This three-day course will introduce you to contemporary testing principles and practices used by Agile teams to deliver high-quality increments of software on regular iterations.

Why should you take this class?

This course is appropriate for all members of a software development team, especially those team members performing testing activities – regardless of skill level. This course also provides value for non-testers (managers, Scrum Masters, coaches, etc.) who want a better understanding of what Agile software testing involves.

You should take this class if any of these issues sound familiar:

  • Release dates and budgets are missed due to low quality and bugs
  • Testing activities are performed at the end of the sprint/iteration or release
  • No collective ownership or collaboration exists between the developers and testers
  • The team tests the wrong things at the wrong time
  • No automated tests, no regression tests, and no idea of the quality of your software!

Students will work in teams on a common case study using Visual Studio Team Services to plan and track their work. No technical skills or experience are required. All technical concepts will be explained during class. All source code will be provided. Knowledge of Agile and Scrum is a plus.
