Can someone please point me in the right direction to find out more information about what the role of a QA Engineer is like within an Agile team?  Books, articles, videos etc anything to help me understand what the role is like, what is expected of the QA individual etc.  My reseach so far has made it difficult to identify which parts are QA and hich are Dev.

Have have no QA experience but I am think of applying for an internal position, which would be in an Agile team.


Many thanks for any advice, hints and tips :0)

Hi James,

I scanned my linklist and found this.

Book: Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams

A blog: What makes agile testing different? (Huib Schoots)

A set of slides by Markus Gärtner

And finally these two are about testing in the agile quadrants:

Let’s break the Agile Testing Quadrants (Gojko Adzic)

Breaking down the Agile Testing Quadrants (John Stevenson)

There are lots of good links in those articles. So I guess you will find more than enough information from that start point.

Good luck with your application.
