Evolving QA for the Age of Agile

Do you feel like your agile efforts are continuously (pun intended) being stopped or slowed by QA? That is a common problem that several organizations need help fixing, not knowing that the source of the problem may not be (only) QA. Join Leandro Melendez as he takes you through the evolutions of a set of comic book mutant superpowers that our teams and organizations need to have quality in their software. In the talk, Leandro will guide you through the characteristics of genuine agile teams, some pitfalls they may be falling into, and much more on the organization's side. But as well, QA needs to evolve from the practices of the waterfall days and integrate them into the agile processes to boost the team's pipeline instead of clogging it.
