Are you still running the test steps and are you still planning your two week sprint?
Does it feel like you don’t belong to the agile team?
An agile process is a light-weight process where the whole team will strive towards the same goal and as a tester in an agile team. I want to contribute to success, which means that I need to test new features fast and give the developer feedback of the new features that were implemented. The way of testing in an agile project requires different skills of the tester. I will discuss how I wrote test cases that are readable and easy to maintain and give some challenges into regression testing. I will touch on how to engage the entire team to feel responsible for the quality of the software and how I introduce the exploratory testing for the developers. Included will be an introduction to the concept DET, Developers Exploratory Testing. DET is the concept founded by Jayway. As test cases, for the regression test, I used a notation called Gherkin that is used in Behavior Driven Development. How can notation from BDD help me as a tester in a regression testing and how can DET be a part of regression testing. This type of testing is light years away from boring test steps that has to be executed and test planning as well as regression testing that require no brain activity. This type of testing requires technical skills and commitment to build the best product ever.

Henrik is co-founder of the Southern Chapter of the test community Swedish Association of Software Testing. When not speaking at conferences or in test communities, he is spending his time writing articles, blog posts and holding test courses throughout the Nordic countries. Henrik started his career as a developer, and then moved on to software testing. By speaking both languages he brings the gap between developers and testers closer.
