This article exemplifies one of the problems with agile. All of the advice given for "real" problems is theoretical, it doesn't work in the real world with real people. The advice in this article would work if you have a team of developers, some of who are in charge of testing, but that is never the case. In the real world testers are people that have fallen into the job with no real technical expertise, certainly no programming skills. Obviously that's not always the case, in my career I have seen one or two testers that got into writing automated tests but it's definitely the exception and not the norm.

So you have a developer that develops, then while the testers are testing the developer works on the next ticket, then at the end of the sprint all development is done and the devs do nothing while the testers are testing. If you want to solve this problem then don't give advice on what testers can be doing, that's tackling it from the wrong direction as testers can rarely even tie their own shoes....you need to give advice on what developers can be doing while testers are testing.
