Event description

Description

Presenter: Tristan McCarthy, Lead Consultant, OpenCredo


In the modern economy we are seeing that reactivity, decreased time-to-market and the ability to experiment are competitive advantages. The introduction of Agile methodology and the associated evolving software development practices have managed to satisfy these demands to some degree, but the traditional testing and quality assurance processes have struggled to keep pace. Join us on this course to learn how to harness modern QA practices like design by specification, automated testing, and metrics-driven quality assessment.


Drawing on over 6 years of practical experience from the OpenCredo team, you will explore worked examples and learn clear lessons in test automation and agile development. The workshop is ideal for members of development teams working to integrate testing, as well as test team members starting out with automation. Product owners and business analysts will also benefit from a better understanding of the process. The results will be clearer requirements, faster test feedback, and increased confidence in software quality.


This workshop will be structured to utilise the skills of both technical and business focused personnel to simulate the reality of working within an Agile team. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how agile testing can be integrated with every stage of the development life-cycle.
