February Meeting Information

Adapting Conventional Testing Strategies
to Agile Environments

February 10, 2015 6:30 - 8:30 PM

Rob Walsh, President Excalibur Solutions, Inc.

Summary: This session will help to explain how various testing efforts are used in responsible approaches to Agile software development. Further, it will explore ways that traditional QA efforts can be adapted to fit neatly within Agile processes. Examples will be given to show a typical Agile iteration, including what roles each team member plays inside and across iterations. Participants will learn how these team members collaborate in order to improve the chances that potential defects can be identified as close to the time they are introduced into the code as possible.

Visitors and Members:
RSVP on and receive an additional entry into the monthly Prize Raffle.
