Terraform Infrastructure as Code: Best Practices and Common Mistakes

Preview
Wednesday, June 9, 2021 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

Terraform is one of the most common coding platforms for managing cloud infrastructure as code. I have been using Terraform to manage infrastructure on the cloud for several years now. Additionally, I coach DevOps teams in large enterprises that implement 100% infrastructure as code. Everything in this presentation comes from experience. I'll guide you through a series of best practices including source code management, environment management, execution through pipelines, modularizing Terraform code so it can be reused across the enterprise, and much more. Additionally, I'll review...

Mastering Cross-Browser Testing with Selenium and Cypress

Preview
Wednesday, June 9, 2021 - 1:15pm to 2:15pm

Agile mandates continuous testing processes. Within Agile there are various personas trying to accomplish exactly that, however, they bring different constrains including time lines, skillsets, and testing objectives. With the growing adoption of Cypress testing framework that appeals to front-end developers, how does Cypress plays within a single pipeline together with Selenium? Do they compete or complement each other? In this session, Eran Kinsbruner, DevOps chief Evangelist, Author and Sr. Director at Perforce will uncover the main benefits and consideration for using the 2...

Testing a Data Science Model

Wednesday, June 9, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

I have heard from other senior testers around the world that they know of data science teams but no testers testing the models, how do we have enough confidence what is produced is good enough? A model is a statistical black box, how to test it so we understand its behaviours to test is properly. Main aim would be to help inspire testers to explore data science models. I’d like to share how I explored the world of data science when testing a model and how we can apply that if we find ourselves in this situation. It is an emerging area for testers and exciting. I’d like to invite you to my...

Quality Gates in Test Automation

Preview
Thursday, June 10, 2021 - 1:15pm to 2:15pm

Our organization adopted the CI/CD model for all product validation tasks just over 1 year ago with automated testing being primary step in the pipeline. We discovered that test automation eventually became a bottleneck within the pipeline due to its flakiness and constant maintenance. We determined a need to treat test automation development similar to product development. This allowed us to define multiple Quality Gates in test automation development by utilizing our own CI/CD pipeline. Now, we have tremendous confidence in our test automation and its stability in product...

Testing in Production

Thursday, June 10, 2021 - 3:15pm to 4:15pm

How do you know your feature is working perfectly in production? If something breaks in production, how will you know? Will you wait for a user to report it to you? What do you do when your staging test results do not reflect current production behavior? In order to test proactively as opposed to reactively, try testing in production! You will have an increased accuracy of test results, your tests will run faster due to the elimination of bad data, and you will have higher confidence before releases. This can be accomplished through feature flagging, canary releases, setting up a proper CI...

Unpredictable scenarios, guide for blind QA

Preview
Thursday, June 10, 2021 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm

At MANGOPAY, service quality is a strategic issue and a major asset for our products. It is therefore essential to test our products before going live. However, it is still difficult to reproduce all the possible scenarios we can have in production on our test environments. Have you ever been asked to reproduce a production behaviour without having the scenario? Have you ever spent hours trying to understand what is happening in production without being able to reproduce the same thing on your test environment? In this discussion, I will share with you how we have been able to...
