Sprecher:

Tests are Communication! We've all heard that, but how do we make use of it? In Test-Centric Development, the notion of a test provides a common framework and metaphor for all the work of the project. Not only do we have unit and story tests but also business tests, team tests and more. Developers learn that business goals can be understood using a familiar concept, while managers learn how agile development aligns with good management practice. The session will cover concepts, tools and best practices for Test-Centric Development.

Target Audience: Programmers, testers, customers, managers... anyone involved in a software development project.
Prerequisites:
Experience on a software development project in any role.
Level: Practicing

You will learn:
Attendees will gain a basic understanding of the Test-Centric approach to project organization, what it means and how it can be applied.
Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of their own roles in relation to the other roles in the project.
Participants will learn which tools work best in a test-centric project and why.

Extended abstract:
Tests are Communication! We've all heard that, but how do we make use of it?
In Test-Centric Development, the notion of a test provides a common framework and metaphor for all the work of the project. Not only do we have unit and story tests but also business tests, team tests and more. Developers learn that business goals can be understood using a familiar concept, while managers learn how agile development aligns with good management practice.
In this session, we will define and discuss the Test-Centric approach. We'll talk about the fractal nature of agile development and how it relates to the well-known "five whys." We'll cover the concepts from both the management/business side and from that of the development team.
At the technical level, there will be brief demos of tools - many of which you may already use - that work well in a test-centric project.
There will be opportunities for discussion of concepts, tools and best practices and for applying these ideas to your own projects.
