I’m delighted to announce that the Software Test & Performance Conference opening keynote speaker is Robert Sabourin. Rob is not only one of the best-rated faculty at STPCon, but he’s also one of the top celebrities of the software test community. Plus, he’s a really engaging speaker.
Rob’s keynote is entitled, “Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire,” and focuses on the unique challenges, opportunities and paradigms used by the Scrum agile methodology. The description reads, in part,
This keynote highlights significant challenges and critical thinking required to get things done and transition organizations to Scrum. Robert Sabourin has helped several important organizations adapt their development life cycle models to this system. This talk is based on the three Rs — real, recent and relevant experience — that describe his many examples and case studies in this chronicle of his experiences in moving companies to Scrum.
STPCon Spring 2008 will be April 15-17 at the San Mateo Marriott, San Mateo, Calif. That’s close to San Francisco International Airport, and at the northern end of Silicon Valley.
