Testing: Software Development Catalyst

Testing is not an isolated activity. It interacts with and influences other disciplines in software development such as design, coding, release management, and deployment. As testers, our skills and experiences add value far beyond the immediate context of verifying functionality. Threats to value other than software errors exist.

Yet our discussions are often constrained to the testing space, omitting the connections to, and dependencies on, other roles and activities. Testing is an integral discipline of software development, and often plays an active and important role in bridging gaps between technical and business-focused roles, between leaders and engineers, and between makers and users.

How does the testing piece fit into the software development puzzle? How does – and how should – testing interact with other disciplines in software development? How can we most effectively add value to the software development projects we participate in?

Please join us for our 11th annual conference at the Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre campus in downtown Vancouver, Canada, August 8-10 2016.

Find out how AI techniques is used to test Candy Crush Saga games. Candy Crush Saga is one of the biggest mobile games today and there's a huge demand for new levels on top of already existing 1000+ levels. With frequent releases of new levels the challenge to regression test all levels to make sure all levels are ok is increasingly getting harder for each release. Alexander will describe how King tackles this testing task with help of AI together with existing test frameworks and share valuable takeaways, after presentation you will have a better understanding how AI can help you with testing that's getting to difficult to master with traditional testing techniques.
