As business analysts, we write a lot of requirements. But how do you know that the application is actually doing what you wrote in your requirements? Fortunately we have tools and techniques that allow us turn our requirements into automated tests written in the language of the business, turning your requirements documents into living, breathing documentation.
This discussion will focus on helping attendees gain a better understanding of the reality behind this practice through an interactive discussion with local practitioners in this area.
Never been to a IIBA/COHAA LIG? LIGs are a unique event where a facilitator presents a 5-10 minute primer on a topic, and then we open up for discussion. Everyone is encouraged (sometimes required) to add to the conversation through either questions or their experiences and knowledge. We limit attendance to 20 people to enable an open discussion, so sign up early.
