XP Tester Activities
Here are some activities testers perform on XP teams.
- Negotiate quality with the customer (it’s not YOUR standard of quality, it’s what the customer desires and is willing to pay for!)
- Clarify stories, flush out hidden assumptions
- Enable accurate estimates for both programming and testing tasks
- Make sure the acceptance tests verify the quality specified by the customer
- Help the team automate tests
- Help the team produce testable code
- Form an integral part of the continuous feedback loop that keeps the team on track.
