Abstract/Description

Most of us are faced with User Interfaces to test but how many of us are taught to actually test them? Have you ever forgotten to test something about a UI or have you had to cover environments where you are less familiar with system variations that may affect the application.
This workshop will look at both the theory and practice of testing User Interfaces. Using physical examples we will look at how the environment changes the tests you need to consider.
Working together through these exercises, you will strengthen your own testing skills library that you can draw from in the future.

About the Speaker(s)

Emma comes with a degree in Computer Science many moons ago and chose to work as a test engineer, starting out as a compiler tester in the semi conductor chip industry. During this time she became familiar with both hardware and software and used many languages (ARM, C PHP etc) to develop and enhance automated testing against a suite of tools and enable developers to be able to initiate their own builds and determine the status of these and allow them to investigate build issues early. This good grounding in the develop lifecycle and the varied development activities from what is now called DevSys, develop build and test through to release was invaluable to the rest of her career. She has continued this career path under different job titles and in different methodologies and varied languages but always believing that it is important to consider the whole development cycle from conception through to release, support and maintenance. This led over the last twelve years to a feeling of affinity with the agile development methodology. She has been actively involved in training and coaching internally throughout her career and but stepped out of her comfort zone to reach a wider audience within the community. Being part of the BBST training team, speaking at conferences and running workshops.
