Just-in-Time Software Testing

Add to calendar

An approach to generating great test ideas as part of agile team planning and preparation. This dynamic workshop through a series of small group activities teach delegates have to identify a rich variety of testing ideas and then filter through them to find those relevant to stakeholders Agile teams must get their product to a done in a "potentially" shippable state as new requirements are progressively integrated. Turbulent development projects experience frequent requirements changes, user interface modifications, and the continual integration of new functions, features, and technologies. Teams must react to changing priorities, technologies, and user needs. This highly interactive workshop offers a unique set of tools to help you cope with—and perhaps even flourish in—what may seem to be a totally chaotic environment. Learn how to implement practical dynamic test idea development as part of agile planning. Learn to adapt as you learn more. Getting Ready for Almost Anything They Can Throw at You Learn to identify, organize, and prioritize your testing “ideas.” Adapt the testing focus as priorities change. Decide on purpose—what not to test not just because the clock ran out! Real Techniques Proven in Real Projects Just-In-Time Testing (JIT) approaches are successfully applied to many types of software projects—commercial off-the-shelf applications, agile and iterative development environments, mission-critical business systems, and just about any Web application. Real examples demonstrate how JIT testing either replaces or complements more traditional approaches. Examples are drawn from insurance, banking, telecommunications, medical, and other industries. The course is packed with interactive exercises in which students work together in small groups to apply JIT testing concepts.
