Meet up

Release Testing Is Risk Management Theatre

Tuesday, 19th August at Skills Matter, London

This meetup was organised by Skills Matter in August 2014

Release Testing Is Risk Management Theatre

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

Steve Smith

An XP / Lean developer with 10+ years of experience in enterprise software development in Britain and New Zealand, Steve Smith favours practices such as Pair Programming and Test Driven Development to build quality into software products.
