Workshop Continuous Integration & Test Automation

English - German

We all want to improve the speed and quality of our software development work…

…And this workshop shows you the fast-track to doing so

Time and time again, we hear long-suffering software development professionals say the same things.

- “I want to start releasing higher quality products, faster – but how?”
- “I wish my team had the skills to automate testing so that we could boost our productivity and grow our market presence.”
- “I’m getting really tired of having to fix everyone else’s bugs and sloppy code! I have so many other things to do!”
- “Test automation seems to work for other people – every time I try it, it seems like I’m not enjoying the same benefits as others. But why?”

If these sound familiar then this workshop is for you!

In This Workshop, We’ll Show You How to…

Join Us on A Deep Dive into the World of Automation

This workshop doesn’t just teach you about the broader world of Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Test Automation – sometimes called Continuous Testing – and automated tests. This is a comprehensive workshop that will give you a high-level overview of all the following:

Automated GUI Testing ¦ Automated API Testing ¦ Specification by example techniques (Model Testing) ¦ Automated Performance Testing ¦ Unit Testing ¦ Test Driven Development ¦ Automated Regression Testing ¦ Manual Testing / Exploratory Testing ¦ Continuous Integration & Deployment ¦ Pair Programming and Code Reviews ¦ Complexity Analysis ¦ Handling Legacy Code ¦ Linting and static program analysis ¦

We Make Learning CI and Test Automation Fun

As a workshop, we’ve designed a collaborative, hands-on experience where your own work and ideas drive the content. This is not a passive workshop where you watch PowerPoint presentation after presentation.

Instead, we’ll be leveraging GitLab, IDE, and the humble whiteboard to communicate and share ideas, creating a dynamic workshop environment with other attending professionals.

We will also provide plenty of time for breaks, so you can get to meet everyone and share experiences – this is a great opportunity to network, as well as gain an understanding of how other organizations and teams have solved problems you are facing.

Meet the Workshop Leaders You’ll Be Working With

Falko Schmidt & Henrico Dolfing. We have worked together on a number of software development projects for clients like PwC and Helsana. Falko in the role of the lead developer and test automation specialist, Henrico as project coach and project recovery manager. 

Falko Schmidt

I'm a full-stack software engineer with a current focus on web applications and the front end in particular. A passion for automation is the reason I chose this profession. For the last ten years, I've experienced how test-driven development delivers highly stable and maintainable software. While I had to witness failure due to the lack thereof, I mostly had the pleasure to work in agile teams that embraced the idea of test automation principles.


Henrico Dolfing

I have worked in many different roles in software development projects for the last 15 years, from which almost a decade as an independent project recovery consultant. My company, Data Solutions, advises companies in the financial sector on large IT and financial modeling projects. My expertise in software development and experience with agile processes and techniques allow me to rescue projects that are in critical phases on the verge of failure and lead them back to success.

Who Will Gain the Most Benefit from This 2-Day Workshop?

This course has been designed to help software developers, solution architects. financial modelers and actuaries, test managers, DevOps team members, CTOs, and software project managers seeking to understand development processes better.

With that said, it is open to anyone who would like to join us. IT professionals with expertise in delivering software with high-quality aren’t just highly employable – they’re also valuable.

Our workshop offers attendees a new insight and understanding, giving them a greater understanding of continuous integration and test automation and its place as an essential part of modern software development and design.
