Effective test automation can help you speed up time to market and build quality in. However, when we start implementing test automation, we usually require multiple application to accept a specific business feature, especially with a microservices architecture. There is a mismatch in the software design and the value stream of the business that gets test automated. The misaligned comes from software that is logically designed instead of functionally. Ending up with decoupled software, but coupled test automation. Join us in this workshop to show you how test automation with the help of Domain-Driven Design (DDD) patterns and tools can help design functional cohesive applications. We introduce you to the bounded context pattern and how, as a test automater, it can support you in your work. With the help of EventStorming, we will make your test automation visible and gain new insights. Insights that will help your team improve its software design to a more functional cohesive application aligned with test automation and business value flow. You will leave the talk with an understanding of DDD and how EventStorming will help you tomorrow to improve your test automation.

Kenny and João, both working as trategic software delivery consultants at Xebia, will host their masterclass B2 “Decoupling test automation with Domain-Design Design bounded context patterns” on Tuesday September 22, as one of the hands-on masterclasses that day.

About Test Automation Days
Test Automation Days is a unique two day conference focused on test automation. In 2020 we will celebrate our 10th anniversary on September 22 & 23 in Jaarbeurs, Utrecht, The Netherlands.The first day will be focused on opportunities for the attendees to learn by doing! A tutorial/workshop day full of half-day workshops, where tools, technologies and innovative practices flourish! The workshops will give novice, medium-experienced and advanced test automation engineers the opportunity to gain and share their experiences.
The second day will be more focusing on exchanging ideas and tips through talks and presentations, including master classes of two hours for more hands-on experiences.
