Embracing accessibility into your development and test practices

The European Union has passed the European Accessibility Act which requires many everyday products and services to be accessible for persons with disabilities, and many development teams are going to change their practices to be able to compile.
This lecture will cover all steps needed to upgrade your process from raising awareness and educating all stakeholders to experience validation with real users. We will also dive into tools and coding example in static code analysis, requirement analysis, automated integration and exploratory testing. We will also cover multiple development environments and differences in approaching mobile and web accessibility practices.

Key takeaways:
Understanding accessibility requirements
Extending the development & test process with accessibility tools
Roadmap to introducing accessibility compliance

Schwarz QAs SAFe path to success – QA team cohesion as a success factor for better agile team performance in SAFe

Can we successfully implement agile development from the ground up, beginning with the QA team members? OR, what should we do if team "Alpha" of quality assurance specialists exhibits excellent knowledge and responsibility sharing, open communication, and team harmony (social cohesion) but nevertheless faces a lot of challenges? Perhaps, there is still a gap between ideal and improved results?

The goal of this presentation is to provide the team as a whole with a firm foundation of knowledge and a place to begin when fostering an Agile and QA attitude.

How to Test Digital Twins

Topic related to digital twins is very interesting but not very known in the testing industry.
I would like to start discussion about digital twins between testers in the world, because I think this could be the topic of the future and there are still many open questions.
Concept of digital twins is here for a while, it is a virtual representation of a physical asset (object, process or system). Digital twin is like a virtual copy of a real-world asset that can be used for testing, monitoring, and analysing its performance in a safe and controlled environment. Now with growing popularity of internet of things, artificial intelligence and machine learning, the topic of digital twins is getting importance and becoming the topic of the future.

In my presentation, I would like to get the attendees to get familiar with the topic of digital twins, I will explain them the concept and examples of the usage. I will share:
- the understanding of the concept of digital twins
- the industries where it can be used
- examples of the usage in these industries
- my experience with digital twins
- tools which we can use for designing digital twins
- testing approaches/test techniques for testing digital twins (model-based testing, simulation/emulation-based testing)
- manual testing of digital twins
- automation testing of digital twins
- challenges in testing digital twins (data, scalability, regulations, results interpretation, complexity)
- why we as testers/QA engineers should be interested in this topic

Workshop: Start creating tests without waiting when you understand everything

Test engineers often encounter imperfect requirements that pose challenges in their testing and make it difficult to formulate appropriate test cases. Testers commonly face various obstacles when dealing with complex requirements, including the difficulty of initiating test case creation, estimating test efforts, planning test coverage, and delegating test execution to colleagues.

In this interactive workshop, we will delve into the realm of complex requirements and explore how to deal with them using object-oriented mind maps. By the end of this session, participants will be equipped with the skills to design tests with confidence, identify gaps in requirements, and formulate questions that uncover potential ambiguities.

Join to discover how mind mapping can streamline your test design process and enhance overall test effectiveness.

Ask the QA engineer or dentist for AI in your life

Do you find it personally or professionally challenging to talk about artificial intelligence in dentistry and IT at the same time? Well, the answer is both. When it comes to Artificial Intelligence (AI) we should think about how it can be a success factor in our daily lives and help us in our personal and/or interpersonal development. Surely every one of us has been to the dentist's office at least once in our lives and noticed that there are many devices being used today. This is where Artificial Intelligence comes in and helps us see how we can be more and more advanced every day. So, in this presentation, we will look at how Artificial Intelligence helps us and look at it from an everyday life perspective, but also from an IT and QA perspective.

Test estimation - how did I become a fortune-teller

Test estimation is often perceived as a some sort of a fun fact. But it is a core activity for a better understanding of what QAs are doing and what they will be doing. Main problems about test estimation are that people do not know why and how to estimate and even when they did no one cares. I've started to dig and look for a reason and benefits from test estimation. As a result I've created my own mindset in this area which, as I tend to believe, can change a lot in this field. I will share my own mindset behind test estimation. I will show why and how to estimate testing, how to communicate your estimate and how to protect your estimate.

Climate impact of software testing

This talk gives a fresh perspective into software testing roles in sustainable development and specifically the climate impact. I will also touch what ICT and coding climate impact is, on my way to painting the picture of testing's impact on the same. Coding and testing can create a positive carbon handprint, which means influencing the information system ecological attributes in a climate positive manner. When you code, you can make architectural choices that end up using less energy when they are executed in the cloud. When you aim for early quality, the need to fix software diminishes, the cost per fixed defect diminishes, and as a consequence, the hours of test environment use during software development and testing diminish, too.

The talk encourages to optimize the number of tests by using risk analysis techniques, test techniques, and AI-based test optimization, both for first time tests and for regression tests. The talk encourages to create on-demand test environments instead of all-the-time on old and cumbersome environments. The talk encourages to look at the software being tested not only from the point of view the typical quality attributes but also from the point of climate impact and energy use, thus adding more acceptance criteria and items on the definition of done. The talk also encourages to use test automation and agile practices. Many of the typical early testing or shift left practices help in minimizing climate impact but by looking at them consciously, we can contribute to minimizing climate impact, and rather creating a positive carbon handprint!

Testing ideas can be seeded from the very beginning of the project, once a proper agile business analysis is being done.

Besides the testing ideas, applying the proper business analysis techniques with the proper audience, including a QA representative, the team connects, the stakeholders and customers have a better understanding of the influence of a change has, the team (represented here by QAs) have a better understanding of the final customer views and needs.

Starting with a vision at the business level, we dive into the agile project and the testing activities that come along.
