Testing Like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT)

TMNT can teach us how to be better agile testers and team members. Cowabunga, dude!

What do 4 fictional teenaged anthropomorphic turtles, who practice the art of ninjutsu and live in the sewers of NYC, have to do with agile testing? Quite a lot.

Like scrum team members, each of the TMNT is a master of a specific tool and has skills unique to themselves among the team. This rich diversity of team members and turtles encourages collaboration and teamwork to get the job done. 

The TMNT constantly use their ninja skills and aren't afraid to make mistakes on their road to mastering ninjutsu, just as agile testers constantly hone their craft and aren't afraid to fail fast, inspect, and adapt.

Join me as I tell a tale of "Heroes in a half shell" who can teach us valuable life lessons, while having fun.
