Overview of the event

We recently wrapped up 2018 as the year of digital quality. We talked about how digital transformation is going to bring even more drastic shifts in how we do software delivery. And how your organization needs to brace up to bring agile models to work in order to release higher quality software faster through automated testing.

A key trend that will sweep over to bring economies of scale, speed and intelligence will be automated testing followed by AI. We've seen a massive movement from manual to automation in the last couple of years, as manual could not handle this scale of change. Manual testing matrices are too big to approximate manually, take a long time, and are very complex to handle for applications like Uber, Snapchat, and Twitter that are scaling at the speed of light.

Manual testing might not be able to meet the demand of a plethora of web browsers, devices, operating systems, screen resolutions, and responsive designs. And to deliver quality at the speed of digital, there will be a need to bring in the right automated testing initiatives. But automation is vast and there are several nuances to it. Which nuances will be more pronounced in 2019?

Agile Testing and Test Automation Summit will help you get industry best practices in Test Automation and the latest tools and techniques to achieve it.

X Topic Abstract

10 ways that agile is like running a marathon (and what we can learn from that) - instead of sprinting (and gasping for breath after one iteration) we want to jog at an even pace so that we can run forever; plus 9 other factual, humorous and practical insights from a compulsive marathon runner.
Learning Outcomes:

* Practical examples of agile transformations

* Humorous insights into the alignment between marathon running and agile transformations

* A fresh and motivational look at agile transformations The presentation will take a fresh and humorous point-by-point (or should that be step-by-step) look at the how marathon running can help guide agile transformations.

The session will provide 10 insights drawing from the presenters practical experience from the road (whilst running over 200 marathons) and the field (whilst ruining over 200 projects - not really - let’s say practical learnings that will help others in their agile journeys). The presentation will use marathon running to explain why key agile concepts are important and how they apply to your agile transformation.
