What if you could spot a bug before implementation? Are there tools and techniques that can help you with accomplishing that? We’re going to present you several ways of exploring problem space to find incorrect assumptions, unknown unknowns, and risks, that may have resulted in bugs during and after development.

Quality Assurance shifts left. We will show you how at Spartez and Atlassian we’ve moved to the very edge. You will be get familiar with several techniques that support learning process, help grow of mutual understanding of a problem. With those techniques equipped you will be able together with your colleagues explore problem space and find invalid assumptions, unknown unknowns, risks no one considered, that may have resulted in bugs during development.

What are the three biggest takeaways you will take from the workshop?
  • Learn about Quality Assistance model and how it works.
  • Learn what Feature KIckoff is and how to use a deck of cards, as a physical mnemonic, to drive the meeting.
  • Learn about feature decomposition techniques unveiling complexity from various perspectives.

How this presentation is going to affect you?
  • You will shift left and help your organisation benefit from your critical mind and thinking as soon as feature idea is conceived.
  • You will start looking at a feature from various perspective and find even more relevant risks and scenarios worth exploring.
