NYC Metro Selenium Users Meetup 03/15/12
Dev + Ops = DevOps --> QA + Ops = QaOps
Chris Hoey, Senior IT Manager at Wireless Generation, will share some of the surprising ways Selenium has brought value to his company outside of the testing function.
Chris began his career at Wireless Generation as a Lead QA engineer responsible for writing many of the Selenium tests. When he transitioned over to Operations, he decided to carry the tests over to see new life not previously thought of.
This included periodically benchmarking applications from tests, helping customer care debug browser specific issues seen on their site and playing back the tests into a jmeter proxy to extend the tests into load testing scripts. It also spawned a new name (coined by Chris) to describe the joining of these two groups - QaOps.
