Identifying your users and user needs is crucial for any product or solution development. It’s particularly important for DevOps teams to understand what value they’re trying to deliver and how it’s going to meet their user needs.
This talk delves into a concept of User Experience (UX) and how it can be applied within the DevOps environment. You’ll also learn a few useful techniques that will help you focus on your users (or customers) when delivering innovative DevOps solutions.

Laszlo Simity, Technical Services Manager at Sauce Labs
Web traffic generated from mobile devices continues to climb well above 50% and organisations are increasingly adopting 'mobile first' development strategies. But in quality, we are constantly bombarded with different options to make sure our web applications operate in the myriad different environments out there. Browser emulation? Mobile emulators or simulators? Real Devices?
In this talk, we will explore how to achieve high environmental coverage in minimal time, and discuss best practices on integrating mobile testing as part of our CI/CD pipeline.
