Agile Practitioners 2012

About the Event

January 30, 2012

Ramat-Gan, Israel

While virtually everyone agrees today that testing is critical for a project’s success, in practice testers and developers more often than not experience an ‘Us and Them’ relationship. Even agile teams, where cross-discipline teams are encouraged, often report that testers are the experts responsible for the quality assurance of the engineering process, whereas programmers are responsible for the programming part. Furthermore, many organizations regard testing as a step in the process, potentially maintaining this ‘Us and Them’ culture. Yet, as the agile frameworks suggest, testing is considered an integral part of the engineering process. Agile Practitioners IL 2012, nicknamed “Mind the Gap”, is the first conference in Israel that sets a goal to bridge the gap between software development and software testing. The goal of the conference is to allow professionals from both ends of the spectrum to meet up, discuss and work together on creating ways and techniques on “building quality in”. We strive to setup a new platform that will allow individuals and organizations, to learn ways to overcome cultural barriers, process obstacles and technical difficulties that prevents and widen the gap between product development and product quality assurance.
