Domain Driven Design (DDD) is about evolving a shared model of the domain letting the domain model drive the design. BDD is about establishing a shared understanding of “done” working from the outside in until you get there. DDD enables the use of BDD effectively creating software and BDD helps structure the conversations for DDD.
In this talk from FutureRuby, Joseph Wilk gives an introduction to the BDD framework Cucumber and gives valuable tips for getting it adopted and used by customers and developers.
After presenting some basics of Design by Contract using Microsoft’s SpecSharp framework, Greg Young explains how we can keep the Test First mentality in a Contract First world.
In this session, we'll review some of the landmarks in the history of Test-Driven Development and what they tell us about how to develop software; the ideas, techniques, objections, and misunderstandings. We'll talk about our experiences of discovering TDD and what we've learned about how to do it well, how to adopt it, and how to bring it into existing code.
In this talk, Dan contrasts the traditional top-down and bottom-up approaches with a proven "outside-in" approach based on real life experience - engaging with and listening to our stakeholders. He shows how this can allow us to stay firmly on track, leading to clean code and effective design that provides maximum value to our stakeholders, not just the famous Scrum Product Owner
It is possible to measure certain properties of code, and on the one hand, correlate them with project factors known to have economic merit and on the other, with programmer-pleasing practices. This session surveys emerging evidence that we can measure the effect of the technical practices of Agile development, and explores what we might be able to do about it to our benefit.
In this presentation recorded during QCon SF 2008, Neal Ford, an architect at ThoughtWorks, shows 10 ways to write better code. This is practical advice for developers, but application architects can benefit from it too.
This presentation gives an introduction to the principles and practices of BDD and shows how make plain text User Stories executable with RSpec's Story Framework. The framework itself is written in Ruby, but it can run against production code written in any programming language.
In this presentation held during OOPSLA 2008, Rebecca Wirfs-Brock reviews various forms of driven development in order to understand the principles and values of several design practices used today. By comparing them, a designer will get a broader view over design and will better understand which design practice is more appropriate for him.
Dave Nicolette and Karl Scotland try to introduce non-technical managers to one of the most popular Agile development techniques: Test-Driven Development (TDD). The presentation intends to be a primer for managers who want to understand the value of TDD, and of Agile in general, in software development.
