Testers have been advocating for more attention to quality in the software development process for years, and luckily not without success. In the age of agile, quality has finally risen higher and higher on the agenda of teams and projects. So much more even that testing no longer seems to be a one-man-full-time job in these teams. Their job is done; they’ve made themselves obsolete. Game over, or isn’t it?
In this talk we are going to explore the evolution of testing and the way testers are adapting within a changing world. We use some models to explain this and it becomes clear that not only the testers, but every team member is undergoing this change.
We see testers in agile teams adapting themselves, learning new skills and expanding their tasks beyond the traditional testing grounds. Agile testers have finally become the ambassadors of quality!
