Thirteen Patterns of Testers Thriving in Agile Teams
For many, testing in agile teams remains one of the great mysteries of the agile world. In some organizations, testers are marginalized; in others, testers are active, engaged, and highly valued. So, what’s up? In this interactive session, Shaun Bradshaw explores the mindset and practices of “fully empowered” agile testers on high-performance agile teams. Throughout his agile coaching experience, Shaun has seen it all—from totally dysfunctional teams to those running like well-oiled machines … and everything in between. He’ll share real-world tactics to help you guide your team toward higher tester and testing performance. Together, you’ll explore the notion of quality ownership, test planning in agile, test automation patterns, test case development, and test execution in agile contexts. Through the lenses of different testing practices—risk-based, exploratory, and others—Shaun arms you with the tools to create an agile testing mindset on your team by focusing on whole team collaboration, respect, and great results.
