Do any of the following situations sound familiar to you? If so, then we may be able to help

TESTING IS SQUEEZED IN AT THE END OF THE DELIVERY CYCLE

How do you test throughout the development cycle to bake quality in?

TESTERS SEE THEMSELVES AS THE GATEKEEPERS OF QUALITY

Why should they be responsible for “signing off” software? They didn’t ask for it. They’re not funding it.

NOT EVERYONE WANTS FACE-TO-FACE CONVERSATIONS

What can we do to help closer collaborations without forcing those who prefer to work alone into situations that make them uncomfortable?

The wrong thing gets built

You wait for ages & when you finally get to see the requested product, its not what you asked for – how do we know what is the right thing?

WE DON’T NEED TESTERS, WE’RE AGILE

Yes, your development cycle may be highly automated but there is so much value a Tester can add to your time – let me show you!

WE NEED TESTERS, BUT WE CAN't justify THEM

You already recognise the value a Tester can bring, but there's no way your budget can stretch to hiring one full time.

Or let us to do the testing for you as & when required.

About

Testagility is me, Duncan Nisbet.

The name Testagility is a cunning mash up of "testability" & "agility" - Two of the values I hold in high regard & that I believe underpin great testing

Testability

When developing software, we need to consider how easy it will be to test that software. This involves being able to control the software to put it into different states & then being able to observe the behaviour of the software to see if it meets the desires of the stakeholders.

Agility

Its important to keep the overheads of testing lightweight so that we can respond to change as & when it is required. We need to create the artefacts that support our testing story

Principles

There are several principles which underpin my beliefs & approach to testing.
