U07: Embedded Agile Testing - A Practical Example - CLOSED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learn how testers and developers can collaborate to improve the quality of the software In this workshop we want to show how we have been working at eBay with embedded testers and how this has improved the quality of our software and the productivity of the team. Embrace the opportunity to take part in an agile development team: code together, test together, devise solutions together ‘­ by the end you’ll realize we aren’t so different. You will work in groups of around 2-3 people. This will be your agile team. Some coding knowledge would be great, but will not be necessary for the exercises. Takeaways: See how other testers are working through practical examples and experience sharing. How can we find bugs earlier than in the traditional/evil testing phase? How can we collaborate in order to bridge the gap between developers and testers? Understand how developers test and what testing they focus on. Realise that our goals as developers and testers are similar: in the end we aren’t all that different. Please bring a laptop with the Google Chrome browser installed.
