  • How QA Engineering and Agile principles can be integrated into personal life
  • How team dynamics helps build and strengthen a partnership
  • How embracing change and continuous improvement can be incorporated into life
  • Learn that Agile and QA principles can bring a whole new angle and meaning that goes beyond work
  • How work can strengthen a relationship and vice-versa

In this presentation, a dynamic husband-wife duo invites attendees into their world, a world which seamlessly intertwines the realms of QA engineering, Agile methodologies, and the delicate nature of balancing a marriage, careers and family life. We will highlight how we draw parallels between the collaborative nature of Agile and QA engineering teams and how it relates to our own partnership. We will also reveal how the principles of adaptability and iterative improvement transcend the professional landscape and shape our household dynamics.

In this presentation we will unravel our narrative, where we as a couple explore the art of sharing ideas and maintaining effective communication in both professional and personal spheres. The journey through the agile mindset becomes a metaphor for navigating the challenges of parenthood, illustrating how embracing change and fostering a culture of continuous improvement can strengthen relationships and promote work-life synergy. The audience will gain valuable insights into leveraging Agile and QA approaches not only for software development but also for optimising the efficiency and cohesion of a modern, dual-career household.

We are hoping to inspire you based on our husband and wife relationship which overlaps with our Agile and QA engineering experience to bring you practical tips, fun analogies and innovative strategies that transcend the boundaries between the tech world and family life. This presentation promises to be a vibrant, fun and an unique experience, with the hope of  leaving attendees with a fresh perspective on how the principles of QA engineering and Agile methodologies can positively impact both professional and personal spheres, potentially leading to practical implementation both within the workplace and your personal lives.
