Lisa Crispin – Agile Testing Essentials

Lisa Crispin – Agile Testing Essentials
English | Size: 15.05 GB
Category: CBTs

Agile Testing Essentials LiveLessons 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.

Every team member, including testers, programmers, team facilitators, business analysts, designers, product owners and product managers, will find value in this course.

Goal: To introduce 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.

Approach: Each topic 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.
