The software development process can be intricate and complex. At Beta Breakers, our quality engineering and DevOps strategies aim to simplify these processes. One way of doing so is implementing agile testing.

What Is Agile Testing?

Unlike most types of testing, agile testing begins right at the beginning of a project. It is used hand-in-hand with continuous testing, typically starting off with the continuous integration phase. Plus, since agile testing is a part of DevOps strategies, it also follows the rules and principles of agile software development.

When deploying agile testing, you can expect the following three methods:

  • Behavior Driven Development (BDD): Improves communication to ensure that everyone understands each feature of an application before development.
  • Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD): Integrates other team members such as customers, developers, and testers to incorporate all perspectives
  • Exploratory Testing: A type of quality assurance test that emphasizes an informal approach to finding bugs and UX issues

The Advantages of Agile Testing

As a DevOps strategy, agile testing can bring many benefits to your product. Below are just some of the many ways agile testing can help:

  • Simplified process
  • Continuous Testing
  • Constant feedback (and decrease in feedback response time)
  • Tests can be performed by the entire team, not just by QA testers
  • Better communication between testers and developers
