Software Testing: Alpha Testing in an Agile World

Agile is quickly overtaking waterfall as the methodology for developing products. This brings interesting and important challenges as well as a mind shift in executing Alpha tests. Testing has more complexities that you might imagine. There are a variety of approaches, procedures, and strategies for conducting testing throughout a product test. This course with Mike Fine focuses on illuminating the variable and proven techniques used to achieve quality assurance on products, and the issues and challenges you may encounter when switching from the traditional Waterfall methodology of product development to the agile processes. Mike covers the basic concepts of what makes quality testing, goes over existing processes, how to transition to agile testing, key techniques and tools, and analyzes best practices for communication, product delivery, and timing, testing, and alignment.
