Agile is an iterative development methodology which means taking actions on development and assessment simultaneously. Quality checking is not a separate phase. Coding and its checking are both completed in the interactive mode and done gradually. This means the final product is of high quality and complies with all the client requirements. In addition, the long-lasting continuous integration leads to the early fixing of faults. As a result, the entire team saves time, effort and costs on development.
Agile Testing is a software verification process that follows the principles of flexible software development.
Agile software testing involves all the project participants with specific experience provided by QA specialists. In this case, product checking is not a separate phase. It is closely connected with all other development stages, such as requirements, design, coding, assessment set generation, etc. The software is being checked throughout the entire development cycle.
Besides, the participation of QA testers in all creation cycles together with cross-functional team members makes allows them to contribute to the creation of a software application according to the customer requirements with the improved design and code.
This approach covers all levels and types of assessment.
Of course, each methodology needs to have some foundation and framework. Here are the principles of flexible assessment:
There are several flexible methodologies supporting flexible development. Here are some types of Agile methodology in software testing.
It is a method of organizing the QA process that affects a team-oriented approach. This means that the entire team is involved in all project-related activities.
The eXtreme programming is oriented at customers and their regularly changing requirements. Using frequent releases and available user feedback, the product will be quality assured and tested, satisfying their needs which will become clearer during the process.
Feature Driven Development (FDD) includes design and assembly of elements. The difference is that functions are made separately at the sprint stages.
Moreover, the methodology makes regression assessment very important for the whole cycle. It proves stability well, and at the same time it serves as a tool allowing the team to focus on the ongoing sprint and its functions.
Of course, the temptation to use existing cases as regression is high, but is is not very effective due to duplication the same circumstances and errors. Instead, it would be wiser and more efficient to come up with new cases reflecting critical business processes.
Transition from the very beginning is especially effective when it comes to applying the mentioned methods to existing practices. In case of regression check, we mean the following:
So, why is this verification approach beneficial? Here is a straight-to-the-point list of advantages provided by Agile testing:
We sincerely hope that this article has helped you to improve your software creation algorithms. There is no perfection, but one can try getting to it as close as possible by organizing the QA process in Agile to carry out any related procedure.
It works for anything that needs assessment, including website quality assurance, UI and usability testing research. The point is to know and correctly use the relevant principles.
