on Testing in youtube

Made a discovery this morning. Was too lazy to read the book „the testing practitioner“, mentioned in previous post. And felt a desire to listen to something on Software testing topic. Yes! The internet! Of course – the YouTube site. Well, did not do the big research what to look at, took on the first - Google Tech Talks, December 9, 2005, Agile testing by Elisabeth Hendrickson.

My impressions – first, it is very interesting to find out one more source of information. Feels like participating at the conference. Will come back for sure and do some more watching and listening the other day.

The topic itself, agile testing. Am not familiar with it, and especially after the teaching feel it is something different I am working with. What I caught up, the agile testing is something anti-classical approach to testing, everyone is testing and testers are the developers, there are many iterations with the releases, all of them tested and working fine, there is much about test automation and the development is test driven. Also Elisabeth Hendrickson is test obsessed and evil person to software, as she says.

If you are interested in agile testing, may have a look. It was done 2 years ago, so there may be some new things to be added.
