Techniques for Generating and Managing Test Data - Omose Ogala
Many times, automated tests fail because of assumptions about the state of the application; essentially making test data management a headache for teams. This is especially problematic when working with applications whose data is dynamic.
In this session, Omose, a recent college grad, will share a fresh perspective on test data management. He will discuss techniques that he uses to generate reliable test data within a fraction of a second, hacks that he places into production code to make the application more testable, and tools available within his company that make testing easier.
These techniques prove particularly useful for testing and automating against applications that are dynamic in nature.
