Online Edition!

EUROPE'S GREATEST AGILE SOFTWARE TESTING FESTIVAL!

List Of Blogs Every Agile Software Tester Should Read


The Agile Software testing community is full of love, knowledge and caring. 

Everyone has something valuable to share, and we want the AgileTD community to prosper and grow through each other's help. 

Nowadays, software testers and agile practitioners are coming from a great variety of backgrounds. 

Individual experiences are different, which means that everyone will have distinct points of view and learning processes that prove useful.

The wide range of ideas, knowledge, background, project experience, and above all respect, are a never-ending resource of information and learning. That is why we created the "List Of Blogs Every Agile Software Tester Should Read"

This is a list of people in our community that have a blog and write about agile software testing on a monthly basis. 

Please keep in mind that the order does not apply to priority. Each person’s blog is as valuable and important as the other.
