Testing Showcase North: Agile and Automated Testing 15 February 2018, Manchester
This event is co-located with DevOps Showcase and Agile Showcase. Delegates may attend any sessions from across the three conferences.

Digital strategies and their supporting infrastructures are being implemented with increasing rapidity; new frameworks and technologies such as Agile, DevOps, IoT, Robotics, SMACT (Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud and IoT) are proliferating, and consequently, the requirements for testing and quality assurance are changing. Now the UK Government is launching a new Digital Strategy, aiming to build on the UK’s success in digital innovation and consolidate its position as a global tech hub. As ever, testing is vital to ensure new technologies, infrastructures and applications work as they should.

The need for improvement, training and keeping abreast of the latest trends are as continuous as the testing process, and this conference gives testing professionals the opportunity to hear, share and learn from their peers as well as from experts who are passionate about testing.

Joint morning session with Agile Showcase & DevOps

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.
