Workshops Topic Details

Test Recommendation Engine using Machine Learning – Design your own Recommendation Engine to identify which Tests should be executed

As our regression pack is growing large day by day and there always been a case to shorten the QA cycle every time, we need something which ensures effective testing of the code.

To do this we need to be smart and identify the tests that only affects the system due to selective code changes. Doing this manually can become a nightmare.

Hence a test recommendation system is now a days a need of an hour. With changes in the code it can effectively pinpoint the tests that are affected and could be considered for a targetted regression.

In this workshop you will see / learn how to design this recommendation system which would predict the cases that you should run. You would see how can we come up with a model which can do so.


  • What are recommendation systems ?
  • What are the usecases where a recommendation system can be effective in a software development lifecycle ?
  • Our usecase
  • High level Architecure of the system
  • Tools required to build the system
  • Discuss some common ML Algorithm in a layman language
  • Code the system
  • Run the system
  • Understand how this can be deployed

Exploratory Testing is one of the most important skills testers should have. Despite fully knowing the significance of ET, it is often treated as an after-thought or simply as a type of testing one could do on top of everything else that had to be done. Simply relying on automated checks and testing acceptance criteria does not find us the information that stakeholders can use to make decisions about quality/risk. Often times testers struggle with making Exploratory Testing as a part of their test strategy or let’s say in Agile/DevOps teams they find it hard to fit ET in their testing activities. 

It is crucial to involve exploratory testing as early as possible in SDLC. And it is very much possible to do so.  Session Based Test Management is an approach to manage and structure Exploratory Testing. With SBTM approach testers can better plat ET and also evaluate how their testing efforts are organized. 


  • Steering clear of a mistaken notion of Exploratory Testing 
  • Understanding Session Based Testing and how it is done 
  • SBTM in action with practical examples 
  • Practicing SBT with hands-on exercise (creating charters, performing sessions) 
  • Overview of tools that support SBTM 
  • Review of the student work and feedback (selected few)

Automation is one of the challenges which Testers are facing every day and still most of us are unable to build a reliable script and create an environment where we can easily debug and resolve the issue, capture screenshots/videos of the entire flow, control the execution speed, store execution reports, handle flaky cases, and this list goes on and on.

We invest a lot of time to build the perfect framework as per our needs and we still end up scrapping it after a couple of years. So, I started looking for a tool that can take care of all the ad-hoc tasks and I can solely focus on adding test cases to my suite, and soon I stumbled upon Cypress.

Cypress is a tool that helps us to write Unit, Integration, and End to End test cases for UI and API. So it can be used by a Developer or a Tester.

Cypress is bundled with features like

  • Time Travel
  • Debug Capabilities
  • Automation Waiting
  • Spy/Stub API requests
  • Inbuilt screenshot and video capturing capabilities
  • Supporting cross-browser execution
  • Controlling browser resolution and much more 🙂

In this workshop, we will explore some of the Cypress features which are required to write stable automation scripts. We will be using Javascript as our base language and Mocha for writing test cases.


  • Creating test cases to interact with different UI elements and make API calls
  • Configuring Properties and Environment variables
  • Executing scripts on multiple environments
  • Spying/Stubbing XHR requests
  • Externalizing test data using fixtures
  • Integrating execution reports with Cypress Dashboard
  • Running scripts on multiple browsers

The responsibility for product quality often falls on software testers. Yet, software testers are often divorced or even excluded from conversations around the cheapest and easiest way to inject quality into the product and the entire software development life cycle, right from the beginning: robust unit test frameworks.

Sure, unit tests are the job of developers, and some developers and companies won’t even think about writing unit tests. So why should software testers know and be able to work with unit tests? As advocates for overall product quality, being able to analyze, discuss, and improve or ask for improvements in unit tests is one of the cheapest ways to advocate for product quality at the earliest stages in the software development process.

In this workshop, using an open source python repository, testers will learn:

  1. Why unit tests are important, and the typical problems in many unit-test frameworks
  2. How to find the unit tests in a code repository
  3. How to understand what unit testing library is used, by reading the code
  4. The main words to look for in unit tests in any language (x-unit testing frameworks) and what those words mean
  5. How to figure out what a unit test is doing
  6. The best questions to ask developers about unit tests
  7.  The best tests to add to the unit test framework so you don’t need to repeat efforts manually or in front-end automation
  8. How to lead the conversation when there is no or poor unit testing in your product

By the end of this hands-on workshop, testers will understand how to read source code, determine what tests are in the code, and work with developers and dev managers to help develop more robust unit testing frameworks and decrease manual and front-end test automation needs.

A complex product and very little time – you are called in to test it. How do you learn the product and structure your exploration to yield deliverables? Are you confident that you have covered every component or interaction? Applicable for any product/service, stand up for scrutiny and impress all.

There are several screens with multiple sections and each section is related to some other section across multiple screens. You are called in to test the product and after a few minutes of exploration, you discover that your mind is exploding with the combinations possible. How do you explore and document in a way that it is not just understandable to you but to every stakeholder? Which approach will help you cover the multiple interactions and also focus on the individual components right up to the field level?

These techniques are recommended for teams looking to strengthen their test design, improve overall system understanding and be ‘test ready’ for every change that is made to the product.


  • Introduction – establish objectives for the session 
  • Kipling’s method around modelling 
  • Three different ways of modelling a product 
  • Product coverage outline 
  • Data Flow Testing 
  • Different layers in modelling a product 
  • Least tapped resources for test idea generation, Exercises 
  • Q&A

You might have heard me talk a lot about how waits can improve the reliability of your Selenium automated tests. But maybe you did not clearly envision how you can apply them in your own tests. Or what specific wait methods can be created for specific page interactions. In this workshop I will go over lots of examples where we will update existing non-wait tests to use waits. We will see what makes sense to wait for in each example, and how we can create the best wait method to handle each scenario.

Whether you are a seasoned manager, a senior tester tasked with leading a team or a project, a prodigy that wants to get their career rolling, or simply someone who is serious about their professional development, you want to create a career that you are passionate about.

As your expertise grows, you are assigned a higher level of responsibility, and you are expected to demonstrate leadership in your daily work – in one way or another. That could be influencing, defining strategy, coaching or leading the team (whether your direct reports or your peers) in a new direction.

Also, your professional community is looking up to you – there are expectations to see you as a role model, a thought leader, a person who can share knowledge and teach others in the expertise they possess.

These new levels of responsibility sometimes leave you with questions: Am I doing the right thing? Am I really the expert people think I am? Do I possess the level of knowledge and skills that’s necessary to make right decisions? Am I applying my best in where I am or should I put my efforts elsewhere to achieve the career satisfaction I want and deserve?

This workshop is designed to help you identify your REAL strengths, take a close look at your leadership style, and equip you with the tools that will enable you to achieve your next career goals.


  • Discovering personal leadership style and traits
  • Identify career-related strategies for career progression or transition
  • Interaction to address career-related queries and challenges

Do you struggle to take notes?
Do you find it difficult to recall details from an important meeting?
Do you wonder if there was a better way to capture ideas and refer notes?

If you asked me these questions 3 years back, my answer to these 3 questions would have been a “Yes”.

I started learning Sketchnotes 2-3 years back and gradually produced work that saw millions of views on social media. I could use Sketchnotes creatively to simplify various aspects of my work.

Visual Thinking is an underrated and an often unexplored skill for professionals. We all are adept at growing our visual thinking capabilities yet we don’t know where/how to get started.
In this workshop, my mission is to help you reduce the fear of representing your ideas with simple drawings. I will using be an art form called Sketchnotes. Sketchnotes are rich visual notes created from a mix of handwriting, drawing, hand-drawn typography, shapes and visual elements like arrows, boxes, and lines.
By the end of this workshop, you will:

1. Understand the importance of Visual thinking.
2. Be able to create a few Sketchnotes on your own.
3. Understand how you can use Sketchnotes to differentiate your work.

Prerequisite: Pen and Paper is enough. A few colored pen and paper woube a plus. A digital note taking app, stylus is not mandatory but it can help, if available.


  • Why is Visual note taking important?
  • Fundamentals of Sketchnoting, Anatomy of a Sketchnote? Building Visual Vocabulary.
  • Sketchnoting for: 
    – Taking notes
    – Meeting minutes
    – Ideas generation.
    – Sprint plan

Description :

Gesture-driven devices changed the way we think about interactions. The success of mobile applications depends on how well the interactions are being implemented and in turn its user experience. Touch Actions were ruling the way we automate mobile gestures for quite a while. As of Appium 2.0, we are completely W3C compliant i.e. we have deprecated touch action in favor of Actions API from W3C specifications. In this workshop, we will take you through the ways in which you could automate mobile gestures with and without Appium Plugins.


  • Evolution of touch gestures

  • Intro to W3C Actions API

  • Non standard ways to automate gestures

  • Intro to Appium 2.0

  • Appium Gestures plugin


Digital Accessibility is no longer an afterthought. It has become an important facet in software design and engineering, given the rapid digital transformation that the world is witnessing. Also, it is no longer limited to just a specific accessibility group that is responsible in enabling digital inclusion. Right from business teams to developers to functional testers, everyone needs to be sensitized on what is accessibility and how to make it a reality in products built for end user consumption. Industry standards are easily available today for global consumption that define how to embrace digital accessibility in mobile and non-mobile worlds. This workshop will give the right first view into the world of accessibility where you will go back with an understanding of the varied guidelines of WCAG (one the leading global accessibility standards) along with test techniques, tools and practices.


Introduction: 20 mins

  • What is and Why Accessibility?
  • Accessibility in Today’s Context
  • Types of Disabilities

Guidelines: 40 mins

  • WCAG2.0/2.1 Guidelines with Examples (2.2. is also around the corner)

QE: 20 mins

  • Testing Process
  • Assistive Tools

Becoming a Code Listener – A products source code can help testers learn about risks, derive great test ideas, and identify factors which could significantly influence software’s performance, behavior, and utility. You don’t need to be a skilled programmer to become a great “Code Listener”.

The problem:
Testing projects are increasingly time constrained, no matter what the business, technical, organizational, or cultural context. I see many testers base their work exclusively on a products functionality. But testing is intractable. Even the simplest feature potentially has an infinite number of tests. I encourage testers to learn how to focus their efforts. “Code Listening” is a set of skills to help focus testing based on knowledge of software structure. “Code Listeners” sense risks impacted by change.

“Code Listeners” collaborate with programmers, architects and other technical stakeholders engaging in software design, testing, debugging, and troubleshooting – not just finding and reporting bugs.

The workshop:
In this workshop Rob will share several aspects of Code Listening walking through examples taken from real software development projects.


  • Understanding algorithms and program logic
  • Stack traces
  • Debugging and troubleshooting
  • Code walk-through
  • Static analysis variance
  • Source code churn
  • Program Flow and structure
  • Unit test code
  • Code coverage tools
  • Program variables and data types

By the end of this workshop testers will have applied code listening skills to discover many great test ideas. Delegates will be well positioned to collaborate with their peers in programming, architecture, and implementation, focusing on risks based on what is really changing in the source code.

The Backstory of Worqference & why is it happening?

Bit of a background Story, as it happened:

We first came across the concept of Workference (Blending Workshops and Conference) in 2019 when we saw an event where one of our Community Advisors and early Triber Paras was part of the organizing team. It was in the Community Tech space and since then we wanted to bring it to the Software Testing space, of course, with a touch of The Test Tribe.

But what was the need? The need apart from the novelty of the concept, why it really stuck the chord was so many conversations we all have with our colleagues where someone is always unhappy because lessons in Conference talks never leave Powerpoint and many of us find it difficult connecting the dots and bringing those learning back to our work. That is where Worqference (q is intentional 😉 ) scores the maximum. Yes, practical demonstration based learning, or nothing! 

So here we are! Bringing another Idea to life, a bit late, but it is happening. We are sure we are up for creating yet another wonderful and unforgettable experience for Testing Community.
