Testers on Agile teams often find themselves doing everything they can to keep up with the demand for
increasing velocity. There is rarely time to take a step back and identify process changes to make to
increase software quality and find ways for the entire team to contribute without distracting from
delivering new features
This presentation makes simple suggestions to solve typical Scrum team problems that can have
devastating impact on our ability to test and release high-quality software, sprint after sprint. From
sprint planning and story definition to test design and defect management, the entire lifecycle is a target
for improvement and efficient execution. Let Paul share some hard-earned lessons proven to address
some common challenges.
KEY LEARNING POINTS
1) Ideas for story and acceptance criteria definition which lead to more accurate implementation.
2) Simple thoughts around test case design.
3) Defect management to avoid an overwhelming backlog of technical debt.

Unit testing ensures your production code is relevant. But what does ensure your testing code is relevant? Come discover mutation testing and make sure your never forget another assert again.
In the realm of testing, the code coverage metrics is the most often talked about. However, it doesn’t mean that the test has been useful or even that an assert has been coded. Mutation testing is a strategy to make sure that the test code is relevant.
In this talk, I will explain how Code Coverage is computed and what its inherent flaw is. Afterwards, I will describe how Mutation Testing work and how it helps pointing out code that is tested but leave out corner cases. I will also demo PIT, a Java production-grade framework that enables Mutation Testing.
The Comrades Marathon is the largest and oldest ultra marathon in the world. Every year 20,000
runners line up to subject themselves to 90 (very hilly) kilometres of pain, anguish and mental torture -
a lot like agile transformations. Whilst the Amazons and Googles seem to have agility built into their
DNA, most of us are like the 'average runner' battling through to finish Comrades in the final hour before cut-off. The presentation uses statistical analysis and stories from the Comrades Marathon to
refute several agile misconceptions; demonstrates how the Comrades Marathon applies to the Agile
Manifesto (and how this practically applies back to enterprise agile transformations); and finally
'proves' that anyone can run the Comrades Marathon (and therefore any organisation can have a successful enterprise agile transformation!). Enterprise agile transformations are a lot of hard work.
This is a talk for those of us for whom agility does not come naturally - from a runner who has battled
through 10 Comrades Marathons and spent 3 years battling away on the front line of a major
enterprise agile transformation.
Learning Outcomes The talk combines statistical analysis and inspirational stories from the
Comrades Marathon to provide humorous, practical and appropriate insights
that relate to your enterprise agile transformation. Real data, anecdotes and
photos are used to illustrate each point.
* Agile fables versus practical facts
* The importance of getting the pace of change just right
* The importance of goals to drive the transformation journey
* Conquering the most difficult aspects of agile transformations
* The role of leadership in agile transformations
