Janet Gregory, co-author of Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams, works with you to develop a thorough understanding of testing in short iterations, the role of testers on a daily basis and how to apply such processes as ATDD (Acceptance Test Driven Development) to your Agile testing efforts.

A final simulation project allows you to set these lessons in stone so that you can bring a nuanced and rich base of experience and knowledge to your businesses and projects.
