Agile 2006: Agile Testing – Brian Marick

Sunday 16:15-17:00

Summary

One role of an agile tester is to ask questions and catch the error and exception conditions. Testers generally focus on what goes wrong. They have a familiarity with bugs, they look at bugs, learn from them, and generalize. In agile projects, developers should get better at anticipating bugs.

With test driven development, the UI can be created, then the logic implemented. In test driven development, the sequence is:
Write a failing test -> Make it pass -> clean the code.

Cleaning the code is very important.

Exploratory testing or rapid testing is another form of agile testing.
