There is a quote in the book which I liked, “The ideal tester is an advocate for the end-user.”
A snippet from the official blog about this Book…
Broken into four short articles, “What you Need to Know” is a vital read for testing practitioners in the field. It identifies a real need to update and reimagine roles to cater for the agile methodology and explains why the right testing methods are essential. Practical steps to meet the changes required are laid out in the following order:
1. Reimagining the Tester for the Agile Age
2. Finding the Right Mix with your Testing Methods
3. Surprising Truth about Exploratory Testing
4. Building Good Tests: Why, What, How?
“It’s time to reevaluate how we approach testing and to blend techniques that are capable of providing the transparency and flexibility that modern software development demands. We hope to foster a greater spirit of community across the testing profession.”
