The Agile Testing Survival Guide (EN)


Ingo Philipp


Is agile testing just code for test automation? In today’s economy, innovative businesses experience increasing pressure to reduce their time-to-market. Testing, the gatekeeper between development and operations (DevOps), is constantly asked to deliver comprehensive test results in ever-decreasing and continuous cycle times, not to mention the added struggles of tight budget, time, and resource constraints. As a result, test automation seems to be the silver bullet to help testing survive within an agile development environment.

Join Ingo Philipp as he fights to prove that test automation is by no means the only solution for optimizing agile testing. Learn how to measure test coverage in terms of risk coverage on requirement and test case level, and learn why this truly matters in any fast-paced development environment. Learn how novel test design techniques help to test smarter, not harder, while keeping the entire test case portfolio streamlined in order to react on changes almost instantaneously. All in all, join and learn how to enable continuous delivery through continuous testing without drowning in test cases.
