18:00 - 19:00 The Agile Testing Principles by Sofia Hedlund and Heidi Nummi

How do we make sure to maintain high quality in our products? Who are responsible to make this happen? Why should we lift the burden of quality of the lonesome tester's shoulders and start to collaborate?

The Agile Testing Principles, created and presented by Sofia Hedlund and Heidi Nummi, are just what it says; some basic easily understood agile principles not telling us what to do but rather inspire us to find out our own way. Or as Ralph W Emerson said "If you learn only methods, you'll be tied to your methods. But if you learn principles, you can devise your own methods."
This prone approach will even make that old dusty testing strategy document completely obsolete.

19:00- 19:10 Break
19:10 - 20:10 SOLID – The five commandments of good software by Chris Klug

Abstract: The SOLID principles. The five commandments of the software world. Forgotten for years, as developers focused on JavaScript frameworks with stupid names and complicated patterns. Not grasping that the SOLID principles transcend beyond frameworks and patterns.
The SOLID principles are the foundation of building good software. They are the breakers of monoliths. The decouplers of coupling. The squashers of regression bugs. One might even say that they are the creators of maintainable code.
Unless you already a believer, you need to attend this session and get on the right path. Chris, the bringer of SOLID knowledge, will go through each one of the principles, explaining what it means, what it will do for you, and why you should stop breaking it. You will even be shown C# code that explains how they help you, and what problems will haunt you if you ignore them and are faced with their wrath.


Chris Klug is a developer-badass-as-a-service that either creates or solves problems depending on who you ask. He loves creating and building things. Whether it be a new application, a new kitchen or a new RC helicopter, you will see him building things all the time. Most of the time, that means writing code and solving problems for clients at a company called tretton37 in Stockholm though. Except for the many days he spends at conferences and user groups, talking about doing things he is passionate about, and for the days he goes mountain biking, IPSC shooting, kiteboarding or RC helicopter flying.
