Ben has incorporated mob testing into the StoryBlocks testing culture. He will focus on what he has found to be the benefits of mob testing (such as improved communication and relationships among teams & spreading product knowledge), helpful hints for making sure the sessions go well (such as being prepared ahead of times & following up and using temporary Slack channels as a tool), and his journey of how, as a new tester, he helped his organization leverage mob testing to overcome communication difficulties and improve the speed and impact of their testing efforts.
Times are tough right now. At all levels, people are struggling to find their way through the challenges of a pandemic. People are balancing home and work life in ways they never imagined. Some people don’t have the energy to think about self-care, and some don’t think they have the space or permission to. As leaders in tech, it’s our job to support and protect our people – but how do we do that when we’re struggling just as much as they are?
In this 2-hour webinar bootcamp we will explore ideas on how we develop management traits and skills. How do we separate people from products? Discuss ideas about what we do on a day-to-day basis to help our team members stay focused and happy. Discuss techniques on what to do when things are not going so well.
Quality Leadership, Testing, and Governance Tactics that Make or Break Your Progressive Delivery System
More and more companies are using Progressive Delivery to get all types of changes – new features, configuration changes, bug fixes, and experiments – into production in a safer, faster, and most importantly, a sustainable way.
Join Joel as he reviews the forces pushing change in the way products are created and delivered, and will introduce the Modern Testing Principles, going over them to understand their challenges and breakthroughs!
This talk will first define feedback, the different types of feedback, the market numbers around feedback, and why feedback is a necessary part of growth. Additionally, there are several studies to draw from that show how important receiving feedback is to people, particularly younger professionals.
Bas will explore a model of happiness to show how tools can improve your life and show you what did not work and why, as well as best practices he has learned from the process.
When testing software, it is not uncommon to hear that one hundred percent coverage is unachievable. What happens, then when we are asked to do such a thing. If the software that is being tested is used in critical infrastructure (power systems, water, medical, banking, etc.) then an escaped bug is not a trivial thing.
Since managing performance and assuring it is acceptable is not a trivial task neither just a matter of running load, the webinar will go through all of the possible routes an organization should become familiar to achieve great performance.
Executives are always looking to cut costs and increase value. Test Automation is key in continuous delivery of digital assets for customers. But does Test Automation produce an ROI? If so, what is it? How can your department positively affect the bottom-line with test automation?
At the turn of the 19th century, the industrial revolution replaced many manual jobs and that resulted in a better quality of life. At the same time, it also led to the loss of a large number of jobs in the short term. Since then there has been a recurrent fear that technological change will spawn mass unemployment. However, the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning revolution, that the world has come to terms with, will be significantly different from the Industrial Revolution.
In this talk, Liz introduces the Cynefin framework to help make sense of different types of situations and how to approach them: the obvious ones, the complicated ones which require expertise, the complex ones in which outcomes emerge, and the chaotic ones that we’re usually trying to avoid. Find out how these simple concepts can help us counter our innate human desire for predictability, enabling change and innovation; not just in software development, but in every aspect of our lives.
