Janet Gregory: Agile Testing Webinar-->
EuroSTAR is delighted to present Janet Gregory as speaker for our forthcoming webinar on August 16th. Janet explores the mind-set change facing agile testers and the importance of adopting to early and incremental testing.
The 30 minute webinar will be hosted live and followed by a questions & answers session with Janet, with the full Q&A session being made available here on the blog shortly after Thursday’s presentation.
On traditional projects, testers tend to join the project after coding has started, or sometimes almost finished. Testers and programmers may not communicate except through the defect tracking system. On agile projects, testing skills are very important but can be applied in different ways. Janet talks about some of the ways to change a tester’s mindset from “How can I break the software?” to “How can I help deliver software successfully?” Part of that mind-set change, is learning how to test early and incrementally.
