“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Alan Kay 

If cost and resources were no issue, what changes would you like to make to practices in the Testing industry?

Technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace and users’ expectations are increasing – the customer requires a higher quality, faster, safer more mobile solution. Spurred by this greater demand for excellence, the Software Testing industry is growing year on year. We have to deliver but we also have to innovate, however we’re almost always limited by the budgets and resources the wider business is willing to allocate. It’s time for us as testers to break down the barriers and make our testing dreams a reality.

A dream is not much more than a fantasy if it is not supported by an ambition and a plan on how to achieve it. TestExpo™ 2015 focuses on the ambitions, plans and goals of the testing community in the UK for learning and improving testing practices. 

This one-day conference will be structured around a series of themes. Keynote presentations and roundtable sessions will allow all participants to join in and discuss their own experiences, and consider how to implement their own visions and dreams for the testing industry.

Themes Include:

  • Innovation in the Testing Industry
  • Internet of Things and the Future of Testing
  • Cyber Security
  • Digital Test Strategy
  • Testing in the Cloud
  • Agile Testing
  • Automation Strategy

    "Computer says no" Daydreams versus Nightmares in testing

    Gartner calls it "The Next Big Thing": autonomous decision machines taking over new tasks and enhancing humanity. They claim this smart machine era will be the most disruptive in the history of IT. It implies that the so called winter sleep of Artificial Intelligence is over. Elon Musk expresses his concerns over twitter "We must be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes” The issues for testing and quality assurance in this new era of computing are extremely challenging. How can you test a self learning system for instance? What are the risks of ignoring a robots advice?

    In this keynote, Menno van Doorn will discuss the possible future of autonomous decision machines and consequences for testing. Menno is director of Sogeti's Research Institute for the Analysis of New Technology, Think Tank of SogetiLabs. He co-authored several books, like "No more secrets" (Big Data) and other books on the Internet of Things, Social Media and the Mobile revolution. His current research project is called "computer says no".

    Retail to DETAIL – the journey from a traditional ‘Retail’ focused organisation to one that’s ‘DETAIL’ focused and embraces Digital, Ecommerce, Technology, Agile, Interactive and Lean principles in everything we do

    Biraj Nakarja, Head of QA and Testing, Camelot Global and Susan Wilkes, QA Manager, Camelot Global

    In most cases, a transition to digital will involve the creation of an interactive website and/or mobile applications, but for The National Lottery – a traditionally retail based lottery provider – what else does moving to ‘digital’ mean? Join us in understanding our testing challenges on this ‘Retail to Detail’ journey, and how the testing team needs to adapt what we do, and how we do things, to embrace our aspirations of becoming the world’s leading digital lottery.
