Lisa Crispin and I have created a course on Agile Testing with the focus on how testers transition from a traditional testing team to testing on an agile team.
Over three days, we put theory into action through a variety of exercises. This course teaches testers how to fit into agile projects, contribute to the whole team and overcome common cultural and logistical obstacles in transitioning to an agile development process. It explains the values and principles that help testers adopt an agile testing mindset and how to accomplish traditional testing processes, such as defect tracking, metrics, audits, and conforming to quality models. Students will learn how to complete testing activities in short iterations, and how testers contribute on a daily basis during each iteration and release cycle. Through interactive exercises and group discussions, participants will discover good strategies for driving development with both executable and manual tests. The course is filled with real-life examples of the many ways agile testers add value.
I also offer it to specific client as well, so please contact me if you are interested. See my website for more details. www.janetgregory.ca/CoursesOffered.html
