Workshop: Building Trust and Breaking Barriers (with LEGO!)

LEGO(R) sets are fun to build, but who has ever attempted to build a set without looking at the instructions? In this workshop, attendees will form teams and attempt to build a LEGO(R) set without instructions. Through a series of iterative exercises that provide more product details, the teams will attempt to build & test […]

Workshop: Automated Visual Testing

Functional test automation is a wonderful way to frequently and expeditiously execute regression testing. However, the test scripts that we write are limited to the few assertions we’ve considered. Many times, these assertions only cover the tip of the iceberg and account for a small fraction of what a human being would have subconsciously verified. […]

Workshop: Introduction to Performance in 2021

Performance testing and engineering practices have been continuously evolving and changing, including who, when, and how we mitigate performance risks and optimize the scalability of systems. Eventually, every tester will find themselves challenged to conduct experiments, lead a performance testing project or even operate a performance practice. Therefore, the most effective performance professionals must know […]

Workshop: Leading the Next Generation of Software Testing

It has been said “Everything rises and falls on leadership”. The world has experienced many changes over the last few decades, and organizations must respond to this constant change at much greater speed than ever before. Many companies are eliminating the role of the test manager in agile teams and creating flat organizations which combine […]

Not all performance testing strategies are implemented alike to fulfill the needs of the business. As performance test engineers, we are often tasked with challenges not […]

Workshop: Learn To Train a Bot For Testers – Introduction to AI

How do you train an AI bot to do your software testing? Integrating AI into your testing activities can be intimidating, but in reality, it is pretty easy, and it just takes some understanding and work. Learn how to directly apply AI to real-world testing problems without having a Ph.D. in computer science. Jennifer will […]

Workshop: Scaling Quality Workshop

Is your software engineering company scaling? Are you assuming that your quality and test practices will magically scale also? In 2015, Olo engineering was a small startup. In 2021, we are not a startup anymore. We did not experience hyper-growth, but it was definitely significant growth. Oh, and to further complicate things, all of our […]

Workshop: Accessibility Testing by Design

It’s often said that accessibility is solved at the design stage. In many organizations there is little to no communication between designers and testers, roles key to a successful implementation of accessibility. This lack of interactions is a missed opportunity for valuable collaboration that can ease struggles and help improve testing. This workshop focuses on […]
