How I fell in love with agile testing and why you should, too! by Maja Schreiner

36 views

Published on

It all began unexpectedly and unplanned and in the world before DevOps. In 2010, while working on the software maintenance project I realised our customers need support with testing as well. Not only they didn't know how to test, but me as well, as a software engineer, didn't know much about testing except for some exercises with TDD and unit tests. The topic intrigued me and soon I found myself learning about it, practicing, enjoying and loving testing. Eventually I switched my role and became agile software test engineer, test manager, QA chapter lead and there were also times when I was working as scrum master or scrum master deputy as well.

I will explain what agile testing is, what roles and responsibilities an agile tester has and how to transmit and cherish the agile mindset in your team.

Some valuable resources and thoughtful colleagues inspired and encouraged me on my way and I'd like to share those lessons and learnings, because only with a strong and supporting agile testing community you will reach the excellency.

Last but not least, I'll tell you where the road is taking me and where it might take you as well.
