Open Source Test Automation: Riding the Second Wave
After the first wave of open source test automation tools like Fitnesse and Watir, we are now in a stronger, second wave led by Selenium-based frameworks. This powerful swell, fueled by a major shift toward web-based applications on desktops and mobile devices, is changing how corporations tackle software test automation.
Add in a desire to replace old-guard, commercial tools in favor of newer technology with lower costs, we may have a perfect storm. However, with different technologies come new challenges. Adopters of Selenium and other open source software are discovering implementation that open source can be tricky and demand attention in areas normally managed by the commercial tools and vendors. To help you better ride this open source wave, David Dang shares his experiences in understanding and developing the necessary open source mind-set, retooling testers’ skill sets, working more closely with developers to minimize test automation hurdles, and navigating common pitfalls. Join David to learn how to avoid an open source test automation wipe out and reach the shore like a champion.

A Tester's Guide to Collaborating with Product Owners
In this webinar agile experts, Bob Galen and Shaun Bradshaw, will explore new ideas and techniques for helping your Product Owner and team deliver better received and higher value products.
In Scrum the Product Owner is relatively starkly defined. They are the owner of the Product Backlog and represent the “customer”. In many organizations, they “go it alone”, trying their best to represent business needs for their teams. What’s often missing in this approach is a wonderful collaborative connection between the teams’ testers and the Product Owner. A connection where testers help to define and refine requirements, broaden the testing landscape and align it to customer needs, provide a collaborate conduit between the customer and the team, assure that the team is building the “right thing”, and helping to demonstrate complete features . This relationship is not only central to the team, but facilitates transparency and helps gain feedback from the entire organization. Join seasoned agile coach Bob Galen as he shares stories and techniques for doing just this. You will return to your agile teams with new ideas and techniques for helping your Product Owner and team deliver better received and higher value products; not just by “testing,” but by “fostering collaboration.”
- Why it’s important to view the backlog as more than a list of requirements
- How to become an active member of the 3-Pillars
- Why serving as a bridge between the Product Owner and the Team is your Prime Directive
- Why ensuring you’re building the right thing is MUCH more important than “testing”
