Get past the myths of testing in agile environments - and implement agile testing the RIGHT way. * * For everyone concerned with agile testing: developers, testers, managers, customers, and other stakeholders. * Covers every key issue: Values, practices, organizational and cultural challenges, collaboration, metrics, infrastructure, documentation, tools, and more. * By two of the world's most experienced agile testing practitioners and consultants. Software testing has always been crucial, but it may be even more crucial in agile environments that rely heavily on repeated iterations of software capable of passing tests. There are, however, many myths associated with testing in agile environments. This book helps agile team members overcome those myths -- and implement testing that truly maximizes software quality and value. Long-time agile testers Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory offer powerful insights for three large, diverse groups of readers: experienced testers who are new to agile; members of newly-created agile teams who aren't sure how to perform testing or work with testers; and test/QA managers whose development teams are implementing agile. Readers will learn specific agile testing practices and techniques that can mean the difference between success and failure; discover how to transition 'traditional' test teams to agile; and learn how to integrate testers smoothly into agile teams. Drawing on extensive experience, the authors illuminate topics ranging from culture to test planning to automated tools. They cover every form of testing: business-facing tests, technology-facing tests, exploratory tests, context-driven and scenario tests, load, stability, and endurance tests, and more. Using this book's techniques, readers can improve the effectiveness and reduce the risks of any agile project or initiative.

Thoroughly reviewed and eagerly anticipated by the agile community, User Stories Applied offers a requirements process that saves time, eliminates rework, and leads directly to better software. The best way to build software that meets users' needs is to begin with "user stories": simple, clear, brief descriptions of functionality that will be valuable to real users. In User Stories Applied, Mike Cohn provides you with a front-to-back blueprint for writing these user stories and weaving them into your development lifecycle. You'll learn what makes a great user story, and what makes a bad one. You'll discover practical ways to gather user stories, even when you can't speak with your users. Then, once you've compiled your user stories, Cohn shows how to organize them, prioritize them, and use them for planning, management, and testing. User role modeling: understanding what users have in common, and where they differ Gathering stories: user interviewing, questionnaires, observation, and workshops Working with managers, trainers, salespeople and other "proxies" Writing user stories for acceptance testing Using stories to prioritize, set schedules, and estimate release costs Includes end-of-chapter practice questions and exercises User Stories Applied will be invaluable to every software developer, tester, analyst, and manager working with any agile method: XP, Scrum... or even your own home-grown approach.
