Agile Testers can be a Harlequin
Marnix van den Ent, November 2015
At the Agile Testing Days 2015 Marnix van den Ent gave a talk in which he explained how agile testers can signal and question the (testing) process.
He views testers as a harlequin: “a servant to the team and its process, like the Italian Harlequin he is there to help to understand what is happening”.
InfoQ interviewed Van den Ent about how testing can be seen as asking questions, what testers can do to develop an art of questioning, how an agile tester can signal and question processes and practices, XP practices that testers can adopt and use, and how testers can contribute in retrospectives.
