As the title reads, let us perform the tests for the next 20 minutes. I would love to have the participants generate test ideas proactively on the web application, which we shall test in this talk. Are you ready? It will be like a mini “Testathon” event. Else you may call it a “Testing Hackathon” or whatever suits you. The goal is to learn and participate in this fun talk. Let’s rock!

We engineers have always loved to build from scratch – and homegrown test automation frameworks are a favourite. But if we engineers love building so much, shouldn’t we rather be building more software and less frameworks? Join us for a 30-minute talk on why we believe the role of an SDET should evolve and so should the scope of software quality.

Digital transformation is a key focus for many organizations as they look to stay competitive in today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape. However, the shift towards digital technologies can often be complex and disruptive, requiring careful planning and execution. The shift left and shift right trends in DevOps have gained significant attention in recent years as organizations strive for digital transformation and a focus on quality. One aspect of this shift that is particularly important to consider is the balance between “shift left” and “shift right” in DevOps.
Shift left refers to the practice of involving testing and quality assurance earlier in the development process, while shift right emphasizes the importance of monitoring and testing in production. Effective digital transformation strategies must consider both shift left and shift right in order to deliver successful outcomes. This means ensuring that testing and quality assurance are integrated into the development process, while also monitoring and validating the product in production.
Join Manoj in this session to understand how a balanced approach to software development is crucial for optimal quality and ultimately achieving successful digital transformation.

Low code/No Code (LCNC) platforms have existed for many years, although not in the advanced and user-friendly form that we see today. Business users and non-technologist like LCNC for obvious reasons but how should the developer or technologist see LCNC? Is it a threat or opportunity for them? How about the IT service industry as a whole how will they be impacted by the growth of LCNC? As a guest speaker I plan to share my experiences, challenges and learning of working with LCNC platforms.

In this proposed talk, I would like to list the typical challenges we encounter when we are coaching High Performance teams. Since the teams are already in the highest state of maturity, its challenging for a Coach to motivate the team further and help them excel
I would also be sharing some Tools, Techniques and artefacts which would help us in the journey of Coaching High Performance Teams.
The focus will shift from application development to assembly and integration. According to Gartner’s recent research, by 2025, 70% of new apps built by enterprises would use low-code or no-code technologies, up from less than 25% in 2020. While software is developed to address business problems, internal IT teams are losing ground to business teams who can no longer wait months for a server to be provisioned when they can simply go to the cloud with a credit card. Similarly, they are experimenting with new applications on their own, sometimes without the involvement of IT. Business teams/Client can design their own applications using a low-code/no-code approach. Because of the reduced cost and lower technical barriers to entry, many businesses are prioritizing the digital transformation of daily operations and procedures using low-code/no-code tools. Professional developers may perform jobs two to three times faster with these technologies than with typical developer tools. Low-code technologies also allow business users and developers to focus on their area of expertise thereby reducing friction.

With the maturity of DevOps, and tasting of success, there wouldnt be two thoughts within the organization to extend this beyond the two groups of Dev and Ops. Though there are many terms like DevSecOps, NoOps, AiOps etc, this talk tries to cover the potential aspects of extending DevOps beyond where it stands today. Its a conceptual topic, and the talk would open up for a brainstorm around this topic.

Today’s mantra for success is all about accelerating your digital transformation. It’s a proven fact that the same cannot be achieved without a religious focus, thinking, and implementation of Agile, DevSecOps, and Developer and Ops experience & productivity through Low Code/No Code, Infra as Code, etc. Industry data confirms that Cloud is a natural platform to achieve these and a lot more at scale with a high reliability and scalability, operational excellence, performance efficiency, toward achieving faster to market, reduced TCO, improved RoI, and doing it all with no compromise on security. I look forward to sharing my thoughts about it based on my prior experience and current leadership role working with scores of enterprise customers of AWS.

You build it You run it is a modern operating model for modern applications and is considered the next evolution from DevOps. This new model brings with it another wave of massive changes across build, test, run and support product lifecycle impacting how Development and Operations interact and deliver products. Focus of this session is to delve into the why, what and how this new model works, the tradeoffs and prepare participants for the next wave of DevOps.
