1/2 day Tutorial held at XP 2013 conference in Vienna
Many teams struggle with the implementation of user story acceptance criteria and having a shared understanding about the expected story outcomes. This often results in missed stakeholder expectations, ad-hoc assumptions made by the team during implementation and conflict between team members and the product owner around testing.
In this tutorial, you will learn how specification-by-example and acceptance test driven development will address team conflict, missed stakeholder expectations and overall increasing the level of clarity on the project end-to-end. The presentation will cover the theory behind ATDD, case-studies and practical experience from real projects and several hands-on exercises to try out the presented concepts.
You will leave this tutorial with a fundamental understanding of specification-by-example and its benefits, as well as concrete pointers on how to get started using it in your own projects.
