Developers and Testers work together on testing to improve product quality
Collective ownership for testing starts with understanding testing. Rework your team dynamics to evolve past duplication and improve performance through whole team testing. Take home practical patterns for improving your team's collaboration on testing. Because teams who own testing have more confidence in the customer value of their results. As the Pragmatic Programmers say, "refactoring is an activity that needs to be undertaken slowly, deliberately, and carefully," so how do we begin? In this session, we will experience the complex interactions of an agile team focused on demonstrating customer value by answering a series a questions: Where do testers get their ideas? How are you planning to accomplish this proposed testing, tester? Why not automate all the things? Who is going to do this manual testing and how does it work? How do we know whether we're testing the right things? Build your own list of TODOs from these various practical collaboration approaches and begin deduping your team's testing for a better first day back at the office.
