More than 100 developers and QA professionals turned out at Brightcove for a discussion on automated testing. The presentations covered what should be automated, as well as tools and best practices for delivering quality software. 

William Josephson, co-founder of Solano Labs kicked off the night with thought leadership on high performing teams. Get the facts and more from William's presentation below. 

 
 
Keith Williams from Brightcove discussed balancing and the benefits of automated testing across component testing, API testing, and web driver testing (browser based testing). View Keith's presentation below. 
 
Pivotal Labs, a full-service development shop is just opening it’s Boston office. Pivotal believes their success is due to pair programming and test driven development. David Tengdin, Software Developer at Pivotal explained that their developers own code from development to production. Automated testing gives them confidence that things are working.  View David's presentation below. 
 
 
 
Steve Brunner, Director of Quality Development at InterSystems, revealed that they develop a lot of code to test a lot of code. Check out David's presentation for a lot of best practices. 
 


Lastly, Barry Jaspan, Senior Architect at Acquia, spoke about testing infrastructure instead of the applications. The days of manual configuration by sysadmin are over. Testing has to be automated, fast and run as a clone of the production environment. Cloud is awesome for this! Don't think it's going to work if you haven't tested it! Check out Barry's presentation for what to test around the infrastructure. 
Thanks to everyone for joining us, and thanks to our software development cluster sponsors: AutoDesk, Dyn, InterSystems, Rally Software, Snowbound Software, Verivo and VMware.  And lastly, thanks to Brightcove for hosting – great facility!
