Specification By Example Workshop

19 February 2014

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Specifying collaboratively is a great way to build a shared understanding of the business domain and helps teams to produce specifications and tests that are comprehensive, easy to understand and highly maintainable.

By the end of the session attendees will be able to apply the Specification by Example technique to help them:

Collaboratively define a specification for development using examples
Align development, analysis and test activities
Deliver living documentation that will remain valuable after the project release
Achieve an in-depth shared understanding of the implementation
Remove opportunities for misinterpretation of the requirements
Identify edge cases and boundaries
Understand the most important examples that the system needs to cater for
Understand how to move towards selective automation.
