50 shades of Dev Practices

More than twenty years ago, Extreme Programming (XP) emerged with development practices such as Pair Programming, TDD or Refactoring, which are at the heart of the method.

That was more than 2 decades ago...
Since then, new practices have emerged that allow development teams to be even more efficient.

What would XP look like in 2021 if we had to update it?

During the session we will all have the opportunity to share practices we would like to add to our dev toolbox.

  13. @yot88 What would we add in 2021? Probably some technical

  14. @yot88 Mob programming • strengthen collective ownership / alignment •

    share knowledge • learn together
  15. @yot88 approval testing • Also called : Characterization Tests OR

    Snapshot Tests or Golden Master • outputs that need human approval to say whether the functionality is implemented as expected https://yoan-thirion.gitbook.io/knowledge-base/software-craftsmanship/code-katas/gilded-rose-approval-testing Less assertions/ less tests Must have to work on legacy code An asset for tdd Scrubbers : convert the non-deterministic text to something stable. Ex : Guid, Dates, …
  16. @yot88 Property-based testing • identify and test invariants / properties

    • something that will always be true, no matter what data you provide to your algorithm for all (x, y, ...) such that property (x, y, ...) is satisfied https://yoan-thirion.gitbook.io/knowledge-base/software-craftsmanship/code-katas/improve-your-software-quality-with-property-based-testing Given (x, y, ...) When I [call the subject under test] with (x, y, ...) Then I expect this (output) Example-based property-based
