Abstract for "A testable architecture and understanding what to implement":

An application can only be tested successfully using test automation
and executable specifications if the architecture is testable.

The tests must be fast, reliable, and offer good diagnosis precision.
They must also be easy to write, maintain, and execute. Tests without
these properties will be abandoned after a while and the effort
creating them will be lost.

You will learn about a proven architecture style that offers
testability and fast feedback in this session. We will examine an
example using well known tools to achieve the goal of working software
in production.
