Whole team approach to agile testing - Make yourself more popular while training your whole team in agile testing skill
Whole team approach to agile testing - Make yourself more popular while training your whole team in agile testing skill

As a tester, working with other team members without much testing experience, can be full of misunderstandings and missed high expectations. What happens if you introduce the 'whole team' testing approach, include them in your testing activities, sell them the pair and mob testing concepts and train them to find and develop their testing skills?

Is it though possible to achieve lasting and good quality software products while onboarding your whole team in testing in only few weeks or months? In this interactive tutorial you'll learn how to do that while enabling your team members to be productive, successful and happy.

Maximum number of participants: 30

Target Audience:
Testers at all experience levels, managers, POs, designers, developers and all others interested in testing
Prerequisites: Being interested in software testing and open to learn and prove new ideas.
Level: Basic

Extended Abstract:
Let's be honest. Testers are not popular team members. They always find critical issues and risks that prevent the product increment of being delivered on time. What if you're not always the bad guy but rather help them develop into explorers and quality advocates and help them feel the joy of testing?

Getting the shared understanding within your team of what the importance of testing is, can cost you lots of time and energy and in some teams, you will never be able to reach it. But wait, what if you introduce the 'whole team' testing approach and train them to find the 'silver lining' of their testing skills? Training various roles as testers can slow you at the beginning but you will find out the ways to train productive, happy team members in a few weeks while still delivering valuable software to your customers.

Maja will share what she's learned in her experience as test/QA leader in teams with a DevOps culture. In this hands-on tutorial, you'll have the opportunity to practice techniques for delivering good quality while coaching multidisciplinary team members in testing.

One of the main problems she would like to solve together is doing good testing work while training people on the job. Learn to divide and conquer the activities which are going on at the same time, those you use to teach people, understand what risks lie with that approach and what kind of results and problems you might have.

You will leave the tutorial knowing how to build trust, manage time effectively (and teach others how to do that) and accept different personalities and work attitudes.

Applying different techniques and checks presented and practiced, you will be able to significantly improve your leadership skills, inspire and inject your new-to-testing team members with a passion for testing and create the base for future test/QA leads.

Mob Exploratory Testing
Mob Exploratory Testing

Ever wondered how experienced testers provide feedback quickly, discover unknown unknowns, and find that issue yet again on the first touch of the application? Let's lift the curtain together and discover the magic behind exploratory testing - as a mob. Whether you identify yourself as a developer, product person, tester, or anything else, whether you consider yourself a newbie or rather experienced, you are welcome to join this mob. Let's practice and explore together!

Maximum number of participants: 30

Target Audience:
Testers, developers, product owners, UX, business analysts - anyone on a product development team
Prerequisites: Participants need to have their own laptop
Level: Basic
Having graduated in sinology, Lisi fell into agile and testing in 2009 and has been infected with the agile bug ever since. She's especially passionate about the whole-team approach to testing and quality as well as the continuous learning mindset behind it. Building great products which deliver value together with great people is what motivates her and keeps her going. She received a lot from the community; now she's giving back by sharing her stories and experience. She tweets as @lisihocke and blogs at www.lisihocke.com. In her free time you can either find her in the gym running after a volleyball, having a good time with her friends or delving into games and stories of any kind.

Unit Testing und TDD für Tester
Unit Testing und TDD für Tester

Als traditioneller Arbeitsauftrag für Entwickler sind Unit Tests für viele Tester recht unbekannt. Trotzdem sind sie interessant für Tester: um mit daran zu arbeiten, um Entwickler beim Test-Design zu unterstützen, zum Vertiefen unseres Wissens, oder auch zu mehr/besseren Unit-Tests zu motivieren.

In diesem Workshop erarbeitet ihr mit Zeb (Unit-Testing-Begeistertem-Entwickler) und Alex (Unit-Testing-begeisterter-Testerin) Unit Tests und Code (mit TDD) für ein nicht triviales Programm.

Gemeinsam arbeiten wir an Code und Tests gleichzeitig. Als Zusammenfassung schauen wir, wie dieses Format für eure Zwecke anwendbar ist.

Maximale Teilnehmerzahl: 30

Extended Abstract:
Als traditioneller Arbeitsauftrag für Entwickler sind Unit Tests für viele Tester recht unbekannt. Gleichzeitig kann es zu unseren Aufgaben gehören, 'die richtige Ebene' mit zu identifizieren oder mit Entwicklern in Pairing an Tests zu arbeiten. Vielleicht interessieren wir uns einfach dafür, wie Qualität auf dieser Ebene aussieht. Oder vielleicht wollen wir Entwickler motivieren, mehr/bessere Unit Tests zu schreiben. 
Was auch immer die Gründe sind: einfache Beispiele sind im Netz überall auffindbar. Aber wie sehen Unit Tests aus, wenn es über den normalen Taschenrechner hinausgeht? Wie schreibt man sie? Wie werden sie verwendet, um Test-Driven-Development zu ermöglichen?

In diesem Workshop erarbeitet ihr mit Zeb (Unit-Testing-Begeistertem-Entwickler) und Alex (Unit-Testing-begeisterter-Testerin) Unit Tests und Code (mit TDD) für ein einfaches, doch nicht triviales, Programm. Die Ziele des Workshops sind zweierlei:
  1.  Echte Erfahrungen in Unit Testing und TDD bekommen oder verstärken
  2. Methoden ausarbeiten, um dieses Format in euren Firmen einzuführen
Gemeinsam als Gruppe wird an den Code und den Tests gleichzeitig gearbeitet. Als Zusammenfassung schauen wir, wie dieses Format für eure Zwecke anwendbar ist.

Programmierkenntnisse sind begrüßenswert, aber keine Voraussetzung. Logisches Denken und Freude am Lernen sind wichtiger!
