I Don’t Believe Your Company is Agile!

You say your company has adopted agile development practices and that may be true. But, what about your testing? How agile is that? Are you stuck in manual mode? Even if you automate parts of testing, are you doing it within each sprint? In an era where application quality defines your brand, it’s time to adopt a new testing approach that matches the speed of agile.

Today’s application economy requires software to be built faster, with fewer defects. The only way for companies to achieve this goal is through the process known as Continuous Testing. This means testing the code, build, application and customer experience non-stop, all the time. Continuous Testing makes the testing activity part of the development of an application and not an event done after code is supposedly ready. This is the only way to shift testing to the left in the development process. In-Sprint test automation is paramount. Come join us for this breakfast session to gain:

  • A better understanding of why you should adopt continuous testing practices 
  • Sure fire testing bottlenecks that will hamper the best development teams 
  • An overview of the tools required to achieve continuous testing 
  • New ways to “agilize” all aspects of your testing process to achieve continuous software delivery
