Speaking at the Houston Scrum Users Group

Improving Houston has picked up the torch and is bringing the Houston Scrum Users Group back to life, and I have the honor to deliver the first talk of this comeback on May 15!

I’ll be giving my most recent talk, as below:

Testing in Agile: from Afterthought to Integral Part

Testing cannot be an afterthought; it has to be an integral part of software development. Is it something that QA teams do? Or is it part of a developer’s duties? Do business analysts play any role in it? What is test automation? Unit test, Integration test, Test-Driven Development, Behavior-Driven Development… what do those mean?!
This session addresses all of those questions, as we talk through the importance of tests, the collaboration among team members, the techniques, and practices around different kinds of automated testing.
