August 2014 II - Release Testing Is Risk Management Theatre: Steve Smith

  • Aug 19, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

NOTE: This talk is co-promoted by London CD and London Tester Gathering, with a 50/50 split on the attendee limit.  It will be held at Skillsmatter and you need to register with them.

SYNOPSIS: Agile methods advocate cross-functional teams responsible for product quality, yet the notion of Release Testing (post-development, end-to-end regression testing) as a risk reduction strategy stubbornly lives on. 

However, from a Continuous Delivery perspective Release Testing is Risk Management Theatre – a costly practice that delivers little value. Why is this?

In this talk, Steve Smith will discuss why Release Testing is an antipattern, and offer an alternative risk reduction strategy.
