Presented at Business Analyst World, Atlanta.
From the promotion materials:
There is a special place where the hidden treasure of great requirements are found. It’s not that what we have today is bad, but it’s time to move beyond writing stodgy requirements no one else is willing to read. Diagrams are great for communicating, but most of the time you need more than just pictures. And user stories a really good step forward, but many of us find they are still missing something. The secret may lie in Behavior Driven Development (BDD). The fabulous thing, besides the cool name, is this is easy to learn, easy to use, and produces better stories, requirements, tests, and code! This presentation is for analysts who already know how to write requirements, but want to move to something more productive. This is an introduction to a new technique, using natural language to describe both the value and features of a system and each interaction. Come learn about writing requirements and acceptance criteria in business language (for your customers) that are clear and complete (for your developers) and super-duper easy to double-check (for the testers)!
