SQS Agile Workshop

What is it? Are you curious? Implications on Testing? Do you want to know more?



SQS-Ad.PNGAgile software development practices are now so widespread that they are no longer considered "extreme". However, many organisations and agile teams still struggle with how to do successful testing on an agile development project.



Join David Evans, Agile Delivery Director at SQS to explore the key principles of agile development with a particular focus on the quality and testing aspects.



During this half day workshop we will illustrate why agile projects present a radical shift from traditional "waterfall" project plans and divisions of labour, and show why this requires a complete rethink of the way software is tested. We explain what it means for a project to be truly "test-driven", where the testers take a "lead" rather than a "lag" role in the development cycle.



OREILLY-The-Art-of-Agile-Development.PNGWe will also discuss the need for different testing techniques to provide complementary risk mitigation and test coverage on agile projects. Finally we talk about the importance of test automation and examine some of the testing tools and frameworks that support agile testing and test-driven development.




Prerequisites: None required, except a well developed curiosity about Agile and implications on testing!



Cost: €200
