Track 3: QA Management

Derk-Jan de Grood, who works for Valori as senior test manager and agile transition coach, will open this track with a presentation entitled Grip on your Test maturity using the Ambition chart. Agile test teams access their effectiveness every sprint. The power of retrospectives is that they, when done well, focus on improving in small achievable steps. This ensures that progress is being made and is more than just a far away dream. In this presentation he will explain how to make and use an ambition chart and he will explain situations in which it can be beneficial and share some examples of focus areas.

Niv Segev will be in charge of the second presentation. He will discuss and share from his own experience as testing manager at Telefonica digital, how they were able to test a telco app affecting hundreds of millions around the world, serving multiple distributed geo's (influenced by locale settings, culture & 3rd party infrastructure), neverending platforms - web, desktop, ios, android WP taking into account all relevant hardware models and different OS versions - all of that with 14 QA engineers.

Avi Babaniwill be the third speaker of this track, and he will talk about the Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) – a hardware and firmware technology for remote out-of-band management of personal computers, in order to monitor, maintain, update, upgrade, and repair them. For many years, testers working on AMT were given their own CPU board which they used in testing. The board was sitting on their personal lab bench and engineers got used to have their “own” hardware. Since these development boards cost a lot of money, we were looking for ways to share the HW between engineers.

And last, Viviane Lyrio e Higgor Valença will explain their experience about the user experience as indicator for assessing performance risks. Due to the constant pressure to release a feature as soon as possible, many tests are deprioritized because the feature are considered simple. However, these features can have non-functional requirements that can affect the user impression of the system. This paper proposes an approach to performance test that uses user experience (UX) as an indicator of what should be prioritized.

Track 4: Test Automation

Xabier Arbulu will start the track with an explanation about the benefits of system architecture testing. As the complexity of different embedded systems is increasing rapidly the last years, software development processes and the respective testing and quality assurance tasks must follow the same direction in order to release a good product. To achieve this purpose the product requirements and traceability should follow a good system and planning. This paper will explain the advantages of starting System and Software architectural design testing and the requirements the engineering groups need to fulfil in order to face this challenge properly.

The Serbian Miloje Zečević & Dragan Obradović will be in charge of the second presentation, about test system for vehicle diagnostic scanner. Vehicle communication is constantly growing ever since first electronic control units (ECUs) where introduced in the automotive industry. Automotive communication protocols are changing rapidly so their implementation testing in diagnostic equipment must provide reliable results with very demanding time-to-market requirements.

Also from Serbia, we will have Milica Drobac, who will start her presentation with an important statement: Test Automation is not "just" writing a scripts. To be able to create approach and successfully introduce test automation on projects, we must perceive it from different aspects. There is no general approach for all projects, it depends of more factors. However, when we are starting to learn test automation, we are learning how to use some specific tool and to how to write scripts. Test automation is much more than this. After we collect all inputs that will run our testing activities on project, we can create approach and plan activities.

And last, the Russian Mikhail Treskin will talk about the computer vision and deep learning workloads from scratch. This presentation is on the problem of measuring performance of implementations of CV and DL algorithms. He will share his vision of and his experience with automatic performance testing of CV and DL workloads, especially with respect to handling test data.

Accessibility Testing Methodology in early stages of software development life cycle

Nowadays in the world, we are facing the era of digital inclusion and the accessibility of software has become a global concern, since this environment plays a key role in the daily lives of people with disabilities. The technology facilitates the lives of these people, enabling them to create new forms of relationships and fulfilling activities before unavailable. For those reasons, this work aims to develop a methodology for accessibility testing to inspect all the phases of the project, from its conception, when the test plan is done, until delivery, after analyzing the tests results, anticipating the errors, generating less rework, reducing project costs, giving more importance to accessibility and increasing the inclusion of people with disabilities..

Virgina Chalegre will deal with this trouble during her Special Lecture. Don't miss it! Register today with a 15% early bird discount.

Discover the tutorials

The first tutorial will provide an approach about autonomous teal-time software & systems testing. Thomas Fehlman will explain how for the Internet of Things (IoT), for safety in Automotive, or for data protection, to be legally compliant requires testing the impact of any actions before allowing them to occur. Here, system boundaries change at runtime. When adding a new, previously unknown device to the IoT orchestra, or when an autonomous car meets another, or with truck platooning, the original base system expands and needs being tested before it can do decisions with the potential of affecting harm to humans.

Sebastian Goetzinger will be in charge of the second tutorial-workshop, Code Coverage on μ-Controller.  Measuring Code Coverage on embedded targets, more specifically targets with missing file systems (like certain microcontrollers), often leads to a real challenge for software developers, especially when it comes down to coverage data extraction. In the Workshop «Code Coverage on μ-Controller» it is shown on the example of Code Coverage Analyser Testwell CTC++, Arduino Uno and a common laptop, how to extract data in order to convert it to the corresponding reports.
