We know that quality and creating excellent user experiences should be a priority for software teams. But, navigating the cultural change and talent requirements needed to focus on quality engineering can be daunting.
To do this, QA must expand their roles to encompass quality engineering - taking on a strategic role managing software quality. The result is software teams focused on user outcomes that have a quantifiable impact on our products and businesses. Join Experience 2021 to learn how to leverage testing technology to the fullest while transforming your team and processes to support quality engineering.
Quality Engineering: The Heart of Transformation
Cloud, DevOps, and customer expectations are transforming software development faster than ever before. Quality engineering is helping teams navigate those changes, deliver new products faster without sacrificing quality, and harness data to improve the entire development process. In this keynote, explore how teams are adopting quality engineering, and learn how to expand QE in your own organization.
How to Maintain Excellent Test Coverage
How do we know we have sufficient test coverage? How much do we really need? In this session, Adeeb Valiulla and Geoff Cooney will share why test coverage is a critical metric for QE teams, and the strategies Adeeb employs to grow coverage, and create better user experiences.

Managing People and Processes in QE
Quality Engineering is a team sport. Without the right collaboration strategies and proper processes in place, it can become difficult to maintain quality and product velocity. Join Janet Bracewell, Andrea Wood, and Jessica Mosley as they unpack what a culture of quality means to them, and how their teams, and customers benefit.
The Impact of Integrating Testing into Development
We all know that continuous testing is key to shipping high-quality software. Between strategies such as shift-left and shift-right, how do teams prioritize the right strategies to help you achieve continuous testing? In this fireside chat with Mike Schober and Izzy Azeri, Mike will share the strategies to shift your testing, how to drive change across your development team, and how to overcome challenges faced along the way.
Understanding the Pillars of Quality Engineering
Quality engineering is gaining steam as an industry term across software teams. But what does it actually mean, and how is it different from quality assurance? In this session, Darrel Farris, Damon Paul, and Andy Hogan will share a framework that defines what it means to practice quality engineering, along with real-life examples. Then, we’ll split up into three discussion groups to share strategies for quality engineering adoption.
Chef Tiffani Faison is the award-winning chef and owner of Boston restaurants including Sweet Cheeks, Tiger Mama, Fool’s Errand, and Orfano. Join the community in this live cooking demonstration. Attendees will receive the grocery list ahead of time so you can follow along!
Increasingly, software teams are having to deliver faster while maintaining quality. To help teams build quality software, our number one job has always been to help teams easily create, execute, and maintain their tests. In this session, we’ll highlight all of mabl’s recent releases to help your team create better user experiences, and what’s to come.
Integrating Automated Testing into CI Environments
In this talk, Alex Marchini - Senior Test Engineer at BitSight - will explain how their team has integrated automated tests into their continuous integration environment. He will discuss the team's philosophy for setting up test environments, as well as how they create mabl tests that run efficiently in a testing pipeline.
Automating testing to scale with a fast growing business
At Chewy, the most trusted and convenient online destination for pet parents, our growth over the last few years left us with a test process that didn’t scale. We relied on manual testing and a set of tools that no longer met our needs. Learn about how Chewy changed its practices and brought in mabl to meet its evolving needs.
Set Up Your Workspace for Success
Whether you’re new to mabl, or a seasoned user, good workspace hygiene is critical to your team’s testing success. In this interactive session, Damien will share best practices for organizing your workspace, creating effective tests, and understanding test results. Sign in to your own mabl workspace and follow along!
Testing isn’t technically supposed to have stages. But it helps us imagine an ideal test execution scenario across our software development lifecycle. In this session, Joe will share how to approach testing across four distinct phases of development. He’ll share who should execute which tests, where and when those tests should be executed, why it’s important, and how you can leverage mabl at each development phase.
With the growing importance of ensuring excellent user experiences, end-to-end tests are critical to preventing bugs from affecting your users. Jeff Zupka will walk through how to use mabl to build and optimize effective end-to-end tests using mabl. Attendees will also learn how to integrate all functional tests such as API, email, and PDF into their tests.
How to Become Data-Driven
Data is incredibly important to making informed decisions about our quality strategies - and there is an incredible amount of it at our fingertips. In this session, learn how to harness the test data at your fingertips to make data-driven decisions. You’ll learn how to set up your workspace to capture the data you need, and leverage BigQuery to structure your data in an actionable manner.

Tackling complex application testing with automation
Stack Overflow is a mature product with a rich history, and legacy, among the software development community. As Stack has grown over the last 13 years, some of the benefits that have arisen are that users can arrive at an answer to their questions in a number of ways, and the community members have a variety of ways in which they can participate with each other. While this is very desirable, it does lead to complex pathways that users can navigate, and even small changes can have a ripple effect. The Stack Overflow Team had been relying on manual testing for the Teams product for some time but realized they could do a much more effective job by bringing in test automation. In this session, Dale and Meredith will talk about how they automated testing as much as possible, the importance of democratization of testing, how they applied DRY principles to test creation, and how they trigger tests within the release pipeline.
The role of a software tester is rapidly evolving, and quality engineering has become a diverse field with a variety of career paths. Unfortunately, recognizing career opportunities isn’t always as obvious as we’d hope. In this session, the esteemed group of panelists will share their best advice for navigating this changing field and creating new opportunities for yourself.
