Free event will unpack  Burstable Testing for automated and manual QA

May 7th, 2020. Tallinn, Estonia, and Austin, TX. Today Testlio Inc., the leader in managed app testing, announced their participation in SauceCon Online, a multi-track virtual conference for the global testing community.

During the conference, QA industry veteran and Testlio Sr. Engagement Manager, John Ruberto, will unpack the concept of burstable testing – a fundamental tenet of networked testing and a fresh approach to web and mobile app quality assurance. John will explain how remote, on-demand testers work alongside automated scripts to glide between active and idle states, bursting into action only when necessary and in times of engineering team dormancy. This human/machine partnership maximizes the speed, efficiency, and quality of the testing process. 

We’re thrilled to have Testlio involved with SauceCon Online,” said Terri Avnaim, chief customer and marketing officer, Sauce Labs. “Even as we shift to a virtual-only conference for 2020, we’re as committed as ever to helping our attendees test better with insight they can immediately put into practice in their own organizations, and the support and engagement of experts like John makes that possible.

To bring the real world into his two 30-minute sessions (link to register for the free live broadcasts), John will share the story of how a top-10 television network embraces burstable testing within their “shift-left” philosophy to better align with their CI/CD efforts. He’ll walk through the scenario in which the network combines Sauce Labs automated suites with Testlio’s global team of on-demand testers to tackle functional, location, and livestream testing. 

The popular TV network profiled (and revealed at the event) is a perfect example of machines and humans working in parallel to swarm the testing surface in short bursts. This approach not only quickly identifies issues, but it also delivers rapid results. The audience will walk away with actionable ideas and best practices.” – John Ruberto, Sr. Engagement Manager, Testlio
