On Thursday 7th of August 2014 we conducted a webinar in which we provided details of the newly launched ISTQB Foundation Agile Tester Extension course and examination. We used some of the questions we were asked during the webinar to build a list of Frequently Asked Questions about this course.
We’ve also included a recording of the webinar below, and have made the presentation slides available for download.
