Agile, DevOps, Testing and Low Code have shared environments that facilitate working together. Spurred by the current greater demand for excellence, these methods are more than simply adopting new tools and processes. Under the current economic environment, value add is shaped by the need to drive business innovation while ensuring resource (cost) optimization across development and IT operation. Transforming the business requires the tech to meet speed and economics. Expert practitioners and thought leaders share their experiences and show how to develop a business case and build the foundation towards getting significant return on investment.

Arie van Bennekum, Co-Author of the Agile Manifesto
Agile is everywhere these days. Most organisations claim some sort of Agile but the benefits often are far what is from expected. People hide in roles, stick to some rituals but integrated delivery per sprint in an efficient, high value, high quality way seems still far away. Arie will talk about the next step in which delivery is integrated work of all disciplines getting to that sprint delivery that means production and extends that even outside the company, changing potentially the coding practices that not only create speed but value as well.

Whether we like it or not, AI is here to stay and as Testers it is our job to test it. So … How do you test an AI system? This talk addresses some of the risks, opportunities, the technology, the techniques, skills and patterns that Testers need to remain relevant.
UNICOM’s Code of Conduct & Views on Diversity
Our approach is that our events are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity or religion. We do not tolerate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, Twitter and other online media. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers. Please bring your concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff.
Diversity: In our endeavour to be the provider of knowledge to the business community, we understand that this depends on hearing from and listening to a variety of perspectives that come from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and military service. We welcome diverse speakers for all our events, we do not always fully achieve this goal, but it is an ongoing process.
We are inviting speakers – thought leaders, subject experts and start-up entrepreneurs – to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about their work and vision in these three fields. Please let us know too if you would like to participate in the panel sessions only.
We are also planning short “how to do” sessions or full-day workshops to run as pre or post conference events. Let us know if you have a related topic that you want to run as a workshop or an extended briefing.
Please complete the speaker’s response form submit a proposal to present at this event.
