We would like to Welcome Shrikant Vashishtha as our esteemed speaker for DevOps++ Global Summit 2020 #doppa2020
Shrikant will be taking an Interactive Session on How much Test Automation is Enough and Why? – Track 1 on Day 1.
Shrikant Vashishtha is founder of Malonus Consulting and writer of a blog agilebuddha.com. For the last 10 years he have been helping orgs in their enterprise Agile transformation through agile coaching. Problems at the work-place interest him a lot and he love the role of a problem solver through collaborating with various stakeholders. Solutions don’t have to be contained within existing boxes as all boxes are mere tools for solving problems. He specialise in distributed Agile and have been working with a couple of completely remote companies in the past. He is a budding writer of a book on Distributed Agile. Hope to publish it soon.
We had posted some questions to Shrikant as a part of his #ATAMyStory
1. Why do you think speaking at #doppa2020 really matters to you?
Every team and org wants to do test automation. Still more than 90% people don’t do it because of many different reasons. My talk is important to put those problems in a perspective and help people identify just enough automation which provides ROI.
2. Do you think that organizations and individuals should promote virtual learnings special in the current situation?
The era beyond covid-19 will be a completely Paradigm shift. There will be more completely remote organisations in future. At the same time, there will be much more acceptance towards virtual learning.
3. While practice makes all of us perfect, share an everyday practice that has made things better for you at work?
I try using Personal Kanban to prioritise my work. At the same time I use pomodoro technique to focus on my work
4. Anything else you want to share
It really helps to focus on learning, solve problems and explore ideas beyond existing boxes. Something which works for someone, can’t be copied for your context, situations. It helps to understand your context in detail and see what could really possibly make sense in such a situation rather than just copying what other people have been doing.
