  • Scaling Whole Team Quality (EN)

    At ista International we implement the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). As a tester in the System Team I focus on end-to-end tests, which sometimes feels like a waterfall approach: feeling responsible for catching bugs and having the impression that teams work in an uncoordinated way.
    While translating the Whole Team Quality Approach to our SAFe context I recognized our past improvements and initiated further changes.
    In this talk, I will share my view on Whole Team Quality in a Scaled Agile context, the improvements we have already achieved, and the things we have adjusted recently.

    Thomas Rinke

    Thomas Rinke is Software Engineer specializing in Software Test at ista International GmbH.
    He worked as a research assistant in the area of risk-based testing and then as pre-sales and professional service consultant and trainer. In 2011, he joined ista International GmbH as Team Manager Software Test. During the agile transition to the Scaled Agile Framework he became software engineer and now works as software tester in the system team, focusing on cross-platform end-to-end tests.
    He is an occasional speaker and has been a member of the German Testing Day conference board since 2015.

  • Infrastructure as Code: Pipelines & Good Practices

    Infrastructure-as-code enables the definition, configuration and provisioning of infrastructure using code. This is an enabler for automation and also allows the application of good practices from software engineering to infrastructure processes. Version control, reviews, test automation, staging and deployment pipelines give us the security and speed to bring infrastructure changes into production quickly. In this talk, I show which of these practices and patterns have proven themselves in practice, how they are successfully applied, and how infrastructure changes can be brought into production through pipelines.

  • Making computers design their own tests and fixes (EN)

    What if your software could test itself? And what if it could not only find the bugs, but also suggest ways to fix the underlying code?

    In his keynote, Mark will tell us about Sapienz, a system for automated test case design using Search Based Software Engineering (SBSE). With this approach, which tests through the user interface (UI), Facebook is pushing test automation into the design of tests as well as their execution.

    Sapienz has been deployed at Facebook since October 2017 to design test cases, localise and triage faults to developers and to monitor their fixes. It is now used on a daily basis to test millions of lines of code in Facebook’s Android app. Since August 2018, the system has also been automating the process of suggesting fixes for some of these faults.

    Mark Harman

    Mark Harman is an engineering manager at Facebook London, where he manages the Sapienz team, working on Search Based Software Engineering (SBSE) for automated test case design and fault fixing. Sapienz has been deployed to continuously test Facebook’s Android and iOS apps, leading to thousands of bugs being automatically found and fixed (mostly by developers, but more recently, some of these faults have also been automatically fixed by Sapienz). The software tackled by Sapienz consists of tens of millions of lines of code; apps that are among the largest and most complex in the app store and that are used by over a billion people worldwide every day for communication, social networking and community building.

    Mark is also a part time professor of Software Engineering in the Department of Computer Science at University College London, where he directed the CREST centre for ten years (2006-2017) and was Head of Software Systems Engineering (2012-2017). He is known for his scientific work on SBSE, source code analysis, software testing, app store analysis and empirical software engineering. He was the co-founder of the field SBSE, which has grown rapidly with over 1,700 scientific publications from authors spread over more than 40 countries. SBSE research and practice is now the primary focus of his current work in both the industrial and scientific communities. In addition to Facebook itself, Mark’s scientific work is also supported by an ERC advanced fellowship grant and by the UK EPSRC funding council.

  • Better, Faster, Stronger - Delivering High Quality Products (EN)

    Did you know you can enable your team to build better software faster while having a stronger team culture? Working with various diverse teams across multiple projects, Finn realised that testing doesn’t actually improve software quality. In order to actually improve we must get involved into much more than simply testing and think about the product as a whole. In this session, Finn will share specific examples of how engaging with the business, engineering, process optimisation as well as the entire crossfunctional team can lead to significant improvements in the product’s quality.


    Finn Lorbeer

He wants to share some of the ideas and concepts his team developed while working on different projects throughout ThoughtWorks Germany.

  • Continuous Integration Testing for Mobile Application (DE)

    Continuous integration and testing (CI/CT) is core to the DevOps and test automation is invaluable in it. While the approach and tooling for web automation is well known, adding mobile increases the complexity significantly. This presentation shows how we achieved Continuous integration and testing for Credit Suisse Direct – our Banking application by 1)Building multi-channel automated tests , 2) Establish an in-house execution cloud for web and mobile (3) Integrate the new technology in a Multichannel Test Strategy that fulfills high quality and compliance standards of Swiss banks using SAFe.

  • Web Application Firewall in DevOps (DE)

    DevOps und eine Web Application Firewall (WAF) passen nicht zusammen – leider wird das oft befürchtet.
    Problematisch wird es, wenn eine WAF erst in der Produktion eingeführt wird. Eine WAF kann potenziell auch legitime HTTP Requests blocken und dazu führen, dass Benutzer ausgesperrt werden.

    Wichtig ist, dass die WAF früh in den DevOps Prozess eingebunden wird und der Entwickler früh Feedback erhält. Die WAF sollte bereits ein integraler Bestandteil der Tests sein.

    Ich werde aufzeigen, wie die WAF ModSecurity mit dem OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set in eine CI Pipeline eingebunden werden kann.

  • Serverless Integration Testing (DE)

    Für viele IT-Abteilungen steht das Testen so früh und so oft wie möglich auf dem Agenda. Es gibt zwar viele Techniken (z.B. TDD) und Werkzeuge (z.B, JUnit), die Testanwendungen bzw Test-Systeme unterstützen. System-Integrationstests (SIT) finden in der Regel nach jeder Entwicklung statt. Daher ist die SIT ein wesentliches Hindernis für die CI/CD, da jede Anwendung vor der Produktion einen SIT-Test bestehen muss. In diesem Vortrag stellen wir unsere Erfahrungen mit der Einführung von zwei Ansätzen für die Bereiche Testsystemintegration ohne Testumgebung: Verbraucherorientiert Vertrag (CDC) Test und Service Virtualisierung .

  • How to Help Testers and Developers Work Together in Harmony (EN)

    One of the biggest challenges for test managers and project leadership is how to avoid the typical miscommunications between testers and developers. Despite best efforts, we often find that assumptions, team processes and even choice of language can create friction and frustration between developers and testers. This session will discuss the roots of the communication disconnects and provide practical strategies for enabling harmonious, productive teams, with examples taken from actual client situations. The session will include a discussion what ‘done’ and ‘happy path’ really means.

  • Reliability in a world of endless surprise (EN)

    Our systems are too big, too complex, and change too quickly to understand them completely. Emergent phenomena elude prediction, even with perfect knowledge. Determinism is an appealing but fundamentally flawed way of thinking about complex systems and is progressively being rejected by natural sciences as well. Instead of chasing an ever-more-perfect mental model, we are better served by embracing ambiguity and surprise. This leads to investing in isolation, ad-hoc debugging and recovery instead of preventing errors or investing in curated dashboards. It also means shifting our language from “root causes” to a more nuanced view of contributory factors.
    In this talk, I will tell the story of how thinking about knowledge and cause and effect has evolved in philosophy of science over time and how our field’s developing notions of reliability mirror this evolution but are quite a bit behind. By learning from other fields, we can advance our profession without having to re-discover the same truths from scratch. Finally, I will show how making the shift to rapid recovery for reliability purposes happens to also be the most economic approach to balancing innovation with reliability.

  • How we fail and keep on trying (EN)

    We have moved from a classic “development workshop” company focusing on body-leasing to a solution provider. In parallel we started the transformation from a classic organized company claiming to do agile, to a company with flat hierarchies trying to do agile and are now working hard to actually become agile and implement SAFe and DevOps – as a whole organization and not only in our development teams. Where are we now? What did we achieve and how did we benefit from it? Are we done yet? All these will be covered in our talk with the goal to give others inspiration and motivation to start and finish the journey.

  • Continuous delivery at scale (EN)

    Traditional enterprises with their core business not being technology (e.g. banks, insurance companies) typically struggle to adopt to the new reality where software rules the world. These enterprises are now in the late phase of adopting DevOps. It has been empirically shown that continuous delivery can be an important driver for DevOps and high performing development teams practice continuous delivery for shipping their software to the user.

    In this talk I would like to outline the many obstacles to overcome when doing continuous delivery at scale at such traditional enterprises. Furthermore, the audience will learn what the do’s and don’ts of continuous delivery are along with the most common pitfalls to avoid.

  • Blockchain Testing (DE)

    The business case of Block-Parcello is based upon the challenges that the logistics industry is facing regarding cross-border shipments. Our use cases are ensuring high data quality for tracking shipments allowing users to automatize accounting tasks that are currently highly manual and slow in performance. This is also leading to several test challenges. As every kind of data is stored decentralized in one ledger and includes metadata we also included the thought of Customs Documentation process, as it is also an important part of the supply chain and can also rely on Blockchain information.

  • Deploy Microservices confidently using consumer-driven contracts

  • Why everything you have learned about CI/CD is wrong (EN)

    You know CI/CD are important, but you’re not quite sure what they are or how to improve these practices. If so, this talk is for you! Antonia and Ian team up to deliver a fun and insightful CI/CD session like you’ve never before experienced. While nearly every software team has a CI server, many are skipping important practices that are key to unlocking high performance. Let’s step back to explore the conceptual underpinnings of CI/CD, then connect practices with tools. We’ll examine:

    • Detect – Safety begins with finding errors before they become problems
    • Deliver – Measure progress in terms of delivering working software
    • Communicate – Quality and improvement as everyone’s responsibility

    When the right practice are applied, you’ll wonder how you could have lived life before!

  • Developer Experience in a Post-DevOps world (DE)

    DevOps came into being to address the conflicts between developers and operations staff so companies could move faster with happier employees. For companies relying heavily on cloud-native approaches, technology has today advanced to a state where a separation between Dev and Ops is not even practical anymore. The challenge for these companies is not anymore about tearing down the wall of confusion between Dev and Ops, but to maximise the productivity of their whole engineering organisation.

    The goal is creating the best Developer Experience possible to reduce any friction between the inception of an idea and the customer being able to use it. This talk will explain the strategies we are following at Scout24 to reach that goal and will touch on technological and organisational choices we made along the way.

  • Erfolgreich Geld verschwenden mit Testing (DE)

    Agile Testing ist oft eine Vertrauenssache. Traditionelles Vorgehen mündet oft in eine Test-Bürokratie. Wie können wir die beiden Vorgehensmodelle hinsichtlich Testaktivitäten verbessern, ohne ein komplett neues Modell implementieren zu müssen. Lean Testing hat mit Verhinderung von Waste und Fokussierung auf Value, gegenüber dem agilen- und traditionellen Testing, einen erweiterten Fokus. In diesem Vortrag wird ein möglicher Lean Testrahmen präsentiert und ergründet wieso Lean Testing dazu beitragen kann, das Testing unabhängig vom Software-Entwicklungsmodell qualitative zu verbessern.

  • (near-real-time) Entscheidungen in einem agilen Umfeld (DE)

    Auf unserem Planeten entstehen immer mehr Städte. In diesen Städten müssen in Zukunft verschiedene Unternehmen über ihre Grenzen hinweg und sogar unter Einbezug der öffentlichen Hand agil neue Geschäftsmodelle entwickeln. Diese Geschäftsmodelle bauen neben der der Geschäftsmodellinnovation auch auf Produktinnovation (über Unternehmensgrenzen hinweg). Was kann DevOps und die damit verbundene Agile Arbeitsweise daraus lernen? Eine Smart City Architektur sollte den Entscheidern und Entwicklern also (near-real-time) Entscheidungsmöglichkeiten wie beispielsweise Soziokratien und systemischem Konsensieren für die agile Entwicklung der Smart City bieten. Dieselben Konzepte können auf die agile Welt adaptiert werden um DevOps-Teams zu mehr Entscheidungskompetenzen zu verhelfen wodurch sich das Management stark verändern wird.

  • Hard-wired for Failure? Unser Gehirn im digitalen Zeitalter

    Das menschliche Gehirn ist ein faszinierendes Organ, dass sich im Verlauf der Evolution zu einem enorm anpassungsfähigen Organ entwickelt hat. Mit diesem Organ gelingt es dem Menschen, sich an verschiedene Kulturen und Umgebungen anzupassen. Aber ist diese Anpassungsfähigkeit grenzenlos? Können wir uns mit diesem Gehirn auch an die moderne digitale Welt anpassen? Oder sind wir überfordert? Wie geht das Gehirn mit der modernen digitalen Medien um und welche Konsequenzen können wir für die Zukunft erwarten? Diese Fragen werde ich im Rahmen meines Vortrages durchaus kontrovers diskutieren. Dabei werden auch konkrete Bezüge zum aktuellen und zukünftig zu erwartenden Arbeitsalltag gezogen.
