Mile High Software Testing Conference
July 27 - July 28
Denver’s Mile High Testing Conference
A new way to experience learning in the software testing industry.
The Mile High Testing Conference is a new way to experience learning in a community and environment that encourages the attendees to personalize their experience throughout both days! Want to deep-dive in to topics? We’ve got half-day tutorials and workshops for that! Like to have a wider range of topics that solve industry challenges and provide practical takeaways? We’ve got a format for that! Or maybe you like the single-track format where you hear from the industry’s brightest minds on a wide variety of testing topics, we’ve got that, too!
Thomas Haver at Mile High Test:
Session: Example Mapping – The New Three Amigos
Example Mapping is a collaboration technique used by teams to help refine requirements. Every team should have a set of “ready” criteria that includes some kind of workshop between development team members to establish a shared understanding. In a time-boxed Example Mapping session, rules will summarize examples or constraints about a user story, and questions about outcomes or dependencies are documented for future refinement. The end result are requirements written as user behavior with a shared understanding among all roles on an Agile team. The audience will participate in a live Example Mapping session and learn how to implement the workshop within their own team.
Track Talk: The Automation Firehose – Be Strategic and Tactical
The widespread adoption of test automation has led to numerous challenges that range from development lifecycle integration to simple scripting strategy. Just because a scenario CAN be automated does not mean it SHOULD be automated. Teams that adopt automation often rush to automate everything they can — the automation firehose. For those scenarios that should automated, every team must adopt an implementation plan to ensure value is derived from reliable automated test execution. In this session, the audience will learn how to automate both strategically and tactically to maximize the benefits of automation. Entry criteria will be demonstrated for automation in the development lifecycle along with a set of checks to determine automation feasibility & ROI.
