New technologies, methodologies, and tools constantly evolve to help development teams build better software, but it’s testing that remains an integral component to achieving this goal. To accelerate development and bring great ideas to market faster, organizations need continuous testing and delivery — which are just two of the many themes taking center stage at this year’s second annual SauceCon 2018 user conference on March 1-2, 2018 in San Francisco.

This is our second user conference here at Sauce Labs, the cloud-based platform for continuous testing of web and mobile applications. The shift to continuous testing is challenging, especially for larger organizations, which is why we’re is looking to host our global community of Saucers and testing experts from around the world.

At last year’s inaugural conference, attendees learned from their peers and industry pundits, leaving the conference with the knowledge and know-how to test at scale and meet the demands of today’s development. The three-day event filled with training, workshops and best practices was successful, showcasing real-world stories from Applitools, Salesforce, Yahoo, Code.org, Accenture, Twitter and USAA.

SauceCon 2018: Topics and Speakers

This year, SauceCon attendees will learn about the latest trends and receive practical tips they can put to immediate use in their own testing practice.They’ll also be able to listen to compelling talks and conversations that highlight why continuous testing is the key to creating today’s digital experiences. This year’s user conference is shaping up to be better than last year’s inaugural event, and we’re excited to bring together developers and the testing community for two days of knowledge-sharing and candid conversation.

One of the speakers this year is testing industry veteran Julian Harty, the author of the Mobile Analytics Playbook and contributor to the highly successful Mobile Developer’s Guide to the Galaxy. Julian has been actively involved in many aspects of testing and development of mobile apps globally since 2006, with experience working for Google, eBay and others. He has also contributed to open source apps and test automation including Selenium, and in his spare time, he works to promote accessibility, including developing software to assist visually impaired individuals with reading.

At SauceCon, Julian will be able to help SauceCon attendees gather and use data from various sources, including bug reports, reviews, tweets, and in-app feedback and analytics. His presentation this year will cover practical and logistical aspects of how to use data to test the tools and processes and in turn, improve the apps we test.

Testers, developers and IT professionals will meet and network with other subject-matter experts in the testing community, including some of the biggest and brightest in testing, continuous delivery, and mobile-app testing. These leaders represent some of the largest names in business, media, and technology, with speakers from Apple, Twitter, USA Today, JPMorgan Chase, Buzzfeed, Uber and GitHub. 

Additional participants include Dan Cuellar, creator of Appium; Jason Huggins, creator of Selenium and Sauce Labs’ co-founder; Angie Jones, senior automation engineer at Twitter; Ian Feather, principal software engineer at Buzzfeed and Meghan Lewis, quality engineer at GitHub. 

In addition, attendees have the option of taking a workshop on February 28, which is focused on Selenium, Appium and other advanced use cases.
