real node.
