I went searching today for a video on agile testing to meet today’s goal. I often go see what other people are saying so was glad for another reason. I found one on YouTube called ‘Agile Testing’ created in 2015 and within the first 5 minutes, I had to stop watching. Everything we (Lisa Crispin and others of the community) have been trying to teach about working in parallel and collaborating with developers, the presenter didn’t talk about. Mainly she was teaching a mini-waterfall. It says to me that she did not really understand what is meant by agile testing, and it made me realize why people are so confused. So many different interpretations.
It is hard to make videos - I know because Lisa Crispin and I made one called Agile Testing Essentials, but to have someone name a video called agile testing, and then really not talk about collaboration is sad.
There are many good things about anyone being able to put their views out in public and it can be good if the people watching understand they should be looking in more than one place for different opinions. This day of the 30 days of testing was disheartening for me.
