Presentation: Quality Assurance – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
All too often, Quality Assurance is a second class citizen in the world of software development. We are the organization everyone loves to hate. Transforming QA into a first class organization takes poise, audacity, and perseverance. Parvez will present philosophies and concepts which can be applied regardless if the SDLC is Waterfall or Agile. He will discuss why QA is often given a bad reputation as a contrary organization. Followed up with suggestions on how to transform the department into a partnership with all parties. Lastly, he will discuss Agile QA and how it differs from Waterfall QA. He will share his experiences on moving from Waterfall testing to Agile testing and why one works better than the other.
Speaker: Parvez Yusufji
Parvez Yusufji is Director of Quality Engineering at CenturyLink Technology Solutions (formally known as Savvis). Parvez has led a successful and aggressive transformation of the QA department at CTS. Originally the team consisted of traditional waterfall manual testers. Now the team is staffed with Quality Engineers who actively push the boundaries of test automation and Agile testing practices. Due to his work with CTS and Agile Testing, Parvez has been a guest speaker at AgileLINC and St. Louis Agile. Prior to his role at CTS, Parvez was an IT consultant specializing in the telecom industry in a variety of roles from project manager to analyst to architect.
