Jumpstart Testing with Acceptance Test Driven Development

Team can struggle to find the right level of detail prior to beginning development due to “chunky” user stories that are too large or insufficiently defined. Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) is a solution that can quickly slice those “chunky” user stories down to testable size. ATDD is not a new concept, but a time-honored way to elicit requirements. Join Susan as she discusses the difference between user stories and traditional requirements, and why both are necessary for success. Learn how to use traditional requirements techniques to write requirements in terms of acceptance criteria / acceptance tests for sufficiently small stories with details when needed. Using a real-world example, Susan will apply the ATDD process to quickly define acceptance criteria that can be coded and tested without the heavy documentation associated with traditional requirements. Finally, Susan provides valuable tips on incorporate ATDD into your company by tapping the talents of your business analysts, customer advocates, or test leads/coordinators.
