    Welcome and a small intro from the organizers

  • 19:00 - 20:00 Comprehensive Testing Strategies: navigating the levels of testing.

    Greetings from Sponsors and the Noemi's presentation: Understanding and effectively implementing the different levels of testing, avoiding test repetition across them, can be a daunting task for many developers and testers. In this presentation, we will explore the various levels of testing and provide insights into their correct usage. We will cover the definitions and differences between API, integration, service testing, system testing and end to end testing, including headless and GUI browser testing. By the end of this presentation, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the various levels of testing, their specific applications, and how to implement them correctly. Armed with this knowledge, developers and testers will be better equipped to design robust testing strategies that enhance software quality and mitigate potential risks, ultimately leading to more reliable and successful software systems.

  • 20:00 - 20:15 Break

  • 20:15 - 21:00 Navigating the Risks: Leveraging Selenium and AI for Enhanced Testing and Learning.

    Greetings from Sponsors and the Diego's presentation: In this talk, we will explore the risks associated with integrating AI into testing processes while highlighting the learning opportunities that arise from combining Selenium and AI technologies. Through some examples, we raise awareness about potential pitfalls such as bias and interpretability issues, encouraging attendees to make informed decisions and adopt mitigation strategies. Simultaneously, we showcase how AI augments Selenium's capabilities, enabling more efficient test case generation and defect discovery. Attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of the delicate balance between risk and opportunity when leveraging AI in Selenium-based testing frameworks, empowering them to optimize their testing practices and foster continuous learning.
