Group Description

In this group, we discuss how to test software in projects that are using an Agile style of development (http://www.agilealliance.org).

We expect most members of the group to be independent testers working on an agile team. However, we're open to discussions of other types of agile testing: developer testing, customer acceptance testing, and so forth.

We would like most of the discussion to be specific:

Q: "I am in situation X. I've run into problem Y. Does anyone have any advice?"

A; "I was in a very similar situation last year. We tried Z, and it worked OK."

Generalities - "I think all agile projects should do Z" - are acceptable, but too many of those tend to drive away the practitioners.

This is not a group to discuss whether such a thing as agile testing exists, whether agile software development is a good idea, whether XP is a nefarious plot by programmers to gain license for sloppiness, and so forth. We do not require list members to be agile enthusiasts (though the owners are), but we require them to acknowledge that people are testing in projects that call themselves agile, and that our group is about helping those people do the best job they can.

The list owners will (gently at first, then forcibly) keep the signal-to-noise ratio acceptably high and the tone helpful.

We allow job postings, but only if the post is from someone in the company looking for an Agile tester.

You may post announcements of events and courses that relate specifically to *agile* testing. In other words, not testing certification courses, or testing conferences/classes that aren't relevant to agile development. Same goes for any surveys. Post other announcements on the agile-ANN list.

If you have a general question, such as "What is agile testing?" or "What tools are best?", please research that yourself. Only ask specific questions related to agile testing, such as "Has anyone whose team is doing XP used Quality Center?"
