ATAGG - 7 November 2014
Agile Testing Alliance Global Gathering (ATAGG) is a first of it’s kind annual conference specifically focused on “practical agile & agile testing”!!
Most of the conferences in the Agile world focus only on Agile as a new belief system or Scrum as a framework. However, literally no conference has focussed on agile engineering and testing practices!! Agile Testing Alliance is pioneering in exploring an all round, global, independent view on such daunting “practical” questions through it’s Global Gathering. Agile Testing Alliance Global Gathering is a one of its kind conference having 2 tracks dedicated for hands-on sessions called “dojos” along with experts coming from across the globe, sharing their experiences and expert advice on these practical agile testing scenarios and questions.
