Project Quality Day 2017
Join us on Wednesday 25th October for the Project Quality Day at Eclipse Con Europe! Over the course of the day, we’ll hear from 7 different speakers about a great balance of topics relating to different aspects of testing. This year, we have talks about testing in Eclipse contexts, good practices for quality in fast-paced delivery contexts, and examples of tooling and methods for functional software testing.
As Program Chair, I’m obviously looking forward to all the talks – and I’m incredibly pleased with the program as a whole. Nevertheless, I always like to pick out a couple of personal highlights that I’m particularly interested in hearing. This time round, our early bird pick is one of the talks that I’m especially looking forward to: Mutate and Test your Tests. For me, it will be the first chance to hear about mutation testing and I hope to learn what it can help teams achieve and how / when / where it can be meaningfully used. I’m a great advocate for ensuring that our automated tests are actually delivering us worthwhile information and mutation testing sounds like an interesting way of checking this.
My other highlight(s) are the two talks on the continuous aspects of testing and delivery: Tools and Methodology of Continuous Testing and Pipelining Quality. It is critical to get fast and useful feedback about quality in any process – even more so when we start thinking about continuous delivery. I’m interested to hear what techniques, processes and tools the two speakers are using to achieve this.
Of course, I’m excited to hear from the other speakers too! We have talks on RedDeer and on Jubula, tips and tricks for Testing Eclipse Plugins, and we’ll close out the day with a talk called Software is made out of people.
You can register for the full EclipseCon Europe Conference or just the Project Quality Day.
The Project Quality Day (only) ticket lets you participate in all Quality Day talks as well as the main keynote – and the breaks, lunch and party in the evening.
The Project Quality Day is made possible thanks to our sponsors and supporters. This year, we are pleased to have BREDEX GmbH, SQS and Bachmann as Exhibitors. Baloise are joining us as Sponsors, and Testbirds, SauceLabs and Verit are Supporters of the day. Women Testers and ASQF are once again media partners.
