The Agile Tester — How to add value as a quality geek

A session at LAST Conference

Friday 27th July, 2012

9:15am to 10:00am (EST)

Agile has become increasingly mainstream as an approach to development, yet the software testing community has, overall, lagged behind in embracing agile processes.

This interactive session will highlight common misunderstandings of the role of testers in agile projects, based on the collective experience of agile test leads across several different organisational environments. With a focus on what testers need to do to ensure they're adding value in a release focused environment, there'll also be lots of scope to explore what agile developers expect from their tester team mates, and how to get the balance of tester and developer expectations right.

Participants can expect to take away practical ideas to help raise the quality of their output and keep both testers and developers happy along the way.
