Elisabeth Hendrickson, AKA @testobsessed on Twitter, did her first real Agile project in 2004 and was ruined for working any other way. After over a decade helping organizations improve their agility as a consultant, she joined Pivotal in 2012 to work on Cloud Foundry. These days she's VP R&D for data products at Pivotal where she applies everything she's learned about agile and lean daily. She is known for her Word Count agile transformation simulation and as the author of Explore It! (published by Pragmatic Bookshelf). She is also a recipient of the 2010 Agile Alliance Gordon Pask Award and a past Agile Alliance board and program committee member.
What might you ask about in this session? Suggested topics include: how to achieve fast feedback cycles and eliminate test phases even on incredibly complex massive legacy systems; how large independent test teams can (ironically) result in lower quality; how to grow a culture of agility; or how Pivotal applies Extreme Programming at scale for our enterprise products. Along the way you're likely to hear about pragmatism v. expediency; being nice v. being kind; and why -- despite the moniker "testobsessed" -- Elisabeth doesn't actually self-identify as a tester.
