As more companies are moving toward agile development, there isn't a lot of knowledge on where QA fits into the development life cycle. The objective is to go over some common problems and some possible solutions that could be implemented for those riding the agile train.

Lloyd has experience in game design, voice acting, test management, has been a producer on multiple titles and has also started a 3rd party customer service and testing lab. He has recently worked with Microsoft on the Connected Experiences team and has led teams to help with the release of Microsoft’s day-one launch of the Windows 8 platform. Lloyd is currently working at CrowdCompass by Cvent as the Quality Engineering manager.
