Janet Gregory presents “Current Testing Challenges for Agile Teams”

In the book that Janet Gregory wrote with Lisa Crispin (Agile Testing: A
Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams), she recommends using the
automation pyramid as a model for automated test coverage. In this model,
most of the automated tests should be unit tests and tests below the user
interface – API level tests. As more and more applications are transferring
logic back into the client side (e.g. using JavaScript) , this model may
fall apart. In her talk, Janet will address some of these issues and will
lead a discussion on what teams are currently doing in their environments.
