Software teams continue to successfully leverage Jira to manage their development processes. While Jira remains as the central place for teams to manage their work, there is often uncertainty about how to manage their testing efforts and improve on quality goals. The good news is many patterns and solutions exist to help companies extend their Jira workflows and deliver quality software. Join Ryan Lloyd in his session to learn how your team can improve testing and make progress towards your goals.

In 2018, Ron Jeffries wrote a controversial post: Should Developers Abandon Agile? With Agile going mainstream, some of the key values are being misunderstood. How can Behavior Driven Development (BDD) help? Laurent Py walks through a real example from a DevOps team deploying 10+ times a day in production using both BDD and Test Driven Development to address these challenges. Learn how to combine excellent collaboration with excellent code to see if BDD can save Agile.

During the Sponsor Booth Crawl on Wednesday, attendees are invited to stop by the SmartBear booth to chat over sushi and beer.

SmartBear continues to strengthen its relationship with Atlassian by leveraging SmartBear tools to bring more value to the users of the Atlassian Marketplace.
