About the Topic

Start your engines!

Evolving into Agile practices is a cross country drive for some and a race for others. Considering your customer’s quick to market needs and business value proposition, this road trip demands nimble software development practices and a responsive product roadmap. Learn how to get over the speed bumps from doing agile to being agile in your quality approach.

We’ll start with mechanics of agile testing and how QA partners with their engineering teams towards Continuous Quality. Pop open the trunk to explore how a microservices architecture efficiently produces a minimum viable product. Learn how to merge lanes with operations to make that product both testable and ship quickly to market. As you shift gears to the left, enjoy the scenic career routes ahead from traditional testing to analysis and engineering roles. End our trip with the benefits of a strategic approach resulting into a proven software quality delivery practice within your organization.

This program includes an Interactive Workshop to design a Roadmap for your organization’s Continuous Quality.
