Julia Pottinger

Automation Guild was an amazing experience for me. It was a wealth of knowledge being shared. Everyone was supportive.

I definitely learned a lot and it showed me a wide range of techniques that can be applied to make testing better.

One of THE best conferences I have attended. From the content to the community interaction - AMAZING!

Julia Pottinger

Training & Development Manager

Automation Guild is timely, practical, and community led.

Unlike in other conferences, the talks favor demos and techniques over abstract philosophies and marketing.

I would highly recommend Automation Guild as a great way to learn new things and network with other testing professionals.

Nicole Van Der Hoeven

Developer Advocate (Perf. Testing)

But that's not all...

You'll Also Gain Instant Lifetime Access To Our 24/7 Active Slack Community of 2000+ Skilled Testers!

I know that the majority of the time it feels like the managers just don't “get it” when it comes to the testing side of things.

With most testers reporting to different people, it’s natural to feel fractured from your community.

And for a lot of folks who are sole testers at their firm, it's even more lonely.

Look - you can always make your own mistakes and learn on our own…

But having a community to fall back on makes achieving your goals - much easier and a lot faster.

Because it provides a space for like-minded testers to learn from each other’s mistakes and shorten their learning curve - by months (or even years).

That’s why with Automation Guild, I built a community of testers - from beginners to advanced - ready and willing to genuinely help each other grow.

And that’s been one of the biggest game-changers for them.

Here's what industry veterans say about the Automation Guild community...

I've been doing testing automation for 21 years and I really enjoyed the Automation Guild.

I really like that I got back into latest industry trends. The conference was really well organized and there was a wide variety of applicable topics.

I'm also really enjoying the Slack community and the ability to communicate with test automation experts from all around the world, year-round.

Overall, I found that Automation Guild was really great and I have a lot of ideas that I can apply to my work.

Michelle Pleas

Principal Test Engineer

You think you know everything, and then you find our you really do know just a small part of the equation.

Having testers in the Slack channel giving ideas and pointers has helped me immensely in expanding my range of knowledge and acceptance of tools that can make the wheels turn even better.

Charlie Harris

Senior Quality Assurance Manager

Just like these testers, you can also leverage the Automation Guild community as a 24/7 resource for you to:

➤ Get constant feedback on what you’re currently working on
➤ Identify what technologies other companies are working with
➤ Network with experts from all over the world (year-round)
➤ Discover the most in-demand skills to focus on
➤ Find quick solutions to technical (and career-related) problems

So if you don’t want to waste any more of your time on flaky tests…

Or jump from forum to forum searching for answers…

Or sift through 10 different articles trying to find a solution…

And would like to create consistently better, faster, and reliable automation moving forward...

Speed Up Your Cypress Tests With Cy.Request

Many people have discovered that UI test automation with Cypress is fast and easy.

But did you know there's a way to make your tests even faster?

Cypress has a built-in feature called cy.request that allows you to easily make API requests.

API requests are much faster and more reliable than UI interactions, so it's a great idea to learn how to use them in your tests.

In my presentation, I'll be taking a suite of UI automated tests and refactoring them to use API calls. You'll see just how easy it is to make your automation lightning fast!

Speedtest for automations

Why should we care if our automation is fast?

In these continuous, agile, and crazy days, our pipelines need to keep flowing constantly. Non-stop streams may flood the dev towns around them if they get blocked.

In this session, Leandro will help you understand why we want to ensure we have fast automation. By measuring the speed of their executions, not the speed of the software tested like in performance testing days but testing the speed of the automation themselves.

The audience will learn some tips while automating to ensure the created automation are blazing fast.

And last, some stories of how it should look when we all agree that a happy continuous world is full of blazing-fast and parallel-able automation.

Turn It Up! Increase The Volume On Your Automation

Understanding the existence and basics of High-Volume Automated Testing (HiVAT) can enhance your ability to add automation coverage.

In most current software delivery teams, there is some amount of automation created to help with testing tasks. From bare-bones smoke test suites to deep regression suites to special-purpose, proprietary tools, the use of machines to help us test is nearly omnipresent.

That said, most of the automation we create is based on traditional test cases. Typically, there is some, or a lot, of value in this approach to automation, but there are additional techniques.

Enter, High-Volume Automated Testing; this is not load or performance testing.

Defined as “a family of testing techniques that enable the tester to create, run and evaluate the results of arbitrarily many tests”, High-Volume Automated Testing (HiVAT) is a way of repurposing our existing automation and the techniques with which we are familiar while adding new approaches to extend our existing automation coverage.

During this session, Paul Grizzaffi shares the basics of HiVAT, including discussing the original work by Dr. Cem Kaner, Harry Robinson, and Andy Tinkham, supplementing with HiVAT examples from his own experience.

Be Shifty and Shift-Everywhere

You may have heard of “shift-left” or “shift-right” being essential to successfully preventing defect slippage in today's application development landscape.

In fact, the 2021-2022 World Quality Report cites that 55% of respondents stated that they need to “shift-left” more, and 53% of respondents stated that they need to “shift-right” more.

This session is going to focus on the Micro Focus point of view, that we need to “shift-everywhere”, both left and right, but not abandon the lessons we’ve learned so far in testing.

Modern Integration Testing for Everyone with Testcontainers

Unit testing is fine, but without proper integration testing, especially if you work with external resources like databases and other services, you might not know how your application will actually behave once it has been deployed to the real production environment.

Before Docker, configuring the environment for integration testing was painful – people were using fake database implementations, mocking servers, usually it was not cross-platform as well. However, thanks to Docker, now we can quickly prepare the environment for our tests.

In this talk, I would like to show how you can use Testcontainers ( ) – a popular OSS JVM testing library that harnesses Docker to easily, reliably, spin up test dependencies.

As a special focus, we want to have a deeper look at the development and the addition of new features to the Testcontainers library in the recent past. But that’s not all, we will also share an outlook at the horizon of the future of Testcontainers and might even get a glimpse at some brand new features that are currently in active development.

In Search of the Best Pokémon: Browser Automation & Load Testing In One Script With k6

Being a tester is like being a pokémon trainer: we want to choose the right pokémon for the job. The problem with doing different types of testing is that we also end up with multiple scripts in different languages and testing tools. We end up choosing a squad of pokémon: one for unit testing, one for automation testing, one for load testing, and so on. Making sure they all work together is a task in itself!

But what if we could just use one? What if we only needed one Mega-evolved pokémon that could fulfill multiple roles? Is it really possible to write a browser automation script and then reuse it for load testing?

In this talk, I will talk about my search for the elusive one pokémon that does multiple jobs, the advantages of hybrid load testing, and how to pick pokémon that make our life as trainers and testers easier.

Accounting for Requirements Engineering in Test Automation

Software testing is often considered a side activity, almost a “necessary evil”.

With the acceleration of software development lifecycles along with higher dependency on software in business and private environments, software testing is facing new challenges of increased workload.

More and more companies decide to face these challenges with the help of test automation.

This raises new questions: What should we automate? Can we keep the test assets we created over the last decade? Who will develop the tests?

Like with any development, test automation needs a firm foundation made of requirements.

In this session, we will look at some techniques for requirement elicitation related to test automation, and discuss how collaboration within the team can be improved.

Real Talk on Cross-Browser Testing

It’s 2022, and cross-browser testing (CBT) is as important as ever. Our apps need properly-responsive layouts to handle the myriad of platforms and screens in our digital world. I’ll be straight, though: CBT at scale is a challenge. Just like any facet of testing, it requires risk-based planning and a well-engineered implementation.

In this talk, I’ll share my real experiences with CBT. We’ll cover pros and cons of different strategies for choosing browsers, building versus buying infrastructure, and optimizing execution with visual testing techniques. I’ll share my experiences on aspects like speed, reliability, and maintenance, too. After this talk, you’ll be able to make awesome choices for your modern CBT needs!

OpenTelemetry in your tests

Testing data is a gold mine that is rarely explored when discussing software quality and best development practices. Tens of thousands of tests might be executed in your CI pipelines day by day, generating a massive amount of data for you effortlessly. Right now, this data is lying around without producing you any value, but — what if you could harness this data to accomplish something?

If you used it correctly, you could be able to, for example, detect test flakiness, notify the right people about failures, and much more. All you have to do is capture this data and turn it into insight using an instrumentation layer.

You can add this instrumentation layer on top of the jUnit de-facto standard for test reports. By doing this, you will be able to send traces and metrics to a backend using another standard, OpenTelemetry, and explore that information from there in whatever manner it is helpful for your interest.

A Holistic Approach To Salesforce Test Automation

In this talk, Mala will share a holistic view of the challenges of traditional software testing in the complex Salesforce testing ecosystem and provide a roadmap for leaders to overcome implementation roadblocks in partnership with R&D teams.

Finally, Mala will demonstrate how an investment of a DevOps solution with a Sauce Labs integration helped her agile team achieve time reduction of up to 50% for overall flow, while doubling release velocity without additional headcount.

If you are a manager looking to scale end-to-end testing coverage and/or wondering how to take a holistic approach to Salesforce test automation, you won’t want to miss this leadership session.

Testing for Accessibility: How Tos and Hurdles

In this talk, we will explore what accessibility means, why it is important, and what this looks like on both web and mobile applications.

Accessibility takes on many forms, as there are a wide range of humans out there who have different needs and abilities. Technology has made it easier than ever to adapt to all kinds of human needs and uses, however all those needs aren’t always on every developers’ radar.

In this talk, you'll see what tools are already available for accessibility testing, and also delve deeper into the world of adapting for all users, exploring the needs and possibilities that a QA tester should consider when testing an app for usability.


  • Learn how to identify gaps or blindspots you may have in considering what functionality to build into an application
  • Become more equipped to create diverse, inclusive tests and help your teams engineer higher quality products
  • Understand the technology and tools available for a11y testing, and what needs exist on the automation front for addressing more accessibility issues for users.
  • Explore some of the existing a11y automated testing functionality available for web app testing
  • Explore our own blindspots when it comes to accessibility testing, and brainstorm about what needs exist
  • Understand the scope and function of assistive technology available on mobile devices
  • Explore a case study where a company with a mobile application does extensive accessibility testing on real devices, and explore what they test, and how better test automation can help them and their customers
  • Discuss what basic considerations should be included in testing programs to ensure we are meeting all a11y accessibility standards

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is the Automation Guild event?

Automation Guild is an industry-standard annual online event I’ve organized since 2017.

**AG 2017 was one of the first-ever online events in the world dedicated 100% to automation testing.**

My goal?

To create a community-driven event made for the the testers -- laser focused to help them achieve less flaky automation and fast-track their career growth.

That’s why for each event, I invite some of the most highly qualified and experienced automation experts in the world…

...and give them a platform to share key functional (and non-functional) insights required to build better software - faster.

Plus, share all the latest tips, best practices, useful tools, most effective strategies, and actionable techniques from their real-world experience.

What kind of results can I expect?

By implementing “in-the-trench” expert advice from Automation Guild 2022, you can expect to:
✓ Achieve faster, better, and reliable automation
✓ Save time wasted on flaky tests
✓ Avoid little-known and time-consuming mistakes
✓ Shorten your learning curve
✓ Upgrade (and widen) your skillset
✓ Open up more (and better) career opportunities
✓ Fast-track your career growth

What time zone is the conference? What if I can’t attend live?

All live events usually take place from 10 AM to 6 PM Eastern Time Zone. The exact day-wise and time slot for each session is being finalized.

If you can’t make it live, no worries.

Because you’ll get lifetime access to:
⇨ Every over-the-shoulder video training session
⇨ The Q&A video with the speaker after their session
⇨ Roundtable “ask experts anything” session (typically at the end of each day)
⇨ Complete chat transcripts
⇨ Session transcripts

In fact, if you can't attend the live Q&As - you can submit your questions to me ahead of time and I will ask the speaker live.

After the conference is over I will edit all the LIVE Q&A and place each speakers individual Q&A session under their speaker’s page so you will be able to view their session and Q&A from the same location.

Can you create a custom invoice for me?

Yes, absolutely.

Here’s what you need to do:
Step #1: Just proceed with registration using your preferred payment mode.
Step #2: After that, email me at [email protected] with the details you require on your custom invoice.

That’s it. I’ll send your custom invoice so you can claim your reimbursement.

Should I get a 3-day ticket or a 5-day ticket?

If you’re interested in topics related only to functional automation, register for the 3-day ticket.

However, if you’d like to expand your knowledge on other critical automation topics (non-functional automation) such as:
• Performance testing
• Security testing
• DevOps
• Chaos engineering
• Accessibility testing, etc.

Then you should most certainly opt for the best value option: The Complete 5-Day Ticket.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

So if you're not satisfied for any reason...or don't get tangible results from Automation Guild 2022…

Simply let me know within 180 days (6 full months), and I'll return 100% of your investment.

No Questions Asked.

How do Guild Conferences Work?

1) Guild online conferences are single track events.

2) All live activity takes place in the EDT/EST time zone usually 10AM - 6:00PM

3) I ask that speakers pre-record their sessions ahead of time to ensure the best video/audio quality. I try to also add them to the conference site a week before the event to give folks a chance to watch ahead of time if they want.

4) I ask all speakers to keep there sessions to 25 minutes.

5) During the LIVE conference days, I stream the pre-recorded session followed by the speakers LIVE to take Q&A from the audience.

How should I approach my company to pay (or reimburse) for my ticket?

If your company has an education budget for employees...Or you just want to put forth a value proposition for AG 2022 in front of your manager, this might help:

>>> Google Doc (Email Template)

All you need to do is make a copy of this document. And then simply edit the email template to suit your needs.

How do I register my group?

If you are registering more than one person select the number of attendees from the product ticket page i.e. the next page from here.

If your group has 2 attendees choose a quantity of 2. If it has 5 choose a quantity of 5 and so forth. The ticket price is per attendee.

However, groups of 5 or more get additional discounts (auto applied at checkout). Please refer payment info above.         

Do you offer any payment plans?

The live event and lifetime access to Automation Guild 2022 can only be unlocked for a one-time investment of $297 for the 5-day event. And $197 for the 3-day event.

I understand the amounts carry a different weight for testers from various countries and financial situations.

That’s why I suggest looking at this as an investment in yourself...and evaluate it from an ROI point of view.

Q #1 ⇨ Would getting lifetime access to practical and real-world knowledge of the world's top automation experts - help you get a higher salary and open up more (and better) opportunities?

Q #2 ⇨ Would 24/7 access to 2000+ skilled testers help you get quick solutions, avoid mistakes, save a ton of time, and enable you to reach your goals faster?

Q #3 ⇨ Simply put...would it give you back way more than your investment in AG 2022 - just like it has for all the testers in our community?

Asking yourself the above 3 questions will help you make the best decision for your current situation.


I don’t want you worrying about losing your investment…

That’s why I also offer an unconditional 180-day "Love it or Leave it" 100% money-back guarantee.

And honestly, I don’t know of any other online conference in the world that gives 100% of the investment back.
