• Let's play with BDD

    Tank Stream Labs

    It has been a while since our last meetup and now we are back. This is once again a joint meetup with Agile Sydney User Group. This time we will talk about Behavior Driven Development, aka BDD. BDD is one Agile practice that has been adopted broadly in the industry. The teams who used this technique have significantly improved the quality and customer satisfaction. This meetup is a workshop and we like to invite you to learn and practice BDD together and understand: 1. What is BDD? 2. How to apply BDD? 3. What are the good and bad practices about BDD? We will focus on the core value of BDD, not just programming skills. So, you DON'T need to be a technical person to participate the workshop. Anyone who needs to be involved in the software delivery is welcome.

  • YOW! brings to Sydney Woody Zuill - Pioneer of Mob Programming and NoEstimate

    Thanks to YOW! to bring international Prioneer downunder. http://sydney.yowconference.com.au/ This Thu 7th and Fri 8th of Dec. We are so glad that Woody Zuill (https://www.infoq.com/interviews/zuill-mob-programming), who is a pioneer of the Mob Programming approach to teamwork in software development and is considered one of the founders of the "#NoEstimates" discussion on Twitter, is in Australia and can meet up with the community this week. As Woody mentioned in an interview (https://www.infoq.com/news/2016/06/mob-programming-zuill), "... many of the practices that we follow are merely by convention. It’s often as Adm. Grace Hopper has said: 'Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, 'We've always done it this way.' I try to fight that.' When we do things simply because 'that’s how we’ve always done it', I see that as an opportunity for improvement." So Woody tried different ways to help the software development team to be more effective and started to share his experiences in the community. And it is great to have him to be here just before the Christmas. We also are very proud to organize this meetup with Agile Sydney User Group (https://www.meetup.com/Agile-Sydney/) together and start to connect two communities. Please RSVP and join us!
