DCG Software Value to Present at the STAREast Conference
DCG's Michael D. Harris will present on Agile testing at STAREast, the longest running software testing event in the industry.
The STAR conferences (STAREast, STARWest and STARCanada) focus exclusively on software testing and quality improvement, covering the latest software testing technologies, concepts, and tools.
Michael D. Harris, CEO of DCG Software Value, will present, "Budgeting, Estimation, Planning and #NoEstimates - They ALL Make Sense for Agile Testing!," on Wednesday, May 4, at 1:45pm. He will discuss the difference between budgeting, planning, and estimation, as applied to testing in an Agile environment, and he will outline when each technique makes sense, when they don't, and in what combination for testing.
"Many developers, particularly in Agile environments, have an almost singular focus on completing the project or tool at hand in order to deliver it to the end user. The #NoEstimates momentum is a byproduct of this mentality. But should #NoEstimates be a concern for the testing community, who know exactly how developer over-confidence leads to insufficient testing time?," said Mr. Harris. "In an ideal world, testing would be done first, through test-driven development, but is that what the #NoEstimates crowd have in mind? My presentation will focus on examining #NoEstimates in the context of traditional and Agile estimating, with a short case study to show how it can impact testing specifically in an Agile environment."
The presentations, tutorials, and training at STAREast cover established testing practices, as well as emerging trends in test techniques, test management, test automation, mobile testing, Agile testing, performance testing, requirements, and more. The week-long conference will take place at the Renaissance Orlando at Sea World.
