The Price of Quality
We start with a different vision towards the meaning and the price of the quality. What is quality and why should we care about it? Is there an universal recipe for creating qualitative products? Who is responsible for the quality of a given product? This adventure is almost as important as searching for the Answer to The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything... In Bulgarian.
Regular Expressions and Their Place in a QA Engineer's Life
You will get introduced to regular expressions, their syntax and application in practice. Examples will be given on how to validate fields with a regular expression and how to extract data from text using patterns. In Bulgarian.
6 Common Challenges Setting Up Selenium in High Scale
Congratulations, you are tasked with setting up Selenium for a few projects so that the test automation can be optimized, scalable, predictable and cost-effective. Sounds hard? It does, because we often bump into pop-up windows, default browser settings, Selenium issues, user certificates, etc. We'll learn how to avoid these problems instead of wasting days on solving them one by one. In addition, we will learn how to scale and maintain the Selenium infrastructure - 6 common challenges which will meet and learn how to overcome. In Bulgarian.
Extracting the truth from a multitude of tests
One way to understand more about the thing you are testing is to generate thousands of tiny tests and then build a diagram from the results. In this talk, James Lyndsay will introduce you to the ways that he has used simple data and tools to test his own software. You will gain an understanding of this approach by playing with interactive demonstrations. We will talk about techniques for test generation and data visualization, and will highlight the elements of a system that you might approach in this way.
Testing in the World of Information Management
The information management solutions are specific group of projects which standart testing methods are rarely applicable for. We are going to investigate a case study with a bank application that will put the QA team in front of many challenges: no user interface, big volume of information fetched, and a high speed of processing this data needed. Even more, the calculations made and the system security are critical as we are talking about a bank product. In Bulgarian.
