Agile/Lean P2P June 22nd - Creating a Test-Infected Team, Jason Cheong-Kee-You 



This P2P group is open to employees of companies that are Communitech Network Members

Topic: Creating a Test-Infected Team
Speaker: Jason Cheong-Kee-You

Testing is one of the most essential programming practices. It is necessary to create sustainable software. If that's true, why do software development teams often fail to adopt testing? Why do teams that write tests sometimes find them more costly than beneficial? I will share my personal stories of where testing has gone wrong. I'll also explain how to successfully transition a team to testing.

Speaker Bio:
Jason Cheong-Kee-You is an Agile Coach in Toronto. Since 1997, he’s spent ten thousand hours figuring out how to create sustainable software. He now apply that knowledge to create high performance teams. He is deeply passionate about creating sustainable software through tests.

Notes from last month's session are on the blog (link below).
