Vermont Code Camp 2018
Vermont Code Camp 2018 is now live! It’s an excellent opportunity to network and learn all about some of the latest tech trends. I attended the previous two years and it’s a fantastic community-driven event, highly recommended if you’re in the area.
This year I’ve submitted my own session proposal:
Automated Quality Assurance: From Apprentice to Master
A look into the world of Automated Quality Assurance - what it is, how to achieve it, and pitfalls to avoid. This presentation has something to offer anyone from those curious about AQA to those already in the field. We’ll start by distinguishing between Manual QA (Quality Advocates) and Automated QA (Quality Assurance), followed by how to get started in AQA and how to structure AQA in your organization (Don't Automate the Mess!). Next we dig a little deeper and talk test case management (Scrum is not a Silver Bullet), structuring your codebase for maintainability, and AQA paradigms (Gherkin/Cucumber). Third, we touch on a few common pitfalls of AQA a mature AQA pipeline (Watchman problem) and how to avoid them. Finally, we’ll walk through the various types of AQA testing (Integration, Front-end, Performance) and how to tackle them with AQA.
Here’s hoping it gets accepted, and I’ll see you there!
