Welcome to Asia’s greaTEST Agile Event
The Agile Testing Days are dedicated to the world wide community of Software Testers with an Agile Mindset for constant learning and international networking, expanding your knowledge and significantly enhancing your daily working processes and business.
Do people cry in heaven? Agile is projected as a utopian view of the IT world. Then why are you still crying? Behind the facade of some magical success with Agile, most of the companies and teams are still struggling to get the software right (and/or build the right software, whatever English restructuring has an official term coined for it). People – who are at the center of Agile philosophy – are unhappy. This does not look like a utopia. Calling it a dystopia would be an extreme too. It is a Qtopia (to answer an Indian smirk, yes! you can also read it as ***topia).
If you want to see what a lion truly is, you need to observe it in the jungle. Agile is not what you see in the books or talks on Agile. This talk by Rahul Verma is a critical analysis of the real Agile in India – the Agile in the wild.
