Automation in an Agile Environment
Speaker: Amanda Adams, VP Quality Assurance – Xpanxion, LLC
Meeting Sponsored by Xpanxion, LLC - http://www.xpanxion.com/
In today's Agile environments teams are expected to be able to do more, more quickly with less. The move to Agile is especially problematic for test teams as cuts around time and resources tend to hit the quality assurance group first and shortcuts taken by other groups can have major impacts on testing quality. This presentation is designed to focus on processes, approaches and tools that can help testing teams ensure quality and mitigate risk while maintaining the fast pace that business expect to see in an Agile environment.
