Presentation Description

Is tester’s role on agile project same as the one on a traditional project? What values testers add to agile teams? What are the problems most commonly encountered? Do testers need to know how to write code? Is automated testing key solution to all these problems? We’ll try to answer these questions and explore some real examples from our projects and our testing community.

Testers need to understand the values and principles that support agile projects, and how testers are an integral part of a whole-team approach together with developers and business representatives.
