Summit Overview
Agile. To some it’s natural, simple and obvious. To others it’s awkward, confusing and counter-intuitive. Some have experience with successful Agile projects. Others…not so much. Whatever your opinion of or experience with existing teams, if you have ever been involved with a team transitioning from a non-Agile approach to developing software to an Agile one, you know how challenging it can be, especially as it relates to testing and testers. Join your host, Scott Barber, for this three day online summit, during which he and seven other recognized leaders in Agile methodologies share with you their experiences related to what good testing looks like on Agile teams and their best tips on how to seamlessly integrate testing and testers into Agile teams.

Who Should Attend
The Agile Transitions summit was designed for software test and quality assurance professionals who want to learn more about Agile development projects. Specifically, it is designed for those professionals who will be challenged to test faster and need to implement a continuous testing method.  Novices will be introduced to new concepts and practical ideas, while seasoned professionals will learn new approaches to enhance their abilities.

Why Attend?
  • This is a one-of-a-kind event that was created for software testers, by software testers.
  • We’ve put together a content-rich program in a comfortable structured environment delivered by seasoned presenters who are forward thinkers and Agile authorities.
  • Participate in networking opportunities designed to encourage the exchange of peer-to-peer knowledge from other test automation engineers and the session speakers.
  • Travel is not required.  Attend all of the sessions, interact with the presenters and network with your peers right from the comfort of your home or office!
  • You don't have to stop working to attend so you can start applying what you learn immediately. The audio and video from each session will be recorded. If you miss a session, you will have access to all of the session recordings once the summit has ended.
