This track will help participants understand how they can fit traditional test practices into an Agile environment as well as explore real-world examples of testing projects and teams in varying degrees of Agile adoption.

Develop Yourself and Uplift Others

In the constant flux of software development, everyone involved in creating new technologies and features must adapt to changes or be left behind. One obstacle facing professional development is lack of support and/or guidance from management.

With a Lean thinking underbody to Agile, it’s important that we learn from our failures and focus on continuous improvement. What we often do is “fail at failing”. This results from […]

Service Virtualization: How to Test More Faster by Testing Less

What is service virtualization and how does it hasten testing? Agile teams tend to struggle in getting development and testing in sync. Many teams run minified waterfalls, where testers get working code a few days before the end of the sprint. It’s rare that a tool will help. But Service Virtualization is one of those […]

Hyper-Parallelism – The Panacea of Automated Testing?

Any hope of Continuous Delivery or Pipeline Automation makes this […]
