When agile development methodology is adapted, the key is delivering a product with minimal functionalities to the client at an earliest. Then, with every delivery, more features, capabilities and functionalities are added to the product. This method of developing and delivering application results in higher customer satisfaction.When a testing team tests using Agile methodology, testing is not done during one phase, but testing is done iteratively with every release. This way of testing early and often ensures minimal damage and risk in the end application. In short, the speed and volume of change is huge in Agile testing, demanding the testers to embrace changing requirements.
Advantages of Agile Testing:
- The application with minimal functionalities is ready quickly thus pleasing the end customer. Testing is a continuous process thus ensuring that the product actually meets the requirements in each iteration as the development progresses.
- Testing is done by everybody in the team; not merely by testers.
- Bug fixing is instantaneous since testing is done in each sprint consequently keeping the code clean of bugs.
- Lightweight documentation and checklists suffices instead of comprehensive test documentation.
- Agile teams (including developers and testers) consider an application “complete” only after it is implemented and tested, contrary to other teams in which developers call the application is “complete” after coding is over.
Testers must possess full functional and in-depth knowledge of the application under test. The right kind of test automation need to be selected in order for it to be instrumental in the overall agile testing methodology. Test teams and development teams need to work closely and communicate with each other quite often.
This course will teach you the agile testing methodologies and how to approach any software project using agile approach.
