2/26/2015 MEETING OF AGILE BOSTON- JOE JUSTICE AT VENTURE CAFE
AGILE TESTING with JOE JUSTICE
Testing is critical to release products. Yet the stories of catastrophic project failures due to inadequate testing are legion. Obamacare comes to mind as just one very public example. Traditionally, testing has been seen as separate from development, something that is done after the work is complete. Scrum highlights the sometimes painful reality that nothingis done unless it is tested and potentially shippable.
An Agile Testing environment requires a shift in mindset by managers, developers, and testers themselves.
This session the rigorous development and test practices used by the fastest Scrum teams today. Using real world examples gathered from years of research, Scrum Inc.'s Joe Justice and associate Lars Judge will explain how to implement the most practical, and the most powerful, Agile testing practices in use today.
The session will cover:
Best practices for Test Driven Development, Test First Development, and DevTest
The latest thinking on Unit Testing, Integration Testing, Regression Testing, and User Acceptance Testing.
Gated Check-in and Rapid Role Back in hardware and software.
Tooling to implement these new practices smoothly and quickly.
How to implement and manage Agile testing.
