EUROPE'S GREATEST AGILE SOFTWARE TESTING FESTIVAL!

How concepts of feminism make me a better tester

Feminist thinking offers tools for both questioning and team building, for the benefit of all.

Sometimes the dynamics between testers and developers is seen as a constant battle. But a battlefield is not a place where you do favors for your opponent, or even find solutions that would benefit both sides. One revolution when moving from a waterfall mindset to an agile mindset is the quest of collaboration between these roles. It’s not always easy to achieve, as agile can be seen as a developers-only environment, and non-developer roles may fight to maintain the old structures.

In this talk we will discuss a few concepts of feminism that help build an environment of mutual trust and collaboration - even if you are working with men. We will also look into how concepts of feminism promote the critical thinking that is a requirement both for good testing and being able to fight problems in company culture.
