Shifting quality left

A session at LAST Conference 2015

Friday 18th September, 2015

12:00pm to 12:40pm (EST)

The ever changing, fast and iterative product development space brings forth the burning question time and again: Who really tests your product and what is the scope of testing in the rapid cycles? Lines are blurred, skills are diverse, responsibilities shared and ownership is growingly collective in an agile product development environment. How do you ensure quality when focusing on speed?

In this presentation Bharat & Theresa share the QA battlescars and learnings acquired in different flavours of agile that has made one thing really obvious, Quality is shifting left.

You will get to hear and discuss the shift left principles, some case studies, the evolving expectations from the QA and everyone else in the team, and practical application steps of shifting quality left that you can take away.

This presentation has matured after 3 different flavours of it delivered to different set of audiences each time, and so has the speaker who has probably saved the best for the LAST :)
