Talk 1: Rhian Lewis: Why Blockchain Projects Can Ever Only Be Agile

Blockchain technology came to the world's attention with Bitcoin and associated cryptocurrencies, but it is about far more than payments. Testers will soon need to rigorously evaluate new blockchain applications in fields ranging from supply chain management, automotive, manufacturing, insurance and fintech. But how do we test them - and how far does our responsiblity go?

In this talk, Rhian will focus on the challenges of testing a technology that is changing faster than every other open-source software.

Talk 2: Lisa Trujillo: GDPR and Privacy by Design Principles within Agile Processes

The way in which users engage with and feel about entities who request and process their data has changed. We now live in the age of GDPR, but GDPR is not just about aiming for compliance and ticking boxes for auditors. It offers opportunities for fresh approaches to how we view and respect our end users’ needs and demands, how we design services we provide to them, and how we operate internally and setup our workflows. In this talk, Lisa will discuss Privacy by Design principles and how they may be applied to data lifecycles and agile development methods.
