Programme Secretary and Managing Director of Testing Solutions Group, Bernard Melson, has put together a great agenda of high quality speakers including:

Microsoft’s, Roger Davidson, who will be presenting on Collaboration and efficient testing. The presentation will provide some insight into the constraints of limited time or budget and how this can impact product quality.

Julian Harty from Ebay, will be discussing Test Automation for Mobile Phone Applications. This talk provides a primer on ways to test mobile phone applications, both interactively and using test automation. It will cover the full software lifecycle from creation to user-feedback for installed and web-based mobile applications.

SQE & StickyMinds will be at the conference with Lee Copeland talking about Advanced Test Case Design Using Pairwise Testing. Lee will share examples of the effectiveness of pairwise testing and demonstrate the technique through the use of Microsoft’s PICT tool.

Paul Malcolm and Rachel Wettach, NHS Wales, will share practical, working examples of creating a software application development-testing framework and the software test ‘templates’ and guidance they provide to clients in the UK healthcare sector, such as the NHS in Wales.

Allan Kelly will outline the three different ways the word “Agile” is used; Agile methods, Agile Toolkit and the state of Agile. In doing so he will discuss customers, project design, strategy and portfolio management and how these need to work together to achieve Agility.

Testing Solutions Group’s, John Young, asks “Can your team build a LEGO city in three sprints?” His workshop will give participants experience of forming an agile team and working together to implement user stories and get them accepted by the product owner. The workshop will challenge the participants ingenuity, requirements gathering, team working, estimation, communication and LEGO construction skills. The team that delivers the most business value will win a prize. For more information about Agile software development click here.

Lloyd Roden will hold the closing keynote, where he reveals a counterintuitive principle that explains why certain efficiency efforts can slow a company down and why Agile projects in particular can create “burnout” with staff members.

Also sponsoring the conference is SOASTA. Some of the speakers are new to the conference and some are internationally recognised but they all have experience in the industry and something interesting to say.
