Topics covered:

Robot Framework Is Not Just For GUI, by Meredith Courtney

Seven Excuses Software Testers Need to Stop Making by Kristin Jackvony
  • "Navy Seals Jocko Willink and Leif Babin popularized the concept of 'Extreme Ownership' in their book of the same name. Extreme Ownership means taking personal responsibility for everything that happens in your team, rather than pointing fingers and blaming others. This concept is applicable in all careers, not just the military! In this talk, I'll discuss seven excuses software testers need to stop making in order to start practicing Extreme Ownership".
Serverless Preview Environments to the Rescue by Joe Lust
  • "End to end testing every commit is a challenge solved with serverless preview environments. Traditionally only select environments like 'integration' and 'UAT' could be fully tested, because apps required deployment tooling. Using modern serverless cloud solutions, you can deploy and host every commit, providing immediate PR feedback on feature branches and discovering problems long before they're merged".
Shift your Load Testing Left with BrowserUp by Eric Beland
Improve Quality Culture Using Visualization by Bertold Kolics
  • "Quick tips on how to engage your team better and build better quality products faster by visualizing the CI/CD pipeline"

Thank you to all of our volunteers!

Happy Testing!
