Joel Oliveira

Joel Oliveira started his professional career in 1998 as a researcher and since then, he already assumed different roles (from developer to tester, from technical and project manager to quality and engineering manager), managing and leading teams from 1 to 130 engineers in business areas so diverse as telecommunications, government and public sector, financial services, defence and security or aerospace. In 2009, after a closer involvement with the software testing area, he founded the first online testing community in Portugal and one year later, the PSTQB – Portuguese Software Testing and Qualifications Board becoming a member of the ISTQB working groups in 2011. As a passionate about software testing & quality assurance, dedicated to improve recognition/proficiency of the testing community and eager to share his experiences, you can find him giving talks and workshops about software testing (manual, exploratory, automation, mobile, performance, security), engineering processes (waterfall, agile, continuous improvement and CMMI) or career management (mainly but not only for testers).

IoT? What does it means for Testers?

Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 8.4 billion connected things were in use worldwide in 2017, up 31 percent from 2016, and will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. Total spending on endpoints and services was estimated to reach almost $2 trillion in 2017.”
In other reports, depending on the definition of a “thing”, those numbers can be higher as 25, 30 or even 50 billion by 2020.
Nevertheless, no matter what definition you use, everyone agrees that IoT already moved beyond the initial hype and that who don’t use IoT, will fall behind.
So IoT could be is the next big thing on software development and testing of all time.
But what is IoT all about? And IIoT? Industry 4.0?
What do you need to know about it?
And even more important, what does it means for Testers? New challenges, new competences, new tools?
Join this talk to discuss what you should be prepared for, what new competencies and tools you will need to learn, what will change (or not) in your role as an IoT Tester.
