Agile Testing: Practical tips and best practices to ship high quality products

With Agile software development methodology followed by most companies in the recent past, software development focus has been changed to deliver faster releases. This also affect the way we test within the sprint. This talk aims to deliver some of the basic principles of agile testing, highlighting challenges that QA teams face with agile methodology (such as short releases, frequent changes in requirements etc) and best practices that are followed by industry. This session will also cover how QA teams in Progress are prepared for shorter releases through various new processes and test approaches. These include practices such as same sprint automation, 24x7 testing, exploratory testing, end to end business scenarios testing, Go-Live testing and Go-Live automation. We intend to showcase our approaches stressing upon the importance of automation and continuous integration. We will also explain how thinking about customers and developing customer apps helps complement the testing that QA teams do for delivering better quality software.
