XBO Quarterly Webinar – Aglie Test Management with Jira and Zephyr

XBO Quarterly Webinar - Aglie Test Management with Jira and Zephyr

Do you have traceability where you can efficiently determine the cause of defects if there was an unclear requirement? Are you sure your test cases cover your requirements? Can you easily execute targeted regression when you’ve updated your software’s functionality? Now with software development teams mostly working from home or in dispersed geographies, supporting effective collaboration between remote workers is critical. In this XBOSoft quarterly webinar, our CEO, Philip Lew, teams up with BDQ’s CEO Chris Bland, to discuss the problems with working remotely, integrating the phases of testing in development in an Agile, and how this can be done using Zephyr, one of the predominant plugins in the Atlassian marketplace for test management.View this XBOSoft webinar to learn more... >

User Acceptance Testing (UAT) Best Practices – The Missing Link in Agile Practices

In Agile, developers, testers and business analysts build a working product through a series of short iterations. At the end of each iteration, the product owner accepts the software as working or not, and the team moves forward to the next iteration. This kind of acceptance is not the same as the User Acceptance Testing (UAT) traditionally done at the end of the development effort (Waterfall) by business users or end users who have the knowledge of the product to check it’s functionality and ensure that it can support them in their daily tasks on the job.UAT is still seen by most as a critical step in assuring quality software and that it meets the needs of end users, however, UAT does not fit neatly into Agile. For those implementing Agile, this often represents a missing link that causes significant pain. In this blog, we discuss how to solve this problem.

Incorporating User Acceptance Testing into Agile – XBOSoft Webinar

Incorporating User Acceptance Testing into Agile

Listen in to this webinar with Philip Lew and Cheney Ma as they discuss the problems with User Acceptance Testing and how to implement in Agile when it appears there is no time as the sprints roll on. The trick is in your process and development of user stories combined with detailed yes/no acceptance criteria and tests. Also see how it's implemented in Jira with SynapseRT as Cheney gives a demonstration of complete traceability by associated epics with user stories, user stories with acceptance criteria and tests with defects. View this XBOSoft webinar to learn more >

How to Define Agile – Is There a Definition or Standard?

The software industry is still quite young, yet as it matures, we’ve seen many development trends, technologies and tools come and go. As you know, one methodology that has become popular of late is Agile. We all know it as an adjective, we all desire to be agile. Who wants to be slow and clumsy? Those that gathered and put together the Agile Manifesto certainly chose a good name for “it”, whatever “IT” is. That’s the subject of this article, the definition of Agile or what is Agile? Agile is capitalized from here on, because we all know we’re talking about the noun, as a development methodology, rather than the adjective.

Agile Objectives – What’s Holding You Back

We've given many workshops and webinars on Agile Metrics and how to connect your agile objectives to measure and improve the agile process. In Rex Black's talk on "Stupid Metrics Tricks" in 2016 at the Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference, he discussed some of the ways people manipulate and use metrics for their own personal gain, how to that, and how to use them in a productive way.  The important thing to remember is that when developing your agile objectives, velocity can be one objective but needs to be balanced with others. And we all need to recognize that...
