Testing Showcase Dublin: Testing in the 4th Industrial Revolution, 24 May 2017, Dublin

This event is co-located with DevOps Showcase and Agile Showcase. Delegates may attend any sessions from across the three conferences.

Testing Showcase Dublin, 24 May 2017, builds on the success of last year’s Testing Showcase in Dublin and other Testing conferences organised and co-hosted by UNICOM, including “TestExpo” and “Next Generation Testing” which have been running in London for a number of years.

The theme for 2017 is “Testing in the 4th Industrial Revolution”.  The Word Economic Forum has declared that we are entering the 4th Industrial Revolution, as access to real time data and the focus on all things digital and instantaneous impact every area of life.  Testers have always been at the coal face of ensuring that “stuff works as it should”.   Is there anything different in the actual testing of new digital products, new interfaces with clients which must always provide the optimum user experience?  How are testers coping?  What are the stories coming in?  What is working well and what can be done better?

Joint morning session with Agile Showcase & DevOps and Microservices 
Agile, Testing and DevOps: Are they a Separate conversation or a progression of capability? 

DevOps, Testing and Agile have shared environments that facilitate working together.  These three methods are more than simply adopting new tools and processes and the synergy involves building a development and a stable Continuous Integration (CI) infrastructure, as well as an automated pipeline that moves deliverables from development to production.  They can work together and the entire build process should be transparent, and it should enable and support development and operations.  This transformation depends on: significant changes in culture; roles and responsibilities; team structure; tools and processes.

The Round Table session is the last of the joint morning session with the other two co-located events. This session is for 45 minutes of which there will be around ten minutes for a general summing up at the end. The speaker at each table will have a set theme and delegates join any table that they are interested in. They are given all the topics with their joining instructions and again at the time of registration and so make their choice on the topics that they want to attend. This is a discussion group and so no presentation slides are necessary, but please submit a topic if you would like to chair a discussion on a topic related to Testing, Agile and DevOps.
