Janet Gregory "Do testers need to code?"
Janet Gregory, to jeden z dwóch, obok Alana Richardsona, gości specjalnych Agile & Automation Days.

In agile development, the whole cross-functional team shares responsibility for building quality in to their software, and for making sure all necessary testing gets done. Since the dawn of “agile”, back in the XP days, we’ve heard lots of talk that testers on agile teams should have programming skills. Some agile teams cling to the “Software Developer in Test” model, trying to hire programmers who are willing to work exclusively on automating tests. Others say “everyone should be able to do everything, including coding”. Do testers really need to be coders to succeed on agile teams? Janet will address this issue, and shares her ideas on specialized skills testers need to add value to their agile teams – and these aren’t coding skills!
