On Tuesday, May 3rd, at 8:30 am, Hans will lead a full-day tutorial titled “The Challenges of BIG Testing, Automation, Virtualization Outsourcing and More” where he will share his experiences and present strategies for organizing and managing testing on large projects. Hans will discuss how to design tests specifically for automation, including how to incorporate techniques like keyword testing and behavior-driven development.

Among the other takeaways include tips to stabilize automation and recommendations on how to manage the numerous versions and configurations common in large projects.

Hans’ final presentation of STAREAST takes place on Wednesday, May 4th at 11:30 am titled “Anti-Patterns for Automated Testing.” Hans will discuss anti-patterns, common responses to recurring problems that tend to be counterproductive, but that he nevertheless commonly sees in automated test design and that he feels inhibit scalability and maintainability. Attendees are encouraged to bring in their own anti-patterns and situations that are counterproductive toward achieving manageable and maintainable automation.
