Automate Everything
Human brains are often likened to computers, with learned skills and memories stored in the activity patterns of billions of nerve cells. However, when it comes to performing repetitive tasks, from a developer’s perspective, computers are quicker and much more consistent. There are quite a few mundane tasks we have to deal with as developers: infrastructure and environment setup, CI/CD pipelines, unit and end-to-end tests, to mention a few. Where do we start, what can we automate, and how can we do that?

Modern Network Config via Ansible Network Role
Ansible Network Role enables users to configure the network on the target machine. Various networking profiles, interface types and the advanced packets forwarding options can be configured via the Network role. Network role as Ansible module makes configuring networking setup for 1000 machines as easy as possible. Network role also necessitates better error handling and cleaner configuration.

On our journey, we are going to give an overview of the variables and the configuring options that are supported by the Network role. Beyond that, we are going to highlight some of the recently implemented features that may be interesting to the users, such as policy routing, various bonding options etc. At the end, we are going to explore the future roadmap in the network role, for example, supporting Nmstate in the Network role. In summary, our session will provide users with substantial benefits and supported features in the Network role.

The Tester’s Guide to Quality
After I was hired by my company, they assigned me to a project. Soon after I was introduced to the project, I quickly realized that there are a few -maybe lots of :)- improvement rooms. I will share my story which ended up in a successfully built quality.

With correct steps, we can see how quickly a quality process can be developed. But what is a quality process and how can we ensure quality? Does quality assurance equal to running tests? As you can guess, the answer is no. So we will talk about the components of quality assurance.

By means of the initiatives I have introduced, we experienced not only the quality of the product, but also the efficiency of the agile ceremonies and visibility of information. Since efficient communication is a key player of quality assurance just like everything else, we will talk about conducting daily meetings in the best way.

No track of bugs
No feedback cycle on tests
No transparency of the progress
No organized feature
No metrics, no idea about coverage
Escaped bugs
Massive manual effort

Bugs Management initiative
Test Review initiative
Short and very understandable progress reports
Feature Housekeeping initiative
Monitoring, Traceability
Pulling QA in Early Stages
Automation: Common Locators, Parallel Running, Reporting Dashboard

Attendees will be able to see:
Ways to collect insights from bugs
An approach in which feedback to designed tests from the product owners is encouraged
An lovely animated progress report
How we can increase visibility of features
Track various metrics to maintain a continuous improvement
How we achieved to shift left
