F10 – 804: Acceptance Test Driven Development

Track: Agile Testing

One of the major challenges that the testing team faces in an agile environment is that all requirements are not and will not be specified at the start of the project. This requires testers to incorporate measures to address a high rate of changes in requirements and respond to changes in short iterations. Join C.V Narayanan (CVN) as he explains the process of ‘Acceptance Test Driven Development’ which helps testers in tackling this challenge and succeed in the agile environment. As part of the Acceptance Test Driven Development process, he will explain the process of creating acceptance check points, regression across these check points, associated risks and mitigation plans. Then CVN will explore the various automation possibilities using tools in agile environment. By leveraging test driven development, the testers can make a major difference to their agile projects and succeed. During the session, CVN will cover the impact of ATDD on all the three critical factors of the IT project; People, Process and Technology.
