Topic: Software Testing – How has agile changed the game?

Karen goes back to the core of why we test and what we know about testing from research data. She will explorer the implications of agile software development on testing: what has to change in our approach to testing in an agile environment; and what can we still use from traditional testing techniques. She will cover some automation tips, defect tracking, test reporting and finally some technical things testers really need to understand.

About the Speaker

Karen started out her career as a Software Tester for Microsoft on Windows 2000. She learned a great deal about testing in this complex environment with about 3000 people working on a single product. She was fortunate enough to be trained in testing fundamentals by Cem Kaner. It’s 10 years later and Karen been working with agile teams for 5 years, she is still passionate about testing and as a Scrum Coach is interested in how the discipline of testing has been affected by agile.
