Course Overview
Summary: 

A common thread among virtually all software development organization is the lack of efficient and effective communication between the various functions such as product definition, development, testing, documentation, training and deployment. This results in a lower product quality through more defects and less customer satisfaction, longer development cycles, and unreliable estimates. In Agile organizations, the problem manifests itself through stories that are not focused on value but on system change, stories that do not connect with the bigger picture, stories that are too big, and stories written by the wrong people or at the wrong time. Agile story writing through the practice of acceptance testing is a very effective solution to this problem.

This course is consistent with behavioral driven-development.

Net Objectives offers two courses focused on writing stories with acceptance tests:

  • Story Writing with Tests, a course for developers and testers.
  • Acceptance Test-Driven Development, a course for Product Owners (or equivalent), developers, and testers
