18 Certified Agile Tester More and more organizations are switching from the traditional waterfall-model to agile development methods (XP, RUP, DSDM, Scrum, etc.), often successfully. Testers are expected to test their knowledge and skills to apply in an agile environment. In addition, they get to deal with typical agile practices such as iterative development, time boxing, standup meetings, continuous integration, test driven development and early validation. In the five day course Certified Agile Tester (CAT) all aspects of testing in the agile context are dealt with. In theory and practice. The course prepares the participants for the exam Certified Agile Tester that is taken on the last day. If the result is satisfactory the participant will receive the internationally recognized certificate Certified Agile Tester.

20 Acceptance Test Driven Development Currently there is a growing attention for ways of delivering software faster, more efficiently and avoiding waste. Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) is an agile method used by development team and customer in close cooperation to produce quickly and efficiently. There is currently a lot of attention to these topics. This approach positions testing away from the critical path. The testing expertise is expanded in a productive way, whereas it used to be just a detective task. The ATDD training basically presents the Specification by Example approach enriched with TDD and BDD. The foundation was laid by: Gojko Adzic: Specification by Example Kent Beck: Test-Driven Development Dan North: Behaviour Test Driven Development. You will learn to apply the method by exercising and discussing the practices and patterns; thereby learning the theory. The training consists of two highly interactive days. Principles ATDD Specification by Example Collaboration techniques Practical There are many interactive exercises (above 80%). None Prerequisites: Understand the Agile mind-set. There is a focus on delivering value through collaboration. Understand what analysis and testing tasks imply. Duration: 2 days After participating in this training the student is able to: Apply techniques that help realise high quality user stories. Create examples, test cases and specifications as one, effectively usable as a starting point for development. For customer, analyst, developer and tester as well. Apply techniques that empowers a collectively shared understanding of the work to be realised. Make a start with the implementation of the ATDD / Specification by Example method in an agile team. Share ATDD / Specification by Example with others. Explain the properties of ATDD / Specification by Example and its application. The training is mainly meant for analysts and testers working in agile teams. For developers and product owners this training is especially valuable as well. ATDD/Specification by Example is a collaborative effort. All roles in a team work closely together to produce valuable software. Hence it is an advantage if the complete agile team participates in the training (development team, product owner and scrum master). 20 Courses 2015
