Nicole Forsgren (VP, Research & Strategy at GitHub) and Angie Jones (Senior Developer Advocate at Applitools):
Research vs Reality: Test Automation and DevOps as Key Enablers for High Performing TeamsAbstract.
Nicole Forsgren, VP of Research & Strategy at GitHub, is best known as the lead investigator on the largest DevOps studies to date and lead author on Accelerate.Angie Jones, a test automation architect, consults with development teams across the world to help them with their test automation and DevOps strategy.In this keynote, Nicole and Angie will examine the instrumental role that a good test automation strategy plays in “building quality in” to our software and systems – and what that means for performance, reliability, and safety. This is based on their respective work in rigorous research and the reality of what teams are building and deploying in large, complex systems using DevOps and Agile methodologies.The research outlines specific capabilities to improve software delivery, but the reality is that many teams are struggling to take these steps towards transformation. And what many practitioners don’t realize is that the world of automated testing has changed; by embracing the state of the art, they can truly transform their software quality and delivery.

Join Nicole and Angie as they discuss:
* What practices development teams are currently following
* The debunking of common myths and misconceptions around test automation in DevOps
* How development teams can adopt the guidelines found in the research, while facing the reality of their current constraints
