Agile Quality Scenarios: How to Be Nimble and Precise (Joseph Yoder, Rebecca Wirfs-Brock) LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

Agile teams incrementally deliver functionality based on user stories. In the sprint to deliver features, frequently software qualities (non-functional requirements) such as security, scalability, performance, and reliability are overlooked. Often these characteristics cut across many user stories. Trying to deal with certain system qualities late in the game can be difficult, causing major refactoring and upheaval of the system’s architecture. This churn isn’t inevitable. Especially if you adopt a practice of identifying those characteristics key to your system’s success, writing quality scenarios and tests, and delivering on these capabilities at the opportune time.

We will show how to write Quality Scenarios in an Agile manner that emphasize architecture capabilities such as usability, security, performance, scalability, internationalization, availability, accessibility and the like. We will also address the when, where, and how on Quality Scenarios. This will include how to identify, profile, and outline the relevant quality characteristics. This workshop will be hands-on; we present some examples and follow with an exercise that illustrates how you can look at a system, identify, and then write and test quality scenarios.

President, Wirfs-Brock Associates
I'm best known as the "design geek" who invented Responsibility-Driven Design and the xDriven meme. I'm also keen about team effectiveness, communicating complex requirements, software quality, pragmatic TDD, and techniques for architecting and reducing risk on agile projects and programs. I'm a slow jogger... if anyone is interested in early morning runs while at Agile 2014 it'd be fun to meet and go on a run.
