While many software development teams are moving towards agile development, they discover that their test and QA organization also needs to be adapted. The advantages of agile development are important, but in practice they are not always easy to realize.
Short iterations are great for flexibility but how do you best fit in regression testing in an agile process?
For instance, our business reality is that we work with globally distributed teams in different time zones. How to best manage these distributed teams in an agile process?
"We find companies may be struggling with the move toward agile methods and away from more traditional development processes, especially how to best fit in QA and testing. The reasons we are holding this seminar is that the information to be presented and the group discussion will allow for a better understanding of agile testing,” says Jan Princen, Managing Director of XBOSoft.
