Can't-Miss Keynote with Rhian Lewis

Rhian Lewis is a freelance software engineer specialising in test automation who has worked on projects for some of the world's best-known brands since 2009. She has been deeply involved in the cryptocurrency and blockchain community since 2013, as the co-developer of altcoin portfolio tracker CountMyCrypto and the co-host of London Women in Bitcoin. She writes about blockchain tech and is a regular speaker on the subject, especially in the context of testing.

Her keynote "The Blockchain Paradox" will deal with how blockchains work in their current form, how they may work in the future and its impacts on the role of the software tester. Blockchain technology is different from anything that has come before; there is much functional testing that needs to happen before many of the applications are production ready - but along with functional testing comes the responsibility to consider the ethical problems that will occur. Rhian will discuss whether technology like blockchains and AI are utopian or dystopian. Her keynote will also focus on the role of the tester as the gatekeepers in ensuring that this exciting new technology is used in a responsible way.

If you want to learn more about decentralised technologies that can be a force for good and how they can empower individuals to control their own data, then come to the Agile Testing Days 2018 this November in Potsdam. See you there!
