In this paper, Zeger describes life as a tester in a team of agile rookies. The context: a major healthcare IT company and what adopting agile did and didn't do for it. Zeger writes about the practices adopted successfully, but also highlight the mistakes and missed opportunities. Was his shot at agile just a lucky shot or one that actually proved the value of agile practises?
With a background in commercial engineering and cultural science, Zeger Van Hese started his professional career in the motion picture industry, switching to IT in 1999. A year later he was bitten by the software testing bug and has never been cured. A test manager at CTG Belgium, Zeger has a passion for exploratory testing, testing in agile projects, and, above all, continuous learning from different perspectives. He considers himself a lifelong student of the software testing craft. He is the program chair of Eurostar 2012 in Amsterdam and co-founder of the Dutch Exploratory Workshop on Testing (DEWT). Zeger muses about testing on his Test Side Story blog, is co-author of CTG’s STBoX Agile flavor, and regularly speaks at conferences worldwide.
