Agile and DevOps principles require testers as an integral part of a whole-team approach, together with developers, operations and business representatives.

To be able to understand the values and benefits of Agile and DevOps principles and to be ready for transformation testers should first understand all traditional approaches to testing, with all their advantages and disadvantages – exactly what the new syllabus offers. Foundation level then branches in several advanced levels, depending on professional preferences, but from now one of the new branches is agile testing.

Testers will soon be able to get Advanced Level – Agile Technical Tester certificate for continuous testing as an integrated part of Agile and DevOps practices whit respect to ISTQB principles to test faster, improve communication, establish repeatable standards and build continuous quality.
Improvement and transformation are journeys that never end and require reliable partners like ISTQB and CROZ.
