About speaker

Marcus has been in QA-related jobs since 2001, starting with Web Service testing and taking on UI testing using QTP and then Selenium. In the last few years, however, he’s broken into the world of feature-driven software development as an Engineering Manager at RetailMeNot, inc. He’s an avid piano player, plays bass for the RetailMeNot house band the WailSharks, and enjoys life in Austin, TX with his wife and two crazy boys.

About the talk

Break Up The Monolith: Testing Microservices - Mr. Marcus Merrell | Director of Technical Services at Sauce Labs, inc.

Microservices is more than a buzzword: it’s an industry-wide tidal wave. Companies are spending millions to break up monoliths and spin up microservices, but they usually only involve QA at the very end. This talk by Marcus Merrell centers around real-world experiences and will pose questions that attendees can ask their developers/product people, and offer solutions for teams to help make your service more discoverable, more testable, and easier to release. In this session, Marcus will cover:

- How micro is micro?

- Documentation & Contracts

- Versioning API Endpoints

- Cross-team communication/collaboration

- Definition of Done

- Feature Flagging

- Testing Pyramid

- When to Get Selenium Involved

- The Story of 13 Systems—The “Screenplay”

Attendees will leave this session with:

- A better understanding of testing microservices

- A host of questions to ask

- Ideas for how to get more involved in the development of microservices earlier in the project
