Agile BI: Test Automation and Test-Driven Database Development

Duration: One Day Course

Prerequisite: Agile Analytics: Value-Driven Data Warehousing and BI, or similar experience

Course Outline

You can’t really be agile if your testing is entirely reactive and manual, since testing quickly becomes a bottleneck that impedes the goal of delivering new features every few weeks. However, many agile analytics teams continue to rely on insufficient testing practices. Agile testing involves three sets of elements: tools and technology, principles and practices, and mindset and behaviors. This course will introduce you to agile testing principles, test-first development practices, the importance of testing as a front-end development driver rather than a back-end quality assurance activity, and effective open source database testing tools. This class will also introduce the mindset that testing and quality is everyone’s job and that each person on an agile analytics team has a part in testing.
