Dr Culture Shock - Or How I stopped worrying and embraced Org Culture

The org culture mantra is usually considered a silicon valley mumbo jumbo. Although many companies and teams rant about culture, very few in my opinion take it seriously. In this talk I would like to discuss the importance of Org culture and how it makes or breaks businesses and teams. I will lay out some key pointers that will help the influencers in the audience make decisions about their org or team culture. The talk will be in the context of culture in tech companies.

    In this age of a variety of cloud-based-services for virtual Mobile Test Labs, building a real-(mobile)-device lab for Test Automation is NOT a common thing – it is difficult, high maintenance, expensive! Yet, I had to do it!

    Attend this talk to understand the Why, What and How I built my own MAD-LAB (Mobile Automation Devices LAB). The discussion will include –

    • Understanding the context,
    • Why no cloud-based solution worked for me,
    • The automation strategy for Android / iOS / Web platform,
    • The tech-stack (cucumber-jvm / Appium), and,
    • The core implementation to build your own MAD-LAB! (already open-sourced)
    • How this results in Continuous Delivery (CD)
