SAN FRANCISCO – March 16, 2017 - Sauce Labs, Inc., provider of the world’s largest cloud-based platform for automated testing of web and mobile applications, today announced the speaker lineup for its inaugural SauceCon user conference, taking place June 6 – 8, 2017 in San Francisco. The exclusive three-day event will include talks by some of the best brands in the world, including Honeywell, Slack and Yahoo!.

“SauceCon is the must-attend event for our customers and partners,” said Charles Ramsey, CEO of Sauce Labs. “We were overwhelmed with hundreds of paper submissions from our customers and are so impressed with the caliber of their topics. We look forward to spending quality time with our users and providing them a forum where they can learn from each other.”

Filled with best practices and visionary content from the leading minds in automated testing, SauceCon will offer a rare look at how leading brands use automated testing to achieve Continuous Delivery and drive their DevOps initiatives. Presentations will showcase best practices and real world stories about automated testing and optimizing integrations with Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) environments.

SauceCon attendees will learn key takeaways from us and others so that they can do the same.”
