Subject: Test Automation In The Hands Of “The Business”: How Specification By Example Is Changing How We Plan and Test Our Solutions
Description: We’re seeing an increase in the adoption of Specification By Example (SBE) in the forms of Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) and Behavior Driven Development (BDD): Tools and techniques designed to complement and accelerate these adoptions especially at the enterprise solution level (where even a small reduction in solution delivery time can have a very significant return on investment.) Quality Assurance (QA) professionals are uniquely prepared to lead the adoption (and prove the effectiveness) of these solution verification and validation methods due to QA’s need and desire to understand detailed and general solution behavior, architecture, usability and more. This talk will include a review of these methods including their origin, several use cases, and tools, techniques and resources for personal investigation.
