Have ever wondered how to test your test cases? Do you wonder if your test coverage report is giving the correct numbers?

If you’re concerned about the quality of your test data and test cases, then this is the subject for you.

Mutation test is the way to evaluate your test data quality and the test cases. Get into this session to get introduced to the concept of Mutation testing and to see some cool demos.

    Hi @Rejikrishnan, @Vivek,

    • Why do you think we need to test our test cases? Some context on that is important
    • Also - are you talking about testing the test cases, or testing the automated tests (if that logic is correct)?

      Hi Anand,

      Thanks for your review comments. Please find below our inline response. 

      Why do you think we need to test our test cases? Some context on that is important?

      Presence of tests doesn't guarantee the absence of bugs, we have seen multiple cases where bugs were present even after decent code coverage.

      Also - are you talking about testing the test cases, or testing the automated tests (if that logic is correct)?

      In this talk, we would like to share our learnings on Mutation testing, a way to assess the quality of tests

        Hi Rejikrishnan,

        Good topic and a important one in my opinion. Can this is be a little more than a intro talk. The Calculator example might just be too simplistic while I agree this is needed for a start; a concrete real example to drive the point to improve the quality of the test case and test coverage will be better

          Thanks for your feedback, Ravi :)

          We are working on a slightly complex real-life use case to demo during the event.  Will update slides once done.

    90 Mins

    With the arrival of distributed applications that run on Blockchain, it is essential to rethink some of the basic aspects of DevOps. Few things that we take for granted in DevOps area are either irrelevant, impossible or too costly for blockchain applications. Join us to explore the changes that the blockchain apps bring to the DevOps arena, using a hands-on demo of a sample blockchain app.

    Have you ever wondered about the meaning of 'Happiness at Work'? Does everyone define them the same way? If not, how can an executive work towards improving the happiness of his employees? If you have these questions, this session is for you.

    With the increase in population that separates ‘work’ from ‘life’, as if work is the absence of life, it becomes increasingly important to study about what happiness means to people at work so that they can be made to feel alive in their offices too.

    This session is aimed at introducing two interesting research studies that aimed to do just that. Also, this session helps people understand if Business Agility keeps us happy in the true sense.

    The two studies that this session will discuss are as follows:

    1. Richard M. Ryan et al’s Self Determination Theory – led to a book Drive by Dan Pink
    2. Mihaly’s Measurement of Flow in Everyday’s life – led to book Flow by Mihaly himself

    This session does not just explain these two research works but also will find the commonalities between these and will engage the audience with discussions using scenario-based questions, thereby bringing out personal examples that they can relate to.
