As agile becomes mainstream, many teams have gained basic understanding of agile testing principles and practices such as Specification by Example/ATDD, and the whole-team approach to testing. Unfortunately, there are always new problems to solve! This workshop will address common testing-related problems experienced by more experienced agile testing practitioners, such as managing technical debt, feature acceptance, exploratory testing, working with distributed teams and/or large systems, continual learning, and improving ROI of automated tests.

Janet Gregory will ask participants to prioritize their most puzzling testing problems, and then leads them through group exercises and discussions to help find ways to solve them. Come with your list of burning issues, and be prepared for fun, interactive learning.
