Trifork Academy Summit
With the implementation of agile development models we need to rethink the way we test. Rather than being a reactive approach when the software is done, we need to focus on testing from idea to production, a continuous activity right from when we start identifying the user stories to the minute the release goes into production. Failing to create a mindset and environment where quality is thought in continuously, and testing is an integrated part of the development lifecycle, is a risk to not just the quality in classical terms but also to the core principle of delivering working software of value to the customer. This means an increased focus on test automation across the lifecycle, but even more so a focus on building the quality in from the beginning rather than attempting to test it in at the end.
In this workshop Gitte Ottosen will focus on:
- The agile testing mindset
- What changes from traditional testing to agile testing
- Agile test techniques methods
- Building quality in - methods to get focus on understanding the business and getting the foundation right
Target audience: The focus of this workshop is agile testing throughout the entire cycle of the project. The workshop appeals to all members of the team.
