What is an Agile Tester?

May 23, 2010 0

“We define an agile tester this way: a professional tester who embraces change, collaborates well with both technical and business people, and understands the concept of using tests to document requirements and drive development. Agile testers tend to have good technical skills, know how to collaborate with others to automate tests, and are also experienced exploratory testers. They’re willing to learn what customers do so that they can better understand the customers’ software requirements.” Source: “Agile Testing”, Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory, Addison-Wesley, 2009

This installment in the Evolutionary architecture and emergent design series walks through an extended example showing how design can emerge from the concerns that float up from testing. Testing is only a side effect of TDD; the important part is how it changes your code for the better.
