"I passed thanks to this course! I really recommend it, it contains everything from the syllabus, Maged enriches the content with some very valuable concepts, team velocity, burn down and burn up charts, etc. Just go through the course one time taking the course quizzes, then take a couple of sample exams, know what you need to reinforce, go through the course again to reinforce any concepts you missed on the first run. Pass the test. *I used the 1.5 speed on the video on my second run and was able to understand it perfectly. Thanks!!"---Mario Martinez
"The material is very good; the delivery is overall adequate The instructor is somewhat difficult to understand, although you can understand him if you concentrate. The video of him talking...VERY distracting. But basically, I am learning a lot and feel comfortable that at the end of the course, I will be well prepared for the ISTQB® Agile Tester exam."---Cassandra Myer
Agile testing is an evolving approach to software testing that follows the principles of agile software development as defined in the Agile Manifesto.
A tester on an agile project will need some new skills compared to a tester working on a traditional project. Testers must understand the values and principles that are backing up agile projects in different environments. Testers should be involved in every activity of the agile team, not just in plain testing activities.
Testers are an integral part of an agile team together with developers and business representatives. Testers on agile teams use their expertise in creating testable examples of desired behavior from business representatives and collaborating with the developers to turn those into specifications that guide all development activities.
There are a lot of things to learn about testing and quality in agile projects. The ISTQB® Agile Tester Extension will give the testers, test managers, and others that are interested in the knowledge to be part of agile teams and achieve high performance at your work.
