1.
AUTOMATION EXPERTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

We've brought the best speakers in the world to bring you the knowledge you need to stay ahead of the curve in the automation testing. Make sure to check out our all star lineup below!

2.
NO EXPENSIVE AIRLINE TICKETS OR HOTEL ROOMS

You need to keep learning. One of the most rewarding ways to do this is by attending conferences. Unfortunately, sometimes it's difficult to make it to a conference due to travel costs, the price of the conference ticket, or your ability to take time off. Save yourself heaps of time by not having to travel to a conference and try to be able to fit it into your busy schedule.

3.
LIFETIME VIEWING ACCESS

At traditional conferences many times you end up missing a session you really wanted to attend. Or you forgot something that the presenter mentioned. Watch each session as many times as you like!  

So you will be able to listen to the talks at your own pace.

4.
ACTIONABLE AUTOMATION AWESOMENESS

Not just powerpoint presentations - real world examples. Our goal is to have as many high quality screen share sessions where the presenter is actually showing real world examples rather than high level slides. 

5.
WATCH SESSION AT YOUR OWN PACE

With your paid registration, you’ll also have lifetime access to all the conference videos, so you can look back and watch on your own schedule. If you can’t make a Q&A session live, all live aspects of the conference will also be recorded and uploaded to the site within 48 hours.

In addition, you’ll receive access to the Automation Guild conference site and all its content for up to a year after the conference is over, affording you the opportunity to download it to your own device(s) where it can be kept for as long as you wish.


​The Automation Guild is awesome! Thankful for Joe putting the hard work into creating an amazing conference

Greg Paskal Director of Quality Assurance

​Great to hear you're planning on another conference next year..Thanks for doing this Joe. You have definitely hit a 'sweet spot' in our automation community and made us proud!

Blair Cavner Lead Software Test Engineer

​Thank you so much for organizing this conference, it was very informative and inspirational. I learned a lot that I will use to fix my code in accordance with the best practices. I met new people and discovered great new blogs and testing resources. Loved the format of the conference! 5 Days commitment is a big thing if you work, but the ability to watch presentation beforehand, or review later - was very helpful. As I said in the past -- devs at my company were jealous - they are looking for conferences in the same format. So thanks again, and looking forward to participate next year

Tatiana Birukova QA Engineer

I have been looking forward to this conference since I signed up in December. It far exceeded my expectations. Well done Joe!

Patrick Higgins QA Analyst

Thanks again for doing this conference. I'm SO happy to get this more advanced knowledge to help improve my automation. The training classes I've taken in the past have been more basic level, unfortunately, so it has been challenging to get this kind of information presented here this week. I've learned about new tools at this conference that I didn't even know existed. I'm looking forward to applying some of what I learned, when I get back to work next week.

Annette Stevenson Sr. Consulting in Software Automation

Thanks for the conference. It has been awesome! Best value I've seen in a testing/automation conference.

Tim Barrett Test Engineer

Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent work on the automation guild. I've viewed some very valuable sessions throughout the week and have already started planning on how to best use some of the concepts and ideas shared by the presenters.

Thomas Garcia Lead Test Automation Engineer

I could not have asked for a better way to start my year!  I had a great time at the Automation Guild Conference 2017 with Joe Colantonio where the panel of speakers consisted of some of the best & brightest of the industry. A big thank you to Joe! This was a great gift to the test community.

Session: If You Want To Automate, You Learn to Code (and learn to code well)

  • SESSION SUMMARY
  • BIO

In this talk, we're going to learn how we can learn to automate things. By things, I mean software. Very often, people take automating to mean "test automation," but we're not going to do that. We're going to talk about automating software. If that forms part of your test process, then that's great, so long as you do it well. We're going to make a distinction between automating tactically, and automating strategically; you can automate tactically without learning how to code, but if you want automate strategically, and maximize your chances of success, and have the maximum amount of flexibility when you approach the automating of the systems and processes and tasks that you're going to do, then you'll only get that if you learn how to code - and you'll only really succeed if you know how to code well.

Session: Keeping Your Cucumbers Sweet

  • session summary
  • bio

In this session we're going to explore one of the hottest topics that we come across when teams start to get to grips with Cucumber and BDD, and it's about how much detail to use in your scenarios. Many teams find they can't easily agree on this. They can often seem like a matter of personal preference, so it's quite subjective; and that can cause disagreement. It's true there aren't any right or wrong answers, but in this session, I'm going to demonstrate some principles that you can apply to help you make better decisions. We're going to work with some code that we developed at Cucumber for one of our training programs, and that we also use in our video series Cucumber School.

Session: Agile Automation

  • session summary

In this session Melissa covers, what she sees, as automation and its successful implementation, specifically in an Agile world. This particular content has been probably three or four years in the making, as she's worked in various companies, both large and small: startups, existing companies, legacy companies. There's always been this barrier, or obstacle, in what success, specifically around test automation, looks like. With the increased delivery and collaboration on Agile teams, she felt that after getting that information together, that this became a really good case study. The content that you're about to see now is a couple of years in the making, of what I think test automation in an Agile world looks like from success.
