S12-705: The Hard Stuff: Questions About Agile

Track: Agile Testing

Sure, Agile-Testing sounds great … but how are you going to compress all that regression testing into the end of the iteration? What do you do when the developers dump all of the stories on the test team and the end, wash their hands, and ask wistfully “why is QA always the bottleneck?” or perhaps “Why haven’t we achieved 100% test automation?”

This talk is about the tough stuff.

Matt Heusser assembles a small panel of experts (including you!) to talk about the tough questions, and how to give meaningful answers, with integrity.

We’ll build the session based on the questions you have. If you have a particularly burning test question you need answered, email it to Matt.Heusser@gmail.com.
