Session: Sleeping with the enemy

Thursday, 13:00 - 13:50
Track: Test

Traditional software delivery models are based on a lack of trust. Because the business doesn't trust developers, testers are asked to provide independent validation. Because developers don't trust testers, everyone wastes a lot of time arguing about whether a problem is in the code or in the tests. And testers are taught not to trust anyone! All of this distrust even though we share the same end-goal—delivering a product that satisfies our customers. Gojko Adzic describes why independent testing should be a thing of the past. He explains how testers engaging with developers and business users create opportunities to accomplish things they cannot do otherwise. Learn how delivery—from small web start-ups to large financial institutions—facilitate good communication and trust among business users, testers, and developers to deliver better software, faster.
