Presentation: David Hussman on Automating Business Value with FIT and Fitnesse

by Abel Avram on Apr 30, 2008 |

In this presentation, David Hussman, founder of DevJam, discusses about user stories, the origin and authoring of story tests, focusing on how FIT and Fitnesse (FIT living within a Wiki) can be used to automate acceptance tests.

Many people, customers, testers and programmers, must collaborate and communicate during the development phase of software products. Customers must be assured that the developers have understood the requirements. Programmers must be sure that the testers are preparing the right tests. Overall, all need to make sure that the final product is doing that which is supposed to do. This is where FIT is useful. FIT is Framework for Integrated Test. FIT is a tool designed to enhance the collaboration and communication between the parties involved in software creation. FIT allows the customers and testers to express their requirements using their own tools, like Microsoft Office. FIT will test those requirements against the actual program written by programmers, bridging the business and software worlds.

The presentation can be accessed here (1 hour and 10 minutes).

Re: Slides by John Donaldson

Not working properly for me. I see maybe 1 out of 3.

Re: Slides by Kon Soulianidis

Hi Diana,
As John also mentioned, not all slides appear to be there.

There are a few missing at the start, and some missing during as well. You can see at times on the video presentation that the slide is different to the one being displayed. And if you listen to the audio you can really see where this is being missed because the presenter makes reference to these slides quite often.

If you could take another look, that would be great.
