Testing on the Block chain!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Crypto currencies like Bitcoin will become more and more prevalent and the technical framework or infrastructure that these transactions run on will also become more and more prevalent. It is called (for now) the “Block Chain”. You may not be someone who wonders about this technology. But you will be.  The Block Chain has been going on already in utilization and it is predicted that this technology will have sweeping impact in the finance world and thus on all future financial transactions. As testers who need to keep on top of the latest or upcoming technologies, we need to ask ourselves questions: How can we be certain the Block Chain executed the transactions like it is supposed to do?  What is the nature of the Block Chain and can it be “tested”? 

What the Session Covers 
We will explore Block Chain concepts from a Testing perspective hoping to demonstrate that those who can grasp this technology now will be better positioned to work with and test these workings and to benefit greatly from this contextual knowledge.

  • This session is for anyone who wants to know about the Block Chain or Crypto Currencies  in such a way as to be able to tackle it from a testing perspective

  • Gain insight into how testing might be utilized for securing and checking and exploring the Block Chain from a quality perspective

  • Discover if „testing“  in the Block Chain is even possible


  • An intro to the Block Chain and how testing relates to it

  • How testing for Crypto Currency relates to Security testing and other test types

  • How you can be aware of this game changing technology and framework in order to  be able to test its implementations and impact on all markets

Take away

  • Understand what Testing approaches are needed for this Framework of Crypto Currency and the Block Chain

  • Be able to identify relevant types of testing needed for this emerging Block Chain infrastructure

  • Be positioned to test Block Chain and Crypto Currency related implementations, applications and infrastructure.

  • Become Block Chain aware and thereby be able to further yourself to Test contexts that will grow from the use of this infrastructure in the coming years

Tester, Developer, Dev Ops Engineer, Manager, Product Owner, Team and really Everyone
