Through lecture, discussion and hands-on simulations, the course explains essential principles and practices, including:
- How testing fits into the short iterations and frequent deliveries in agile projects
- Contributions testers can make to become valued agile team members
- Common cultural and logistical obstacles in transitioning to an agile development process
- Values and principles that help team members adopt an agile testing mindset
- How the whole team contributes to the success of testing practices, such as acceptance-test driven development (ATDD), test automation, and exploratory testing.
The course is filled with real-life examples of how teams collaborate to deliver high-value, high-quality software. A simulation of an agile project wraps up the whole course giving participants an opportunity to put all the puzzle pieces together, to practice what they have learned. You’ll leave with practical skills and techniques you and your team can start using right away.
