    The key objectives of organizations is to provide / derive value from the products / services they offer. To achieve this, they need to be able to deliver their offerings in the quickest time possible, and of good quality!

    In order for these organizations to to understand the quality / health of their products at a quick glance, typically a team of people scramble to collate and collect the information manually needed to get a sense of quality about the products they support. All this is done manually.

    So in the fast moving environment, where CI (Continuous Integration) and CD (Continuous Delivery) are now a necessity and not a luxury, how can teams take decisions if the product is ready to be deployed to the next environment or not?

    Test Automation across all layers of the Test Pyramid is one of the first building blocks to ensure the team gets quick feedback into the health of the product-under-test.

    The next set of questions are:
        •    How can you collate this information in a meaningful fashion to determine - yes, my code is ready to be promoted from one environment to the next?
        •    How can you know if the product is ready to go 'live'?
        •    What is the health of you product portfolio at any point in time?
        •    Can you identify patterns and do quick analysis of the test results to help in root-cause-analysis for issues that have happened over a period of time in making better decisions to better the quality of your product(s)?

    The current set of tools are limited and fail to give the holistic picture of quality and health, across the life-cycle of the products.

    The solution - TTA - Test Trend Analyzer

    TTA is an open source product that becomes the source of information to give you real-time and visual insights into the health of the product portfolio using the Test Automation results, in form of Trends, Comparative Analysis, Failure Analysis and Functional Performance Benchmarking. This allows teams to take decisions on the product deployment to the next level using actual data points, instead of 'gut-feel' based decisions.

    Do you fancy playing the first Scrum Master of a startup?

    Do you want to live the challenges faced by the first Scrum Master of a startup?  Do you feel that your organization is dramatically different from the 'ideal' organizations, which the Agile workshops project as a basic requirement for doing Agile development?  Do you wish to deliver predictable results while your management is on-the-way to make your organization 'Agile-ready'?  This tutorial is just what you want.

    In this tutorial, you will experience the life of a first Scrum Master of a twenty member startup, which has expansion plans.  Each of the audience will put themselves in the Scrum Master's shoes and try to solve the challenges posed by the ever-changing environment, while the company's management is putting its best efforts to make the organization 'Agile-ready'.  In this interactive tutorial, a gripping story-line will drag you into the world of uncertainties where you would be challenged to take life-changing decisions regarding your product team's daily work.

    Even if you are not in a startup, this tutorial would benefit you because everyone still comes across ad-hoc situations which go against the ideal expectations of Agile world.

    Agile Product development with Scrum is based on completing a set of User Stories within a time-box called a sprint. Stories describing user functionality. Conversatin with customer is the means of elaborating requirement. looks simple, right?

    Only User Stories are enough for product development? If not, what all other documents are necessary and how these are progressively elaborated? 

    What's required before agile team start sprinting? What are the challenges while transitioning from waterfall to agile related to product requirement?

    What's the role of Business Analyst in agile? BA moving into an agile team, moving to Product Owner? Can Business Analyst and Product Owner co-exist?

    When it comes to software quality, everybody wants good quality software only. However when it comes to define, measure and achieve it objectively, confusion prevails. Different people and different perceptions.

     

    So how to define software code quality, how to measure it and build a culture towards great code quality software, take proactive steps instead of reporting based reactive steps? These are some important aspects this session will touch-base.

     

    On top of that, we all have heard about Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment, but what's this Continuous Inspection all about? What all is involved to achieve that and how to achieve that with Jenkins and with other Continuous Integration servers? Along with answers of all these questions, a hand-on demo will be given as part of the session.

    -The Sprint Planning meeting is just too long and never finishes on time.

    -I finished my tasks on time, the story couldn’t be completed as there was a dependency on him. I just didn’t have time to follow it up. Not my fault.

    -Yet again, there are left over items in the sprint. We couldn’t finish all the committed stories as some of them were too complex for their correct effort complexity estimation.

    -Ohh Gosh, once again the priority of the tasks have changed in the middle of the sprint, there are new urgent items that have to be done. My sprint commitments have gone for a toss.

    -We moved to Agile from waterfall and it has been few sprints into it, though even here vision is unclear, requirements are evolving and our sprint commitments are failing. Velocity is just been a number, Burn down graphs conclude nothing concrete and useful.

    -How do we cater support/maintenance work with Scrum?

    Does any of the above statement sound familiar to you, if yes probably it is the time to evolve and adopt KanScrumBan wrapped around XP practices.

    KanScrumBan is the combination of Kanban and Scrum and uses the best features of both. While Scrum framework helps the software development teams to self-organize, collaborate, improve efficiency constantly, work in small iterations, and avoid management overhead, applying lean methods like Kanban , flavored with XP practices can extend these benefits.

    For teams developing & maintaining mobile apps for both Android & iOS platforms, functional testing is a huge challenge. With the advent of Agile practices, behavior driven testing has gained more popularity. The current process of updating apps over the air is very easy, raising users’ expectations of new features delivered sooner.

    Appium has made it easier for teams to test their apps for multiple platforms. However, it alone cannot solve the challenges around implementing behavior driven development & frequent UI/functionality updates. So we created a robust Test Framework combining the best features of Appium, Cucumber-jvm & Page Objects.

    Cucumber-jvm is a key tool in implementing BDD. Page Objects is a framework design approach for maintaining & accessing components & controls spread across test scenarios. Appium provides a JSON bridge that allows test cases to be written once, and run for multiple mobile platforms. Integrating the powerful features of these 3 tools, we can create a powerful framework that is easy to setup, use, scale and maintain.

    Working in agile for last 5 years and running 3 different programs with 2 week sprint, the biggest hurdle which I experienced was ensuring no short cuts taken and quality not compromised. Few best practices which I have experienced over last few years is

    - Never give waiver even if milestone being hit.

    - Ensure right information radiators being focused by leadership team

    - Regular Risk assessment

    - Don't try and bolt quality by exhaustive QA. Build quality at first level.

     

    Would like to take opportunity to share few key practices to ensure quality not being compromised
