MGMT 1: Don’t miss the train! Test automation is finally growing up.

October 6, 2021 from 10:50 to 11:25

Speaker: Marcel Veselka, Tesena (CZ)

Marcel has spent his career in software testing and currently, he is working as a Principal SW Testing Consultant at Tesena. Previously, he worked as a Test Analyst and finally moved to Test Management in complex transformation projects and core banking implementations covering mainly integration testing and performance testing. He is also a former vice-president of the CaSTB (regional ISTQB board) and co-founder of the testing community called [pro]Test!. In 2013 he found company Tesena where he now with more than 120 colleagues from Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, and Brno is helping their customers across Europe to win in their business via improving the software quality of their products. His special interest is modern testing approaches (including all the trendy topics like test automation, DevOps, testing in SCRUM, AI, and machine learning)

The search for more efficient, quicker, and cheaper testing has been ongoing for a long time. In the past, test automation was frequently presented as the solution to this problem. These days it has become at least a small part of any modern software testing process. However, in the next years, the test automation market will further grow. It’s not only the size of test automation that is growing, but it’s also increasing in maturity. It is now better than ever before as the tools are getting to grow more advanced and the practices more mature.

In his presentation „Do not miss your train! Test Automation is getting mature“, Marcel will share his insight on current trends and the opportunities that arise for testers. He will talk about how the test automation market is changing, what are the current hot trends, and what new opportunities these will bring to us. Some of the most interesting innovations relate to improving scope selection, execution, and maintenance of the automated test pack, powered by AI and ML.
