Continual Testing: TDD, BDD, ATDD and other Alphabet Soup - by Dave Mattingly


• As an Agile BA, I want my story board to go forward, not backward.

• As an Agile Developer, I want to write code only once with no bugs or mid-stream redesigns.

• As an Agile Tester, I want the system to test itself automagically.

• As an Agile Scrum Master, I want a lean, mean, smooth-running team.

• As an Agile Deployer, I want software to go live with the click of a button.

• As an Agile Business, I want value delivered in record time.

• As an Agile Customer, I want my products/services to be fast, cheap, and reliable.
