Lynn Winterboer


Agile Analytics Coach and Trainer

Winterboer Agile Analytics

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 key 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.
