We all know that the tester’s role on the agile projects is not the same as the one on a traditional waterfall’s. But what values do testers now add to the agile teams? What are the most commonly encountered challenges that the testers nowadays face? Do they need to know how to write a code? Is automated testing really the key solution to all these issues? We’ll try to answer these and (of course) some of your questions at this session and explore some real case examples from our international projects and our testing community.
We would like to help testers to find the needed power to understand their real values and principles that support the agile projects and let them become aware that they are also an important part of a whole-team approach, together with the developers and the business representatives.
