Improving Test Team Throughput by Improving Test Architecture – presented by Dustin Williams
Thursday, June 8 – 2:00pm – 3:00pm

A lot of modern testing teams are built from people with some automation experience, developers, and people who think code is something used to open a safe. These diverse backgrounds bring a diverse set of ideas, but don’t always find optimal division of work. With some fairly small changes in automated test design, we can leverage the best skills of all team members to not only improve throughput, but to end up with a better overall product. These design principles help isolate truly challenging code problems and help separate the concerns of test structure and test execution. If your team has ever said (with sad faces) “We’re still automating that”, then come discover how tomorrow you can exclaim “That’s Done!”

Going Responsive – presented by Robert Cochran
Friday, June 9 – 8:00am – 9:00am

Users are dropping their desktops/laptops in favor of their phone or tablet at an impressive rate. If these platforms make our site difficult to use it will create a negative impression on our users, ultimately costing our companies business. To survive this trend we must go responsive.

This session will discuss the basic principals of a responsive site: Flexible Images, Media Queries, and Fluid Grids. Without the assistance of a framework we will face lift a non-responsive site. Lastly, we will compare and contrast several of the simple and complete responsive frameworks that are available today: Bootstrap, Foundation, and Responsive Grid System.
