Telerik and e-Zest will
be sponsoring two Agile seminars on January 18th at the MCCIA in Pune, India. Hope
to see you there!
Seminars on Agile Development and Testing Tuesday January 18th 2011 @ MCCIA, Pune
The Agile methodology has been adopted at many organizations. Unfortunately, many
still struggle with the various methodologies (XP, Scrum, Kanban, etc) and can’t settle
on just one. While some organizations do have successes is implementing Agile with
the development team, they tend to forget other vital parts of the process, mainly
testing. We will present two separate seminars, one on how to choose which agile methodology
(or how to mix and match several pieces) to implement in your organization and how
to do it. The second seminar dives into the value of Agile testing, how to use automated
Agile testing tools, and how your organization will benefit from Agile testing.
Morning Seminar: The Agile Buffet Table: Implementing your own Agile process
New to Agile? Having challenges implementing an agile process in your organization?
Have you been using Scrum, but need to bend the rules to make it work in your organization?
Can’t get the business to “buy-in”? Come and learn about implementing an agile process
in your organization. You'll look at the “buffet table” of agile processes and procedures
and learn how to properly decide “what to eat.” We’ll start by defining XP, Scrum,
Kanban and some other popular methodologies and then learn how to mix and match each
process for various scenarios, including the enterprise, ISVs, consulting, and remote
teams. Then take a look at agile tools and how they will aid in implementing your
development process. You’ll see how Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 provides
process templates for Agile that facilitate better planning and metrics. Learn how
Microsoft’s application lifecycle management (ALM) tools can support your development
process. Lastly, we will talk about how to “sell” agile to your business partners
and customers. The speakers have a very interactive style so participation is encouraged
and there will be plenty of time for Q&A.
Afternoon Seminar: Agile Testing
As more product teams move to Agile methodologies, the need for automated testing
becomes essential to generate the velocity needed to ship fully tested features in
short iterations. In this session we will look at the differences between traditional
testing and agile testing, explore some tools and strategies that can help make your
automation more productive as well as how to get the automation effort started for
both new and existing agile projects.
