Workshop: Agile Testing – Techniques to Survive and Thrive

Let’s face it – agile testing is different. First of all, there are challenges integrating successfully within the teams themselves. Scrummerfall is still running rampant. Then there is the dichotomy of testing vs. quality and balancing yours and the teams focus. Finally, delivering value is also an imperative, but a challenge.

In this dynamic workshop, we’ll explore the tools, techniques, and mindset you have to bring to the table in order to successfully test in agile contexts. We’ll examine risk-based testing, iterative test planning, exploratory testing, agile automation strategies, test metrics, and test artifacts. We’ll also explore the Agile Release Train in agile at-scale frameworks and the implications to your testing iterations and planning. And we’ll wrap up with a solid overview of User Stories and Acceptance Test Driven Development (BDD).

Gone are the days of one-sized fits all testing techniques. So we’ll explore adaptive approaches so that you thrive in your agile testing. You’ll leave this workshop with your toolbox overflowing with new ideas and approaches.
