Michael Hackett sat down with FNC’s Chris Floyd to get his take on numerous Agile topics.
Chris address some of the burning questions surrounding Agile, such as teams switching from waterfall to Agile, challenges and successes his team encountered after implementing Agile, and the path to becoming a ScrumMaster.
Chris Floyd has worked in the financial services sector for 11 years. He loves to eat at dives, and in his spare time he trains diabetic alert dogs for Wildrose Kennels.

LogiGear Agile and Testing Research Center Now Live
With the goal to provide our readers with the best and latest information about testing methodologies, we’re launching the “Agile and Testing Research Center” on our website where you can find articles, videos, and more relating to all things Agile.
Our readers are active seekers and creators of software testing information. If you’ve written on this topic and think it would be helpful to your peers, please feel free to submit an article to us by emailing:
Mobile Application Testing with TestArchitect
Mobile application development is booming, and so is the need for testing. LogiGear’s TestArchitect now includes SDK UI controls for Android 2.1 and later! Currently in development are controls that will allow testing of iOS applications.
With TestArchitect, it’s now possible to automate testing for mobile applications by utilizing keyword driven testing. With
TestArchitect, it’s possible to quickly create and update tests via a keyword UI. The result is significant time and cost saving, and better software.
One of the big advantages of TestArchitect is that it is the only test automation tool that is test module centric, not test case centric. The modular approach separates actions, interfaces and test lines making it possible to design and write tests before functionality is complete in order to support Agile development. If you are looking for a fast and scalable way to automate testing for mobile and desktop applications, call us at 1-800-322-0333 to request a trial copy.
Full 2010 – 2011 Global Survey Results Now Available
In 2010 and 2011, we conducted a broad survey called ―What is the current state-of-the-practice of testing?” We began the survey in the first part of 2010 and collected data for an entire year. Invitations were sent out to testers all over the world.
Software testing is a global trend, with experts and engineers having widely differing ideas on how best to perform certain methods and practices. We wanted to capture and understand that diverse cross-section of ideas. From offshoring to Agile, we tackled some of the testing industry’s hottest topics. We’ve assembled all the sections of the survey, and you can now download it in its entirety as a PDF from: http://www.logigear.com/magazine/category/issue/survey/
