  • AI and Machine Learning in a Selenium World Apr 22 2020 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Mike Wagner, Test Architect and Principal Consultant for tap|QA
    Many testing teams today use Selenium for their automation needs and rightfully so, Selenium allows for cross browser and mobile support, it’s free and has a large open source community behind it.

    Regardless of its feature set, Selenium and test automation in general has its own list of pain points like test maintenance and test coverage.
    These pain points can have a large impact on testing metrics depending on the test architecture used and the design patterns being followed.

    To address these pain points a team can utilize areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) via open source libraries.
    This enables the tests to find their own elements and attempt every possible combination of test cases, which a tester could then store, rerun, and iterate on.
    This approach effectively gives Selenium a brain in the form of models and actions.

    Join Mike Wagner, Test Architect and Principal Consultant for tap|QA as he leads this informative session for teams interested in integrating Artificial Intelligence into their existing Selenium framework.

    Takeaways: Understanding of the different areas of Machine Learning/AI with an emphasis on:
    * Convolutional Neural Networks (How they apply to element selection)
    * Reinforcement Learning (How it applies to test coverage)
    Approach for implementing Convolutional Neural Networks and Reinforcement Learning into an existing Selenium framework.
    * Introduction to top open source libraries related to Machine Learning
  • [Panel] Finding the Balance Between Manual and Automated Testing Apr 22 2020 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Panel of experts
    Keeping up with customer expectations in the digital age and continuously releasing high-quality software is tough. While not a silver bullet, the answer to doing both well in 2020 increasingly lies in test automation.

    However, adopting test automation is not without its challenges, and it must be blended correctly with manual testing.

    Join this panel of testing experts as they discuss how to find the balance between manual and automated testing, including:

    - Where to introduce automated testing
    - Why it’s crucial that you establish a repeatable manual documented process prior to implementing any automation
    - How to scale automated testing
  • Achieving Data Agility in a DevSecOps World Recorded: Dec 11 2019 35 mins
    Sanjeev Sharma, VP and Global Practice Director for Data Modernization, Delphix
    As organizations mature on their DevOps adoption journey, adopting Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) automation, and breaking down organizational silos, application delivery and infrastructure provisioning speed is being accelerated. The next challenge now being exposed is the lack of agility in delivering Data into non-production environments.

    Development and Testing require the availability of relevant data in the production-like Dev and Test environments on demand, to ensure rapid testing and validation of each Build. Data is however difficult to provision and deliver on demand. This results in Data Friction being the impediment to true ‘flow’ through application delivery pipelines. Other than the inherent cost and time it takes to provision and store data instances, there is also the risk that exponentially increases as more and more instances of Data are provisioned in multiple non-production environments.

    As Dev-Test teams deliver faster and leverage more environments across parallel development streams, the number of non-production Data instances is typically several orders of magnitude higher than Production instances, increasing the exposed surface area. The ask hence is to be able to provision and deliver production-like Data instances, on-demand, as, when and where Dev-test practitioners need them in non-prod environments, while securing the Data at the same time.

    In this session Sanjeev Sharma, VP and Global Practice Director for Data Modernization will discuss practices large enterprises need to adopt, across Process, Technology and People in order to be able to Provision, Deploy, Manage, Govern, and Secure Data in Application Delivery Pipelines, addressing Data Friction and Data Security challenges that may be impeding DevSecOps adoption.
  • Tips and Tricks for Docker-Based Pipelines Recorded: Nov 21 2019 47 mins
    Dan Garfield, Chief Technology Evangelist, Codefresh.io
    Most people think “adopting containers” means deploying Docker images to production. In practice, adopting containers in the continuous integration process provides visible benefits even if the production environment are VMs. In this webinar, we will explore this pattern by packaging all build tools inside Docker containers. Container-based pipelines allow us to create and reuse building blocks to make pipeline creation and management MUCH easier. It’s like building with Legos instead of clay.

    This not only makes pipeline creation and maintenance much easier, it also solves a myriad of classic CI/CD problems such as:
    Putting an end to version conflicts in build machines
    Eliminating build machine management in general
    Step portability and maintenance

    In a very real sense, Docker-based pipelines reflect lessons learned from microservices in CI/CD pipelines. We will share tips and tricks for running these kinds of pipelines while using Codefresh as a CI/CD solution as it fully supports pipelines where each build step is running on its own Docker image.

  • SHIFT LEFT THEN SHIFT UP: Strengthening Your DevSecOps Posture Recorded: Oct 23 2019 46 mins
    Rani Osnat, VP of Product Marketing Aqua Security
    The concept of “shift left” engages security earlier in the development cycle of cloud-native applications, accelerating development while reducing risk. However, migrating to cloud-native environments also necessitates the security team to “shift up”, focusing on the application layer to account for the shared-service model and “thin OS” environments that are prevalent in these environments.

    Attend this webinar to learn why Shifting Up provides improved security and cost efficiency in cloud-native environments, including:

    - Kubernetes orchestrated applications
    - Containers running on VMs
    - Serverless containers (e.g., AWS Fargate and Azure Container Instances)
    - Serverless functions (e.g., AWS Lambda and Azure Functions)
