I got a chance to present a talk at the World Test Engineering Summit organised by 1.21GWS @ Bangalore last week and it sure was a great opportunity! My talk title was
“Layers of Test Automation” wherein I presented about test automation framework creation and best practices on creating a sustainable framework. The talk was appreciated and I had great personal feedback and chats with many delegates.
It was amazing to share the stage with renowned speakers like Mrs. Renu Rajini, Mr. Mostafa Awadh from Egypt, Shivaji Raju , Sanjay Kumar and many more.
My team at Sahi Pro also decided to partner with the event and setup a demo booth, where my colleagues Pratik and Satish showcased an informative demo of Sahi Pro tool and all of its awesome capabilities. The Sahi Pro booth was a hit, appreciated by the inquisitive participants. We also held a Quiz for people visiting the booth, and the winners were awarded with fun goodies at the end of the day!
Here is a glimpse into the event-

I am pleased to announce that I will be speaking at the upcoming ‘World Test Engineering Summit’ being organised by 1.21GWs at Bangalore. It sure is an impressive lineup of speakers and I am glad to be a part of it! Check out the details of the event here-
“Layers in Test Automation – Best Practices for Separation and Integration”
About my topic –
“Often a testing team consists of a mix of subject matter experts, some manual testers and testers with some automation experience. Writing tests in the language of the business allows all stake holders to participate and derive value out of the automation process. If you are a nervous beginner or an expert at test automation, you need to know and understand the layers of test automation and how to separate the code from the test. Let us discuss the best approaches and practices for creation of a robust automation framework with correct separation as well integration of these layers. We will also see a demo on how to implement this with a case study!“
Also, Sahi Pro is partnering with the event and setting up a demo booth at the event! So, we’ll have our team there to showcase the capabilities of the unique tool and answer all questions.
Be sure to stop by the booth to chat and catch a demo!

I was recently invited to speak at the World Quality Summit 2017 organised by UNICOM at The Leela Palace, Bangalore. The event saw attendees from many teams from Pune, Gurgaon and the city itself who participated in the Quality Olympiad. It was a good mix of audience and lots of interesting talks and discussions during the sessions.
I spoke on the Practical risks in Agile teams and Ways how testers can help build-in continuous quality in Agile projects.It was a great experience, met some great people and enthusiastic teams and got awarded the Thought leadership Certificate by UNICOM!
I had the chance to partner with UNICOM recently to help plan out a new event called NFTCon 2016 (Bangalore)- i.e.Non Functional Testing Conference 2016.
It was a niche idea for a one-of-its kind event catering specifically to non-functional testing, with main focus on Performance , Security & Usability testing along with Accessibility and Reliability testing. It was designed to be a 2-day event with 2 tracks on each day, with many great speakers, some wonderful round table talks and a zealous audience.
I was also felicitated by the nice team at UNICOM for my contribution to the event and chairing one of the tracks. It was such a nice gesture and kind words, I thank the team for their efforts and I look forward to our next association pretty soon! 🙂
I recently received an invite to the prestigious event STeP-IN Summit 2016, since my training company was one of the Gold sponsors of the event. It is an annual event organized in Bangalore by the STeP-IN Forum, and the workshops also extended to the cities of Hyderabad and Pune where the forum has its local chapters.
The event was a full-house with 400 delegates, 35 speakers and meet and greet sessions. Though I happened to attend only one day of the 2-day event, it was a great experience listening to some amazing keynote speakers and talks. One talk by Mr. Wolfgang Platz from Tricentis on ‘Ninja or Samurai? The Art of War and the Future of Testing‘ was an definitely an eye opener into the future of our industry. The event also saw some excited participants from across the country for the Automation Contest where the best minds came together to live up to the challenge.
I also had a chance to attend a pre-conference workshop on Exploratory Testing by Ajay Balamurugadas, which was a good hands-on session on practical aspects of testing.
When I heard about the ATA-Global Gathering event happening in Bangalore , I was super-excited to be a part of it! So, I sent my proposal to Nitesh from UNICOM and Tushar from ATA who are both great at organizing such great events. They liked it and voila! I was in the Speakers list on the site 🙂 check it out –
My session went great and was very well received by the audience. We talked about Gamification of Agile teams and had some awesome volunteers playing fun games with us. The audience was totally engaged in the session and we got great feedback! 🙂 🙂 Here is a peek into the highlights of the day –
