Designing and Executing Tests in Agile Projects


$324.00 USD


The fast pace and the iterative nature of agile projects sometimes have a negative impact on the quality of testing and thoroughness of testing Most testing is typically done in an ad hoc and exploratory manner. In fact, in most agile projects, the process of "designing" tests does not even exist. The result is always much lower test coverage. No one can argue that the quality of a release is only as good as the quality of the tests being executed on the release. Agile teams need to realize that testing must be done in a very structured and disciplined manner, even with the fast pace of agile projects. This course deals with the time constraints imposed by the agile development methods through test design and test execution process that guarantees the hight level of both requirement coverage and code coverage.
