Just the facts
How is Agile testing different from traditional software testing?
In Waterfall project management environments, development and testing are separate steps. Developers build the product, and then testers look for bugs. In Agile environments, on the other hand, the two processes are tightly interwoven. Testers are involved as early as possible in the software development pipeline and stay in close contact with developers. Ideally, testers, developers, and product owners work together to create the highest quality product in the most efficient way possible. Agile testing is collaborative, iterative, fast paced, and adaptive.
What testing methods are used in Agile environments?
The five testing methods or development and testing styles most commonly found in Agile environments are: test-driven development (TDD), behavior-driven development (BDD), acceptance test-driven development (ATDD), exploratory testing, and session-based testing.
What are the benefits of Agile testing?
When done right, it helps organizations deliver exceptional software faster. The iterative and collaborative nature of Agile testing enables teams to eliminate inefficiencies and ambiguity early in the development process, mitigate business risk, and create a more reliable and valuable product within a shorter timeframe.
