    'The automated acceptance testing paradox' draws on my experiences to help answer these questions by:

    * Investigating the role of 'Acceptance testing', what are they? and who deems them as 'Acceptable'?
    * The misconceptions around the benefits of Automated acceptance testing, ATDD and TDD.
    * The paradox of how the tools used in theses approach cannot completely determine a feature 'acceptable'.
    * Present the real benefits of TDD and ATDD and how they can sit alongside your test strategy in harmony to help create a more robust testing strategy.

    So if you are looking to get your automation out of the rut it is in or avoid it completely, looking to create a robust test automation strategy or find out where and why there is value in Automated acceptance tests and other automation in testing activities, then come learn about 'The automated acceptance testing paradox'.

    Tickets to the event are available here.

    The concept of ‘Automation in Testing’ is receiving publicity and triggering discussion. But what does it mean for those who already do a lot automated checking and for those who carry out a lot of exploratory testing? And how can ‘Automation in Testing’ help both?

    In ‘Programming & Exploring’, testers with different backgrounds, skills and experiences will work together through a series of practical exercises to learn how ‘Automation in Testing’ will benefit a team. Through encouraging exploration and automation, testers will pair up and collaborate on solving problems. Drawing on each other’s skills, we will discover ways to use automation to help support us in our testing, rather than attempting the impossible task of replacing testing with automation.

    If your focus is in exploratory testing and you are looking to learn more about where automation can help you,
    or if your focus is in automation and you are interested in adding value beyond building regression checking frameworks, then come along and see how ‘Programming & Exploring’ can help you.

    Demand for skills in testing IoT architectures is increasing as IoT devices grow in popularity. But what skills do we need? What do we need to know before diving into the brave new world of IoT? And what tools do we use?

    In ‘I turned it on with my laptop’ I will share my experiences as a developer and tester of IoT devices over the past year to demonstrate what went well, what didn’t and what I learnt. We’ll learn what is required to get launch you into IoT testing by exploring:
    * My own experiences of developing IoT devices and testing IoT devices
    * What makes IoT work and it’s architecture
    * The challenges we face as testers working with IoT
    * Skills and tools testers can focus on to help them with testing IoT
