Specification By Example is a collaborative approach to software development meant to influence the way you think about your user stories, to surface assumptions, such that the whole team working together reduces ambiguity and gains clarity. Sometimes called Behavior Driven Development (BDD) or Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD), but with few similarities to Test Driven Development (TDD), ATDD's true focus and benefit is often misunderstood or missed altogether. In this workshop, we'll discuss the ATDD cycle, the roles of the product owner, business analyst, product manager, tester, and developer. We will also work through an example Specification Workshop. Finally, we'll discuss the relationship of Specification By Example to testing and how it helps or affects the job of Quality Engineering. This will be more of a discussion and workshop than a presentation.
