Topic Abstractt

The author tries to bring the tester of 80s and 90 s marching towards the world of AI , ML and Analytics.The tester is all set to work with the machine , amicably

The tester is ready to meet the machine and the machine is eagerly waiting too, to meet the tester to see how it can learn more from tester.

In a recent Wall Street Journal article, Ken Goldberg, professor of engineering at UC Berkeley, addressed (subscription required) the latter question, introducing the concept of multiplicity to describe how AI will influence future workforces. The common fear that robots will take over the workforce, replacing humans altogether, is an example of singularity, or a single-entity (robots in this case) workforce. Multiplicity, on the other hand, describes a hybrid workforce comprised of a diverse group of robots and humans working together to achieve superior results compared to what either group could accomplish working alone.

This is something we’re already seeing in the real world -- not just in games of Go -- though Goldberg does cite the benefits of human-machine collaboration during recent games. He offers the more accessible and familiar example of multiplicity, as seen in AI-driven recommendations technologies that take input from users (often in the form of clicks, preferences, etc.), then compare that input to statistical models in order to predict and present the content, products or other results a user is most likely to gravitate toward (think Google searches, Amazon recommendations and Facebook content).

This example demonstrates what it looks like for humans to give information to machines, fueling their ability to analyze and take action on information on their own. In most -- if not all -- cases, AI solutions will continue to rely on humans for their initial data sets, but as artificial intelligence applications evolve and become better at gathering and growing their own data, they will become less dependent on humans for ongoing knowledge transfers. But this doesn’t mean they will no longer need humans.

Instead, what’s likely to happen is the emergence of a more symbiotic form of multiplicity, where both robots and machines are dependent on and beneficial to each other to produce the best possible end results. This model acknowledges the fact that there are things that humans simply know and do better than robots. And vice versa.

Topic Abstract

The talk introduces recent advancements in the core technologies e.g, client side scripting, micro services, protocols, information exchange formats and their role in the coming years (near future). The talk would also take these as basis and some of the pointers raised by AI and ML’s involvement to discuss further evolution of some of the said technologies. The talk indicates how bell bottoms are back in technology areas

The talk is not about general impact of AI. The talk also avoids discussion on fear of AI singularity & AI apocalypse (I leave that to AI experts and bigshots).

This talk is more pragmatic and grounded in the context of software industry. It focuses on impact of the ongoing technology changes on software development and role of developers & testers.

Topic Abstract

Everyone likes their home to be secure and keep thieves or burglars away. Nowadays, the web has become our home whether you like it or not and it's amazing. However, we have terribly failed to make it secure as we do for our physical home. There are data breaches every day in the news and such news is only increasing day by day. In the Software Industry, we have the demand for more ethical hackers and less supply. If we have to fight the black-hat world, then we got to learn better and practice better with a thinking mindset shift. The bigger question is, "Are we ready to fight?"

In this Keynote, Santhosh Tuppad is going to focus on how black-hat hackers are awesome at what they do and how most of the white-hat hackers in the industry lack the bigger picture of what's going on in the black-hat world in terms of mindset, thought process and thinking patterns. In short, most of us may be barking up the wrong tree instead of doing the things which keep our software secure from the audience such as malicious hackers, blackhat hackers, or anyone with the evil mindset of exploiting the software vulnerabilities.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Learn about the things we are missing in the Software Industry in terms of Security
  2. How can we start bridging the gap in terms of mindset between blackhat and whitehat hackers?
  3. What every software tester can do to contribute to the security of their application being developed?
  4. Kickstarting some of the simple attacks and then know about the learning path to take it higher.
  5. Fun and Excitement to start the journey in Ethical Hacking World or Security Testing.

Topic Abstract

Much of our day to day technology is powered by AI - It is the study of agents those who perceive the world around them, form plans, and make decisions to achieve their goals. Machine Learning is a sub field under AI. Its goal is to enable computers to learn on their own, without explicitly programming for each and everything. In this talk, we will specifically discuss “What does it mean to a testing community, how would it change the way we are testing?”. We will demonstrate our approach on AI/ML based Quality Assurance in TechM in the talk which is design based compliance with following steps – Discover > Learn > Sense > Respond cycle

Topic Abstract

Everyone likes projects to be successfully delivered and no one wants to waste money, time or effort. Though the projects start with good intentions, we have seen time and again how people fall into traps and then it is too late for a turnaround. It is a sad reality that you can easily find patterns in how projects fail. While everyone talks about successful projects, let us introspect and analyze the patterns of unsuccessful projects. What causes huge embarrassment to the company and clients, what eats up your budget - let us discuss those in the interactive session.

Key takeaways:
- Know common problems for successful project delivery
- Learn how to avoid catastrophes in projects
- Succeed in upcoming projects

Topic Abstract

Microservices-based architecture introduces new challenges in test planning and test execution, compared to monolithic applications. In this session we will highlight a few key test strategies and test scenarios that microservices architecture calls for, in terms of testing individual services and testing the complete integration. We will further differentiate test scenarios with respect to a) API-driven microservices, b) Service-mesh architecture, and c) Reactive or Event-driven microservices. To help attendees gain a more practical understanding, we will demonstrate three test cases, and tools available for developing these test cases:
i. Testing API authentication using JWT tokens
ii. Event-hose for reactive microservices
iii. Testing Reliability of Service Mesh using Istio and distributed chaos

Topic Abstract

Current software testing world is in a flux. There are new things coming in and old things changing (all at the same time). Software Testing also seems to be going through an identity crisis. When some of us decide to embark on new frontiers like Test Automation we seldom realise that there are a lot of moving pieces to consider.

“Where do I start? Which domain do I choose? What tools should I learn? What language should I pick? …”

Join me for my talk and let’s take this journey of self-discovery together.

Topic Abstract

With the increased adoption of DevOps there is significant change in the overall testing approach and especially performance testing, traditionally executed last in a waterfall model is now required for every iterative cycle of development. In this presentation we want to want to uncover how performance engineering practices need to cope up with the increased demand by adopting right set of tools, processes, resources and technologies for enabling continuous performance delivery.

Topic Abstract


One of the key imperatives of successful new product development is concept validation at an early stage. This can not only avoid escalation of commitment in an undesirable direction but also off useful insight on tweaking the product early on. The presentation talks about a host of practices on how quick and dirty prototyping and validation along with customer can be achieved in both B2B and B2C scenarios. Some of these methods are also non-tech in nature and can be performed in rather ordinary situations.

Topic Abstract

We all know that agile has become one of the most widely accepted and implemented software development methodologies However, still today we hear stories of attempts to implement agile practices fail within just a few months.

The failures can be attributed to many reasons, but one reason that has attracted attention is Work Silos. It has fast become a very common stumbling block for Agile teams.

Having Silos in teams is like a virus which attacks and disrupts the major organ of Agile systems i.e Communication. Agile owes its success to smooth communication. Its like a backbone for the Agile systems that has provided great success for teams around the world. Smooth communication has dissolved geographical boundaries and has contributed the most in its success. Having Silos in teams disrupts the communication and often leads to Agile failures.

In my presentation, I will focus on how Silos enter the Agile systems. I will talk on following factors:

  1. Creating teams by functional expertise like DevOps Engineers, Developers, SRE teams, QAs etc
  2. Seperation of duties within teams, like product owners define product, then it is turn of developers and then QA comes in picture. In the end, DevOps performs its roles
  3. Defined roles bring conflict as they just focus on throwing task to other team over the wall.
  4. Async communication between teams often results in taking no responsibility for followups. We depend on notifications from tools and hence develop our own silos.

With this, I will now explain solutions for each of the problems explained above , with focus on how to break existing silos within teams and how to prevent silos to enter teams in future. I will explain how to achieve:

  1. Smooth communication
  2. Team collaboration
  3. Eroding barriers
  4. Product integrations

Subheadline: Despite our best efforts, Silos slowly sneak in the agile teams and establish themselves. If not taken care at early stage, they may throw Agile process off the track and disrupt the entire process. To have Agile deliver value, we ensure teams do not develop Silos. Check should be kept from the start. Preventive actions should be taken on the first hints of silos getting inside Agile.

Key Learnings:
a) How to ensure Silos can be stopped entering the Agile Team
b) How to ensure defined roles work without having their own Silos

Topic Abstract

For many years, the focus of test automation was on test execution and functional testing. However now, the objective of automation has changed as there is focus on better coverage and effective usage of test cases. And one of the solution’s to achieve this is by moving to End to End Business Journey Automation and Automating the Entire Lifecycle (i.e., Test Design Automation to Test Execution Automation and Test Reporting Automation).

For Design Automation, we have adopted CTDA (Cognitive Test Design and Analysis) which takes the base of Model-based testing (MBT). CTDA makes the process of Test Case writing as Cognitive Exercise wherein the Subject Matter Experts create the model in the tool (guided by the Common Framework) and then the models then undergo through cognitive analysis wherein the various possible flows and test coverage path are analyzed and the best suited model-test coverage path is selected to automatically generate the test cases

The premises of CTDA is creating models and flows just like Micro-services and Lego Blocks which can then be plugged to generate the End to End Business Journeys. It promotes an excellent Collaboration between technical and non-technical teams and is highly responsive to the changes and automatically ripples through the entire suite of test cases in cases of fluid design meeting the challenges raised by Dynamic Digital World

CTDA solution is smart, cognitive solution that enables self-running and self-adaptive to different test platforms

Topic Abstract

Testing in DevOps is an approach to software development that places a priority on ensuring code is tested at all stages of the software development life-cycle.This approach seeks to test code on regular basis to achieve near 100% code coverage. Testing in DevOps consistently makes "Testing" a priority thus shifting automated continuous testing to the beginning of each project or release and continuing it throughout the entire software development life cycle. Continuous Testing is a process in software engineering aiming at providing early feedback to developers which helps minimizing defects or issues faced by end user. It targets the best practices in software delivery: frequent integration, constant readiness, short and frequent build feedback, automated testing and so on. A full blown Continuous test process will build, test, analyze and possibly deploy an application. The team members integrate their work frequently, usually each person integrates at least daily - leading to multiple integrations per day. Each integration is verified by an automated build (including test) to detect integration errors as quickly as possible then followed by system and performance testing to detect defects/integration issues as quickly as possible.

For Continuous Testing to succeed, it requires an automated end-to-end testing solution that integrates into the existing development process, eliminating errors and facilitating true continuity throughout the development life-cycle.

As the RPA market continues to grow at CAGR of 41% to reach a $1.0 BN market by 2020, the adoption is fuelled by promise of faster ROI subject to applicability and deployment policies of RPA in each organization. The RPA 4.0 brings in lot of maturity regarding the process and platform Automation along with Self-healing/self-learning capabilities which opens plethora of opportunities not just in Business process automation side but also, on the Software Automation. Although, we have many functional automation solutions and frameworks that supports automation of various platforms like web, mobile, ERP, API and legacy applications, we don’t have capability to address process/platform supporting the Automation flow and services/test data automation along with it. Also, due to disparate technologies and platforms in large enterprises, customer is forced to choose different automation solutions native to different platforms which has increased the cost of Automation and delayed ROI. As a result, customers are thinking about Tool harmonization using single Automation solution across platforms vs multiple technologies. From our experience, the RPA has demonstrated superior execution capabilities based on the OCR capability (Object character Recognition) and delivered better results when compared to existing Automation solutions like Selenium, UFT and Ranorex. Also, we have implemented RPA across technologies/platforms in the E2E business scenario delivering results exceeding expectation. Hence, RPA has evolved to be a next generation Automation solution delivering the promise of Tool harmonization benefits which is long awaited. Due to current Digital Transformation needs, it is important to drive both shift-left and shift-right Test Automation for coverage and reach. Since most bots are non-intrusive, provides better support for shift-right testing in production which is not possible with tradition Automation tools. The paper talks about the Point of view in Automation Approach using RPA in Software Testing both for shift-left and shift-right use cases involving platforms (ERP, Enterprise Apps, Web Apps, Legacy Apps) and Enterprise Automation involving End-End business scenarios cutting across platforms. Besides, will discuss on Hybrid-Automation approach using bots and Traditional Automation tools in a single DevOps pipeline orchestrating the E2E Automation supporting Continuous Testing approach.

Topic Abstract

Makeover story
This presentation addresses the makeover story from the perspective of Eclipse OpenJ9 at AdoptOpenJDK , particularly: - i) challenges involved with the in-house (third-party tools) tooling & testing, such as
a. Tests spread across multiple repositories
b. Adding tests in CSV’s in specific format, located in a specific repository
c. Changing wrappers and variables located in a different repository
d. Maintaining multiple versions of tests
e. Building local sandbox for tests & wrappers, testing them and then commit the changes in repository.
Do they look challenging, time consuming and a bit of manual in nature? Many more challenges to be discussed, same will be explained in detail during the presentation.

iI) how OpenJ9 opensource testing was enhanced to make it more adaptable towards the open-source third-party tools and products?
Our presentation will shed light on how these enhancements were achieved using git, docker and Jenkins.

iii) how the test enhancements were achieved with reduced cost and complexity.
We will present on how these enhancements were done using our opensource Jenkins test framework. While the open testing story is still evolving, the initial benefits of the much-needed makeover far outweigh the costs and serve as an example to inspire improvements and innovation for those facing similar challenges.

Topic Abstract

With IoT platforms picking up, it’s not only computers that connects each other but also the “Things” that connect up. IoT playing a pivotal role for taking the automation to the next level in multiple domains like Banking (Contact less payments), Automobile (Connected cars), Manufacturing (factories), healthcare(Personal Healthcare) etc. The volume expectations of these on the systems are logarithmically exponential as high as 4000 requests per second! Most of these systems are green field implementations that include technologies like Cloud, Mobile, Microservices, sensors etc. posing questions on the scalability and performance of these platforms. This paper talks about need for performance testing of Connected Things platforms, the tools, process and best practices to evaluate the performance accurately.

Topic Abstract

What does TDD have anything to do with Software Training? For more than three years, we at Vivasa have been applying the concepts from TDD to reinvent technology training.

Software Training in the current times is ineffective. There is a huge gap in what is expected from training programs and what these programs deliver.

As we explored the method of TDD deeply, we found that its rigorousness is similar to that of the Scientific method. Using this method of stating the hypothesis, making observations and measuring the same, we were able to impart hands-on skills in the training participants.

I would like to review in this session what we learned from TDD that helped my team experience learning in a very different way.

We shall review this discovery that is different from technology tutorials, online videos, coding challenges that fill the technology education space but are not yet able to fill the gap we see in technical skills in our tech community.

Effective Problem Solving for Leaders and Managers - 1 Day Workshop by Ajay Balamurugadas

17th July, 2019
