A person I know and greatly respect on the subject of “Agile testing”(Lisa Crispin) gave a presentation last night at Agile Denver. Another person I know and greatly respect on the subject of Agile and Scrum(Brad Swanson) summarized her “Secrets of Successful Test Automation” on his blog. It’s short and sweet:
Lisa, the original presenter, is also co-author of Agile Testing. She is super sharp when it comes to Agile testing and Agile automation. I observed one of her training classes when I was at another client. Her book is great, though I found it a little overwhelming at times. Mostly just due to it’s volume and advanced level. (Also partly due to my background being more in development than testing). I highly recommend you subscribe to her blog.
Brad, the ‘blog summarizer’, is someone I’ve worked with in the Agile community. He is a leader for AgileDenver, and he also was a leader in organizing an outstanding conference, MileHighAgile. I highly recommend you subscribe to his blog , too.
I hope you noticed that I listed a couple of people I know and greatly respect on Agile and Scrum. The number of people on “that list” is pretty darned small.
