Specification by Example

This meeting is being sponsored by Eliassen Group

 

Specification by Example

In this presentation, we will explore the concept of software specification by example in a step by step learning approach.  In this technique, development teams and the business come together in a structured way to develop a shared understanding of a product and then use software technologies to automate the testing and verification of the final product.  By diving right into the technique with concrete examples, we hope to spark more interest about this modern Agile software delivery practice.

    I found the presentation very informative about specification by example. I like how it can be understood by both technical and non-technical people.

    Well done Dan! Seems like a great method to ensure that a meaningful 'conversation' is had while also developing 'living' documentation that is useful throughout the product lifecycle, hard to beat that. Thanks!

    I'm pretty unfamiliar with Agile, but the speaker's examples were so easy to understand that even a neophyte could benefit.
