In the 2-day course, you will learn how to build quality into your product while controlling scope and avoiding duplicated efforts. We will learn how to apply a ‘whole-team’ approach to quality and how to orchestrate feedback from your tests in order to be extremely effective. We will learn why the traditional approaches to test automation don’t yield the returns we require and why these approaches do not increase quality despite being expensive and costly to maintain.
The course is implemented as an interactive workshop aiming for about 50:50 lecture to lab ratio. Students will have fun, be energized and ready to apply this skill upon completion of this extremely engaging workshop.
We want product owners or non-technical business stakeholders, developers and tasters, as well as anyone interested in learning the craft of Behavior Driven Development (BDD) to attend.
The pattern repeats itself every day. Many teams implement Scrum or other iterative practices in their quest to be Agile. Initially it appears to work great as the team can just go fast. But, just as quickly as they got started, they discover that they can no longer go fast—that the architecture has devolved, the code is a mess and the team starts to discuss “technical debt” as the reason they are no longer as Agile as they could be.
The reasons for this are many, but if we apply the same practices we’ve always used we’ll find ourselves in trouble sooner, rather than later.
And yet we know that some teams are developing complex software and deploying quality releases. In some cases many times a day. So what is it that these teams know and other teams wish they knew?
The 2-day course for Product Owners, QA Professionals and Developers will teach you what it takes to create quality while building the right product that can support change. We’ll learn how teams new to Agile create technical debt like a leaky faucet and what we can do about it. We will learn about modern ways to “bake quality in” to our products and why practitioners feel these techniques will save “Agile.”
