Next session was on Visual Testing Visual perfection for your apps made easy using App Percy – It was delivered by Sanket Mali
Sanket Mali talked about how App Percy is useful and it can reduce workload. Some thought shared are
Functional testing verifies an application’s behavior, ensuring it functions correctly. In contrast, visual testing focuses on pixel-perfect accuracy, confirming that application screens display precisely as intended. It checks elements like fonts and screen element placement, guarding against unintended issues caused by unrelated functional changes. App Percy, designed for both Native and Hybrid mobile apps on Android and iOS devices, automates visual testing to enhance build quality, streamline release cycles, and boost developer productivity. In essence, App Percy offers an effortless solution to achieve visual perfection in your apps, ensuring your application’s design aligns seamlessly with your desired standards.

Next Dhiren Shah and Yagnesh Tailor gave a wonderful session on How Generative AI is Revolutionizing Software Testing and Automation
Dhiren and Yagnesh talked about Generative AI and Testing – it was very interactive and wonderful session. They talked about how Software product testing is essential for ensuring customer satisfaction, reducing errors and bugs, and improving the overall user experience. However, software product testing can also be challenging, time-consuming, and costly. It requires a lot of human resources, expertise, and creativity to design and execute effective test cases that cover all the possible scenarios and edge cases. Moreover, software products are constantly evolving and updating, which means that the test cases also need to be updated and maintained regularly. This is where generative AI can play a vital role in software product testing. Generative AI can help automate and enhance the software product testing process by generating realistic and diverse test data, scenarios, and cases that can mimic the real-world user behavior and expectations. Generative AI can also help discover new bugs and vulnerabilities that might be overlooked by human testers or conventional testing methods.
