How many testers have bugs in their defect queue that were opened more than a year ago? More than two or three years ago? The fact is software development efforts are almost always focused on delivering new functionality, leaving the “work arounds” in place for bugs released in prior versions of applications. Want to know a good way to close out those bugs once and for all? The answer is a Bugfest! Join Shaun Bradshaw as he explains how he has implemented a bugfest using Kanban to bring visibility to the myriad of outstanding problems left over from previous releases, to order and prioritize the work to clear out the nastiest offenders, and ultimately to exterminate those pesky bugs!
