4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful book explains how testing provides value on an agile team, June 3 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Agile Testing introduces a software tester to working in an agile environment through introductory and intermediate topics, continuously explaining how they can work as a member of an agile team. It shifted my understanding of what testers are and how the reader can contribute to software development projects.

The book provides exposure to a variety of topics, from culture to project management to coding. Some of these sections are covered more in depth, such as the Agile Testing Quadrants. The explanation of this concept and how it can help to define the testing that would provide value to the technical (team) and business (user) stakeholders was very valuable, and led me to share this information with our team during an informal lunch and learn presentation. Other areas that helped me to think of my job in a different way were the chapters on agile teams and the relationship between coding and testing.

I would recommend this book to any person looking to understand how testing provides value on an agile team and need examples of what that can include. It is at the least an introduction to this type of role, but in my experience it went beyond and changed how I approach testing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great contribution to the agile testing literatute, Oct. 22 2009

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams (Paperback)
Agile testing is a much welcome addition to the agile movement.

What I liked about this book was it's thorough coverage of the testing quadrants (first proposed by Brian Marick). Here Lisa and Janet walk testers through all the various forms of testing we typically see on agile projects, and how they relate to agile.This is the first time I have seen this in print and is very needed.

Janet and Lisa also do a thorough job of explaining to testers the valuable role they can play on agile projects, and most importantly how their roles will change from what they are used to.
They cover stories, estimation techniques, and give you much of what you need to function on an agile project.

If you are a tester, and you think you will be working on an agile project at some point in the near future, this book will definitely help you make the transition.
