F11-OJ6: Acceptance Test Story Workshop

Track: Open Jam Testing Sessions

Learn how to collaborate with Product Owners to define acceptance criteria in this brief workshop. You’ll touch on how to achieve shared understanding between product owners and the engineering team prior to development and learn ways to use a domain specific language tool like Cucumber to build executable specifications from those criteria. Most importantly, you learn about effective, holistic collaborative development (as opposed to waterfalling specifications), and how it can be both productive and fun.

Please Note: There were no presentations for Open Jam sessions.
