About the speaker

Naomi O'Callaghan

Working in Software Testing for over 2 decades, mainly in distributed systems testing for large international companies, I still have a passion to see if it works.  Over the years, I have been working with the challenges of testing large scale networks within an Agile, Continuous Integration and Delivery context.  As a QA Manager, and now Engineering Manager, of Agile scrum teams, our challenges focus on building quality in as early as possible. After many years in telecommunications, I am now working in the travel industry. Most of my time is migrating applications to cloud platforms in an increasingly fast paced environment.

Speaker: Rebecca Keenan

In this talk, we look at how automation technologies are changing the way we work as the human and digital workforce continues to converge. We will look at the technologies driving these changes, implementation considerations and key roles for success so you can prioritise the needs of your people, hand over manual processes to the robots and create a workplace that works – for everyone.
