Thinking Holistically About Quality and Testing 

Organizations talk about delivering high-quality products. The business cares about the quality of delivered features. Our customers demand quality in the product they are buying. Delivery teams talk about topics like internal code quality, testing, DevOps culture and how to improve their processes. With so many different perspectives, it’s no wonder we get confused about how to deliver that product that will delight our customers. In this keynote, Janet shares her experiences in how to look at quality from a holistic point of view – for both product and process quality. She explains the collaborative whole team to quality ownership that has transformed her teams. Join Janet to learn a new, holistic perspective to quality.

Growing an Experiment-driven Quality Culture

You know your own product team needs to improve when it comes to testing and quality, yet you are not sure how to tackle this challenge? Many teams out there feel the need to grow a quality mindset, considering this to be a major stumbling block in their environments. At my current company, tech leadership had a clear mission: improve the testing and quality culture of our product teams by leveling up knowledge, skills, and practices. The problem: how to get there? Experiments to the rescue! In a complex environment like ours, no one could tell what would work, so we had to try things out. I designed an experiment to increase transparency, raise awareness, and especially drive experimentation in individual teams to grow a quality culture. Together with a newly formed working group, I supported four pilot teams to design, run and evaluate their own measurable experiments in their own specific context. These teams tried various approaches like exploratory testing, pair and ensemble testing, or documenting architectural decisions. In this talk I will share our lessons learned, the outcome and impact of these experiments, and what influenced the next experiments to try. Get inspired by our continuous journey towards making experiments a part of team culture across the company! Takeaways: Understand why small, frugal experiments are crucial in complex environments Learn how to design your own measurable experiments, in your team or globally. Get tips on how to run and evaluate experiments. Gain insights on how to learn from experiment results and decide on next steps. Start a movement towards an experiment-driven quality culture.

Maintainable Test Automation 

"Maintainable Test Automation" is a talk inspired by Test Automation projects that were started with much enthusiasm but failed hopelessly because after a year it costs more time to maintain the tests than to do anything else.

Why is Mendix different?

Mendix is a low-code development tool, but what does this mean in terms of testing? What is similar to what we know and what are the differences? Unit testing for instance seems to be on a different level - moving towards component/flow testing. What not seems to change is the hesitation to look into the database. In this talk, most aspects of testing (in Mendix) will be covered.
