Keynote 2 – Kanban Testing and Lego

K2     Start Time : 17:00     End Time : 17:45

I want to tell the story of how last year I started working with a team of fantastic developers and how we threw out scrum and replaced it with kanban. I will show you “Kanban planning around the clock”, which is our unique way of doing planning in the team.

What happens when the team collectivelly agrees to introduce a test lane on the Kanban board and agrees everything has to pass through coding, review, and testing?
How does this affect the work load of the tester, and the type of testing that needs to be done?
What happens with the view on testing and the quality that we deliver in our product as a team?

I want to tell how something magical happened when the developers started testing as well, and found bugs in each others code, and enjoyed it and had fun.
And how my role instead turned into a test coaching role for my developers and what that entailed.

Oh and did I mention we built our kanban board out of lego and did some really cool things with a Raspberry Pi.

Because in the end the best thing you can have in your career is a fantastic team you can rely on, feel respected in, and get to do my kind of testing every day.
