Open Quality Conference: Cypress

One of the trends that I've been seeing lately is the rise of developer friendly testing tools. Nowadays, as we move to a DevOps way of working, the roles between developers and testers are becoming blurry in some areas and testing tools such as Cypress helps teams in distributing the responsibility of who writes the automated tests. In this session, I'll talk about what Cypress can offer, the types of testing activities it can cover and how it's bridging the gap between developers and testers.

QA Teams During & Post-Covid, A BCS / QA in London Event

QA Teams During & Post-Covid

As software testers, we have had to navigate through unprecedented times. Covid-19 has not only affected individuals and families, but has caused huge uncertainty within the economy.

Companies are now facing decisions on how projects goals can still be achieved. Maintaining and increasing quality is now front and centre. We are also in a unique time as people seize opportunities to change ways of working.

Join us for a BCS / QA in London event as we discuss what effect this has had for teams involved in software testing during lockdown and what it means for us and the market going forward.

Testing Times, Testing Topics: Flipping the script on manual testing...

The testing community is up in arms about "manual" testing; “What is it? Why do we use the term? Does the term do justice to the practice? Why don’t we automate everything? Why don’t we say manual cooking?!?”

Is the misunderstanding of the practice all that bad? Is it a dying art that needs to be replaced by automation? Or is it just one of the many different test techniques and tools that make up a testers armoury?

In the first of the "Testing Times, Testing Topics" interactive roundtable series, our crack squad of testing experts will discuss this tricky topic and put forward their ideas.

Modern Web Testing with Cypress

The web has evolved. Finally, testing has too. This is what you see when you visit Cypress' landing page. In this talk, I would like to share what Cypress is, what its different features are and how it's bridging the gap between developers and testers.

Open Quality Conference: Web Accessibility Workshop

Have you ever thought about how people with disabilities use the web? How about the website that you are testing? Are you testing for accessibility? As we are now in the digital era where lots of information can be accessed via the web, we need to make sure that the websites we use are inclusive especially for people with disabilities. In this workshop, we'll discuss what is accessibility and why do we need to test for accessibility. We'll also look at some of the accessibility testing types you can perform and also look at what testing tools are out there to support our testing. This workshop will be jam packed with activities that will help you get started with accessibility testing and will include some live coding too as we try to get hands on with using Cypress and Cypress-Axe to catch basic accessibility issues.

Testing Ask Me Anything: Automation

As we move towards DevOps ways of working, a key aspect to make it work is to have a solid test automation practice in place. There are so many models out there which can help us define what tests we need to automate on which level. However, if you are new to automation, you might get overwhelmed with the abundance of testing tools out there to choose from. In this session, I will share my experience with test automation and answer any burning questions you might have!
