ISTQB Agile Tester

How to become an efficient Agile Tester ?

Testing is one of the main success factors to enhance the quality of softwares and information systems :
– Implementing test activities on a sequential software development cycle is often well managed, thanks to the best methods and practises promoted by the ISTQB (International Sofware Testing Qualifications Board) for more than 10 years.
– More and more companies are now adopting iterative cycles with agile methodologies to produce softwares
– The fundamentals of testing need to be in place for any type of development and testing in an agile project is something that needs to be properly addressed
