Example text

Working with Janet taught me a great deal about the role testers play on agile projects, and their importance to the team. Agile teams work closely with the business and have a detailed understanding of the requirements. They’re focused on the value they can deliver, and they might have a great deal of input into prioritizing features. Testers don’t sit and wait for work; they get up and look for ways to contribute throughout the development cycle and beyond. If testing on an agile project felt just like testing on a traditional project, we wouldn’t feel the need to write a book.

We know many agile testers who started out in some other specialization. A developer becomes test-infected and branches out beyond unit testing. An exploratory tester, accustomed to working in an agile manner, is attracted to the idea of an agile team. Professionals in other roles, such as business or functional analysts, might share the same traits and do much of the same work. Skills are important, but attitude counts more. ” Having had to hire numerous testers for our agile teams, we've put a lot of thought into this and discussed it with others in the agile community.

Our “customers” were the generous people in the agile community who volunteered to review draft chapters. They provided feedback by email or (if we were lucky) in person. We used the feedback to guide us as we continued writing and revising. ” Our most important tool was mind maps. We started out by creating a mind map of how we envisioned the whole book. We then created mind maps for each section of the book. Before writing each chapter, we brainstormed with a mind map. As we revised, we revisited the mind maps, which helped us think of ideas we may have missed.
