Santhosh Tuppad, Software Testing Guru
Most of us always have this thought in our thinking that security testing / ethical hacking is always different from “Testing”. Well, to me it has never been different as my perspective has been about testing the software for Functional, UI / UX, Usability, Security, Front-end performance, Automating where it adds value as one for two decades now. You give me a computer to test, and I won’t have a narrow vision ONLY, but a variety of visions when I look at and use the software. In this talk, I shall demonstrate and we all will test our test ideas across a variety of things. Are you ready? Let’s make testing effective and fun with diversified skill sets within an organization.

Debashis Banerjee, Senior Director, Walmart, India
Every cross functional Agile Team has a set of specialists who pitch in at various time to ensure a backlog is ready to be customer shippable sprint by sprint. These could be development specialists, test specialists, documentation specialists, operations specialists, business analysts and other specializations. As in mathematics the ratio of each of these is critical to the success of any sprint as their skills lend expertise and learning to others. In this session we explore if the number of devlopment specialist to test specialist within a cross functional agile team has a golden ratio? In this experience report what will be covered is learnings from scenarios where there is no test specialist in the team to a ratio where number of test specialists are more than development specialists. What will be covered are examples of sample ratios and the good and the bad of these ratios. The implications of getting this ratio are discussed not just from product development, people and stage of product. In the end the session should help product owners, scrum masters and scrum team members get a insight into this crucial element of any agile project.
Kiran Rayachoti, Vice President Engineering, Publicis Sapient
This talk is about the latest technologies like ChatGPT and how it can be leveraged to its maximum potential to enhance testing either in manual or automation. It also talks about how ChatGPT kind of technology impacts testing and is it really worth to explore this way of testing? This will give an insights and perspective on the testing trends with the introduction of the latest next gen technologies.

Vinita Jacob, Associate, Director-SRE, Verizon India
Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is an important approach for organizations looking to optimize the performance of their systems and applications to deliver reliable, scalable and secure solutions to the users. Moving towards an SRE model involves several critical stages and evaluations that could vary for each organization based on their distinctive landscape of needs, current systems, applications and processes. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution. While organizations invest a significant amount of time to assess the current state of their systems, establish SRE goals and implement best practices, the most crucial component of the transformation journey is to rally the organization towards embracing the SRE mindset. This involves a fundamental shift in the perspective towards operations and infrastructure, by approaching them as software engineering challenges and dismantling organizational silos with a shared ownership model. A ‘Reliabilitymindset’ should bemodeled beyond SRE.
Mohammad Anwer, IT Engineering Enterprise DevOps Manager, Accenture
DevSecOps integrates security into the software development lifecycle, ensuring that security is not an afterthought, but a crucial part of the development process. This leads to reduced risk, improved compliance, and faster time-to-market. In my talk, I’ll cover the benefits of DevSecOps for organizations, including increased collaboration between development, security, and operations teams, better visibility into security vulnerabilities, and more efficient security testing. I’ll also discuss building a business case for DevSecOps adoption, including ROI and success factors to justify the investment in this approach.

In today’s fast-paced world of digital innovation, businesses often face the challenge of maintaining speed and scalability while ensuring agility in application delivery. Traditional software development methods often require specialized coding skills and lengthy development cycles, limiting organizations’ creative potential for business gains. However, Low Code/No Code Tooling has revolutionized the landscape, empowering developer communities of all types to build complex applications and automate workflows even without extensive coding knowledge. During my presentation, I will provide an overview of the latest industry trends and insights surrounding Low Code/No Code processes and tooling. Additionally, I will highlight key AWS cloud services such as AWS Amplify Studio, Amazon AppFlow, AWS Glue Studio, Amazon CodeWhisperer, etc., that have gained a significant traction among global organizations of all sizes. These services, powered by AI/ML, offer robust platforms and valuable insights to enhance developer productivity and experience while leading to unparalleled customer satisfaction.
