SauceCon 2021 Call For Presentations

Bringing together the Sauce Labs user community, continuous testing and DevOps experts from around the world, SauceCon Online is devoted to providing attendees with real world case studies, innovative approaches, and practical how-to information and live coding examples that they can put to immediate use in their own organizations. We’re inviting anyone with great automated testing, mobile app testing, continuous testing, and DevOps stories and experiences, to submit a speaking proposal by January 24, 2021.

With an audience composed of testing practitioners, developers and managers, we’re looking for presentations that are focused on the latest developments in web and mobile software testing. Areas of particular interest include:

  • Journey to CI/CD and Continuous Testing
  • Implementing CI/CD with Mobile in Mind
  • Shifting Testing Left … or Right (or both)
  • Best Practices in Optimizing Code for Automated Testing
  • Best Practices for Test Creation, Test Management or Test Execution
  • Leveraging Analytics to Optimize Quality
  • Open Source Testing Tools & Native Frameworks
  • Native Frameworks for Testing
  • API Testing
  • Testing in Production
  • Journey Monitoring

If you have faced challenges and overcome them, or failed brilliantly, or both, we want to hear from you. Importantly, keep in mind that what might now be an everyday occurrence for you can be an eye-opening revelation to someone who is just beginning their continuous testing journey. To see prior SauceCon presentations, check out SauceCon Online 2020, SauceCon 2019, SauceCon 2018 and SauceCon 2017 presentation recordings and agendas.

We remain firmly committed to diversity, so we encourage you, and people you know to submit – especially those who wouldn’t normally do so and/or might be underrepresented at a tech conference.
