However, a number of innovative ideas and concepts are emerging to better support industrial-strength testing for big projects. Hans Buwalda shares his experiences and presents strategies for organizing and managing testing on large projects. Learn how to design tests specifically for automation, including how to incorporate keyword testing and other techniques. Learn what roles virtualization and the cloud can play and the potential pitfalls of such options. ake away tips and tricks to make automation more stable, and to deal with the numerous versions and configurations common in large projects.

MB A Rapid Introduction to Rapid Software esting Michael Bolton, DevelopSense You re under tight time pressure and have barely enough information to proceed with testing. How do you test quickly and inexpensively, yet still produce informative, credible, and accountable results? Rapid Software esting, adopted by context-driven testers worldwide, offers a field-proven answer to this all-too-common dilemma. In this one-day sampler of the approach, Michael Bolton introduces you to the skills and practice of Rapid Software esting through stories, discussions, and minds-on exercises that simulate important aspects of real testing problems. he rapid approach isn t just testing with speed or a sense of urgency; it s mission-focused testing that eliminates unnecessary work, assures that the most important things get done, and constantly asks how testers can help speed up the successful completion of the project. Join Michael to learn how Rapid esting focuses on both the mind set and skill set of the individual tester, using tight loops of exploration and critical thinking skills to help continuously re-optimize testing to match clients needs and expectations. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a indows-compatible computer to the class. MC Getting Started with Risk-Based esting Dale Perry, Software Quality Engineering hether you are new to testing or looking for a better way to organize your test practices, understanding risk is essential to successful testing. Dale Perry describes a general risk-based framework applicable to any development lifecycle model to help you make critical testing decisions earlier and with more confidence. Learn how to focus your testing effort, what elements to test, and how to organize test designs and documentation. Review the fundamentals of risk identification, analysis, and the role testing plays in risk mitigation. Develop an inventory of test objectives to help prioritize your testing and translate them into a concrete strategy for creating tests. Focus your tests on the areas essential to your stakeholders. Execution and assessing test results provide a better understanding of both the effectiveness of your testing and the potential for failure in your software. ake back a proven approach to organize your testing efforts and new ways to add more value to your project and organization. MD Introduction to Selenium and ebdriver NE Alan Richardson, Compendium Developments Selenium is an open source automation tool for test driving browser-based applications. ebdriver, the newly-introduced API for Selenium against which tests are written in Java, contains classes including ChromeDriver, AndroidDriver, and iphonedriver. Sometimes test authors find the API daunting and their initial automation code brittle and poorly structured. In this introduction, Alan Richardson provides hints and tips gained from his years of experience both using ebdriver and helping others improve their use of the tool. Alan starts at the beginning, explaining the basic ebdriver API capabilities simple interrogation and navigation and then moves on to synchronization strategies and working with AJAX applications. He covers tools and location strategies to find elements on web pages using CSS and XPath. Alan provides an introduction to abstraction approaches which help you build robust, reliable, and maintainable automation suites. LAPOP REQUIRED Hands-on exercises require a laptop computer with Firefox, Firebug, and Firepath installed. You will write code! Coding exercises require an IDE (IntelliJ), Java SDK, and Maven.
