Agile Testing

Iterative development also means iterative testing. This can be a challenge for teams who are used to the traditional view of testing as the final phase of a project. This Agile Testing Training course will help your team learn how to strategize, plan, design and execute tests in an Agile environment. We will particularly address the challenges and strategies for testing in short development iterations and walk through the four quadrants of Agile Testing. We will cover topics such as writing acceptance criteria as upfront requirements, Test Driven Development, test automation, exploratory testing, usability testing, non functional and performance testing, continuous builds and inspections and much more. We will discuss the importance of transitioning from ‘waterfall thinking’ to ‘agile/iterative thinking’. We will discuss and share Real World practical tips of the Agile Tester role, expectations and how they can work within cross-functional teams. This is a must-have workshop that will help your team define new testing and quality norms to improve their current processes!
