About the Course
Testing is critical to the successful delivery of a quality product – let’s talk!
Agile Testing Essentials is based on fundamental concepts from Lisa Crispin’s and Janet Gregory’s two best-selling books, Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams and More Agile Testing: Learning Journeys for the Whole Team. By the end of the course, participants will understand how testing fits into short and frequent delivery cycles and how each team member can contribute to the success of a quality product.
The goal of this course is to introduce a basic understanding of how agile teams build quality into their product, with the whole team engaged in testing activities throughout the delivery cycle. Testing is critical to the successful delivery of a quality product–not a phase to be executed right before delivery.
Each chapter starts with a presentation of the material, assisted with slides and/or a live discussion between Janet and Lisa. Examples are used throughout to help explain the topic, and there is an opportunity for participants to practice different techniques through exercises. After each exercise, Janet and Lisa discuss how they approach the exercise and guide participants in connecting what they’ve learned with their own teams and projects.
"This course is not only useful for people identifying as testers, especially as those most probably would not read the agile testing books. I warmly recommend it to everyone working in agile environments, as agile testing is in its core a whole team topic and everybody should know about its essentials."
--Elisabeth "Lisi" Hocke, Agile Tester
"As a test manager who has a number of staff who are either new to agile or testing, this video series is essential for helping such staff to learn the basics, especially if supported with mentoring."
--Mike Talks, Test Manager
