Topic: Learning Leaders Learn…Always!
Celebrate the “learning leader” potential in all of us. The learning leader anywhere in the organization who defines, models, and guides the learning of others. Recognize the courage of a leader who can see, embrace, and learn from mistakes. And who demonstrates the compassion to encourage others to do the same, for themselves and their teams. Lead boldly with confidence that we can respond with resilience. Leave with five crucial guidelines for enhancing the fluent proficiency of leaders, teams, and their organizations.

Breakout: Ardita Karaj, Dennis Leber, and Michael Martin
You’ve heard that quality belongs to everybody on an Agile team. You’ve heard that testers and developers should “collaborate” in order to drive quality higher. You’ve heard that automated tests help a team continuously validate the quality. It’s time to stop thinking about it! It’s time to stop talking about it! It’s time to make it happen!
Join Ardita to see how this all works. She will walk you through building a web application driven by acceptance and unit tests.You will see how a Product Owner, Tester and Developer will create executable User stories, develop the code to validate these stories and refactor along the way. At the end, you will get a taste of what a Continuos Delivery pipeline looks like.
Dennis Leber: Why Adding Security to Your Sprints is Not the Correct Answer
Business leaders benefit from attending this discussion by understanding that Security is a continuous business operation, and not a task bolted on to development. This talk will discuss ideas, concepts, and thoughts on accomplishing success with Security and Sprints.

Topic: Continuous Delivery Requires Radical Change for Testers
Continuous Delivery is a radical change in the way we build and deliver software and it requires a radical shift in the way we thing about and achieve quality.
