November QASIG: Service Virtualization in Action: How Alaska Airlines tests for snow storms in July

#ServiceVirtualization | November 8 | QASIG-Seattle

Fall in Seattle

“Service Virtualization in Action: How Alaska Airlines tests for snow storms in July” is a QASIG-Seattle talk being presented by Ryan Papineau, Automated Testing Engineer at Alaska Airlines during the upcoming #QASIG #SeattleTech #Meetup at #Quardev | reserve your seat

Why did Alaska Airlines receive J.D. Powers’ “Highest in Customer Satisfaction” recognition for 8 years straight, plus the “#1 on-time major North American Carrier” award for the last 5 years? A large part of the credit belongs to their software testing team’s proactive approach to disrupting the traditional software testing process.

The team uses advanced test automation in concert with service virtualization to rigorously test their complex flight operations management application, which interacts with myriad dependent systems (fuel, passenger, crew, cargo, baggage, aircraft, and more). The result: operations that run smoothly—even if they encounter a snowstorm in July.

Attend this session to get a first-hand account of how Alaska Airlines leverages service virtualization to address common testing challenges and to learn Alaska Airlines’ best practices for managing the complexity of multiple dependent systems for testing.

About Our Speaker | Ryan uses systems engineering, cross-team collaboration, along with data analytics to provide complex test environments that behave like production.

About #QASIG Seattle

QASIG seeks to engage members of the high-tech community in discussions on the evolving challenges of software quality assurance and look at ways to advance the leading methodologies and best practices.

Challenges Ahead

As software development continues to evolve, the way in which we approach quality assurance and software testing must keep pace or become obsolete.

Consumers demand software that is available, reliable, and secure. It is important for us to continually re-evaluate the QA and testing processes we are employing and why we are using them.

We hope to explore these and many other questions facing the software development, quality assurance, and software testing industries in upcoming QASIG meetings and invite you to take part in the dialog.

PNSQC is next week – we hope to see you there!

The Pacific Northwest Quality Conference is next week, October 17-19, in Portland, Oregon and we are very excited to be attending and participating again!  We love this conference as it attracts a diverse audience from near and far and is such a great community with a size that enables us to meet new colleagues while also being able to reconnect with those we already know.

This year’s conference is centered on cultivating quality and includes two days filled with great keynotes, invited speakers, and position papers and one day of in-depth workshops. A bonus this year is that each day begins with coffee, tea, and yoga. Seems a great way to get centered and caffeinated for the day and ready to learn and connect with others dedicated to quality in software.

Some notable things we look forward to checking out:

  • Keynote: From Software Tester to Leader: How to Take a Radical Leap Forward at Work, Peter Khoury, Magnetic Speaking. An effective way to increase quality is to be heard and building communication and leadership skills is a great way to get there.
  • Leading Change from the Quality Team by John Ruberto, Concur. John recently spoke at our QASIG meeting and has some great ideas to share.
  • Dine Around Portland. Monday night heading out on the town to check out Portland’s vibrant foodie, wine, cocktail, and ice cream scene.
  • Quality: 2020, Brian Gaudreau. How to plan and be ready for the future of software quality.
  • And so many more!

We know we’ll come away energized as always and look forward to our time there next week. If you are attending stop by our table on Monday to say hi! Krista, Jeff, and Cindy will be there to chat about quality and of course, we’ll have our signature flip pads to give away so you can take notes in the sessions.

Check out the PNSQC Website to learn more about the program (and there’s still time to register if you haven’t yet!).

Stay tuned for our follow-up conference review!
