What's TestCamp

In creating this event we were inspired by all the successful initiatives in the local community that were meant to create communication paths between all IT Firms: Code Camp, Java User Group, Tabara de Testare and Management Forum.

This non-profit event will bring together more than 20 speakers and 300 aspiring or experienced testers.

In Test Camp we will be approaching topics from Web Testing, Embedded Testing, Database Testing and Quality, all in one day! By joining us you will have the chance to connect with Testing and Quality Experts from all testing fields.

Topics covered: Automation Testing, Test Management, Requirements Analysis in Test Case Design, Unit Test, Integration Test, User acceptance test, Agile and many others interesting subjects.

Our goals:

  • Create and help in further development of a Testing Community for employees and future employees;
  • We will encourage and facilitate the collaboration between software field and testing field.
  • Show the difference between Quality and Testing disciplines;
  • Explore testing in different environments (Web, Embedded, Database, Mobile ) and testing methodologies (Agile, V-cycle and Waterfall);
  • Find an answer for the question – Why testing is necessary?

Dealing with ambiguity - with Cristian Cotoi

Presentation summary:
In this era of accelerated technological evolution, we have to take
more and more decisions without having all the variables of the
equation.

Working with ambiguity is neither simple, nor quick, for either
experienced or junior testers.
In this session we’ll look at ambiguity from a different perspective,
debunk some myths revolving around it and see if we can turn this into a
positive thing.

A tester's journey to Continuous Delivery - with Ioana Stepanschi, Stefana Botezatu and Ioana Agapi

“We all probably heard how Continuous Delivery is about replacing the ancient Titanic releases with 10,000 speedboats; this presentation will bring a tester’s experience as a short walk-trough from the old time-consuming testing processes to the fast agile testing activities in Continuous Delivery pipeline.
Being involved from the beginning in this Continuous Delivery environment, we surely gathered a few best practices and lessons learned that we would want to share with you.
While the project grew, adding multiple streams, new rules, new dependencies, the challenges for the testing team brought us new learning opportunities and also a bunch of fun moments that made us feel and act like One Team.
Join us in this amazing journey”

Agility and Local optimization versus System optimization - with Camelia Codarcea

Presentation Description:
” In our daily lives and in our work we always want to optimize things. But do we know what optimization is, how many types of optimization are
there and the results we get when we apply each of them?
What kind of optimization is needed in agile environments, the ones we are focused on giving value to the customer?
Testing teams many times live the results of one of the optimizations.
Which one? Is it good or bad? Join me for this talk to find my view over optimization.”
