  2. 2. What’s Agile Testing?
  3. 3. It’s a mindset it’s a different way of thinking about testing it’s about re-thinking software testing
  4. 4. The tester in the XP discipline helps the customer to choose and write acceptance tests, to automate them. He or she serves also as a coach developer in software testing techniques. He or she is not responsible for finding trivial bugs, this being responsibility from the developers themselves. He or she doesn’t work isolated, instead, it’s part of the team. He or she thinks in the tests that will go to CI, and help developers in pair to solve issues. D.Wildt, D.Moura, G. Lacerda & R.Helm, XP - daily practices for software development

  11. 11. TEST MANAGER TEST COACH Says “I” Uses people Does micromanaging Is not willing to change Takes credits Is tied to a strict test schedule Works with a traditional approach to testing Considers test execution outside the scope Restricts the team to execute pre-defined test cases Acts like manager Says “We” Coachs people Does not micromanaging Is open to new ideas Shares the team accomplishments Motivates the team to work together Develops an amplified testing mindset Executes test with the team whenever possible Gives testers freedom to perform exploratory testing Acts like someone responsible for organizing the test effort, not in charge of the team.

  23. 23. Testimonials
  24. 24. "Before understanding the importance of automated tests it was like more work, but after using tests to guide me on the development, I could think better in the software architecture to solve problems and feel safety during the deployments" ~@marioLopez "Having a coach that helps me to develop software with quality in mind gave me more confidence than someone just testing and pointing my errors and mistakes” @edmargomes "The automated tests made more sense to me in the moment I needed to refactor an important part in the application, and today I feel good that doing a big refactoring will not compromise my weekend, because I know things are being constantly tested =)" ~@troll
  25. 25. Conclusion
  26. 26. Agile testing is about people working as a team to develop software with quality, independent of roles, whether testers or developers.
