Talk Description

“Testers need to be involved earlier!” is a mantra that keeps coming up over and over when talking about testers on the agile team. But what is their contribution when they get the chance? At Atlassian QA stands for Quality Assistance, which means we assist development teams deliver quality software at speed.

This presentation is about how I as a QA engineer work with product managers, designers, developers and support to avoid creating bugs so that focus can be on creating great software fast instead of fixing bugs. Activities include feature risk workshops, quality-design sparring sessions and story level kickoffs. I am going to talk about timing and opportunities with the different interactions and how we through these avoid rework and create quality software from the start.
