Paul Grenyer discusses why and how to create a Walking Skeleton - an implementation of the thinnest possible slice of real functionality that we can automatically build, deploy and test end-to-end.
Doug Hiebert discusses the principles and objectives behind automated testing, TDD, Unit and Integration Testing, using asserting and mocking to write tests, and static analysis.
David Starr demoes Pex –a parameterized white box unit test tool- and Moles –an isolation framework-, two .NET tools useful for test-first development.
Ulf Wiger discusses the importance of automated testing along with some lessons learned at Ericsson, including using randomized and extensive testing, aiming to achieve system robustness.
Steve Ross-Talbot presents Savara, an open source project comprising from a set of tools enabling enterprise architects to validate various artifacts against other artifacts built in different phases of the development process based on the “Testable Architecture” methodology.
Stephanie Forrest believes in applying evolutionary biology principles to the software process creating evolvable software through automated bug repair, improving code and creating new combinations of existing functionality.
Ashish Kumar presents how Google manages to keep the source code of all its projects, over 2000, in a single code trunk containing hundreds of millions of code lines, with more than 5,000 developers accessing the same repository.
Alois Reitbauer shows how to do performance testing of complex software systems during development, testing, and production by starting early in the development phase, breaking the test into pieces, and testing continuously. He also shows how to perform scalability tests on limited hardware or by using the cloud.
Mobile Testing Challenge: Why Mobile Apps Need Real-World Testing Coverage and How Crowdsourcing Can Help
Doron Reuveni presents how to use crowdsourcing for testing mobile applications in different ways - scripted/exploratory, on device/off device, automated/manual -, the specific characteristics of the In-the-Wild testing accompanied by a live demo, and some real-world success stories.
Simon Stewart presents the activity of Google’s Engineering Productivity team and the role Software Engineers in Test (SETs) play in helping software developers to make their code more maintainable, recommending some of their tools: Gold linker, Eclipse, distcc, JDepend, graphviz.
Gerard Holzmann discusses Spin, a design analyzer tool, and Scrub, a code review tool, used by Jet Propulsion Laboratory to analyze and fix the software used for critical solar system exploration missions.
