“Leverage automation testing with design patterns” – Paul Bodean
Lately, automation testing has a significant importance on improving the quality standards of any product. We all know about its benefits but what about the challenges? What we propose before starting to develop any automation is to take some time on analyzing different design patterns which could be used. Its application on our company brings a lot of values like fast testing, reduced resources allocation leading to low-cost testing effort, reusable components through different validation layers or projects, so we even intend to grow the impact of design patterns on our automation activities at its maximum potential.
With this presentation we are trying to show off the design patterns benefits in software testing and how to use them to reduce false failure ratio and increase the test cases robustness. There will be covered multiple patterns with pros, cons and concrete usage examples, so we can list in the end our top five design patterns based on our experiences. We will start with Façade, continue with the popular Page Object Pattern, then Factory, then Singleton and in the end the Observer pattern.
“10 Lessons I learned from my developers” – Corina Pip
As an automation focused tester, i have always worked in a team where my developers were within reach. I could ask them questions or they would willingly offer some advice that would help me write efficient code, and become better at understanding how the software works. In this talk i would like to share the most important lessons i learned from working with them, to show how beneficial learning from developers is, and how working closely with them can help you easily solve issues by applying their way of thinking.
