Methodologies and Testing Approaches

Agile software development lifecycles are comprised of short iterations with working software released at the end of each iteration.

In this section, you will have overview of agile development and cover some of the different approaches, including Extreme Programming, Scrum, and Kanban. You will learn the key aspects of testing in an agile environment, as well as the skillset that an agile tester should have.

Techniques and Tools

Agile approaches include the complimentary techniques of test-driven development, acceptance test- driven development, and behavior-driven development

In this section, we will explore the key features of agile testing and how techniques such as black box testing can be applied in agile projects. We will also take a look at various tools that are available to agile testers, everything from task management and tracking tools, to communication and configuration tools.
