Geoffrey is an enthusiastic professional and a real explorer. As an explorer he likes to discover new things, learn more and get inspired. His career started in testing as a tester, test manager and test consultant he helped to make sure software products obtained the high quality standard. But his curious and discovering nature was never satisfied with just testing.
This led him to the agile way of working and he consulted his first Scrum project 5 years ago. He learned this way was more effective, but it struggled with delivering quality. After his first project, he learned a lot and started investigating more effective ways to deliver quality. Within his last 4 years he has worked as an agile test & quality expert.
His great passion is to inspire others, teach professionals and help companies with tackling their struggles. This also lead to becoming Dutch Software Testing Champion in 2018(after the 2nd place in 2017).
DevOps! Let's Change QA!
Testing, Quality Assurance and delivering quality. It all radically changed over the last few years. This all because of our new agile way of creating software. Now the last evolution called DevOps has been taking the stage more & more in the last 2 years. But how do you really deliver quality if changes go faster, when we are all working together & we are not supposed to be only testing. So what is the new role of testing?

But how do you really deliver quality if changes go faster, when we are all working together & we are not supposed to be only testing. So what is the new role of testing?
During this presentation we will take a look at:
– What are the good practices we need to keep;
– What are the things we need to forget from the olden days;
– What new things do we need to learn; -How will we get there?
– Do we still need manual testers?
– How does it work for big banks like ING & Rabobank?
During this presentation Geoffrey will give insight in practices and answer all questions raised above. Furthermorehewill show what are the biggest pitfalls of companieshe hs consulted. All these things can help you to build software ‘first time right’ while being faster. But, most importantly, the presentation itself, it will be full of the most powerful tool for future DevOps development: examples!
Powerful Refinements with BDD
Refinements are the start for you and your team of your product development in the Scrum. The start for building those awesome features & products. But are your refinements as effective as could be? Or are you not really refining yet and still have big analysis up front, keeping you stuck in a waterfall like way of working? Or are you still struggling with delivering increments within the short iterations in Scrum?
This workshop is all about getting started with Behavior Driven Development or BDD. This will help us to start delivering value faster and make Scrum work for us. All of this starts with doing powerful & productive refinements. That’s also were this workshop focuses itself on. Going from a product backlog item to ready for sprint and eventually delivered value(right the first time).
So, if you hate rework and want to deliver products faster, come to our workshop!
