Expanding TDD to a Whole Test-Driven Organization
Software engineers have long used the practice of test-driven development (TDD) to better inform decision-making, reduce total development time, and write well-crafted, elegant code. But this approach can benefit more than just software engineers; sales teams, product managers, QA specialists, and release engineers can all employ TDD. What if your entire organization operated with a “red, green, refactor” philosophy? The sales team could write tests for their hypotheses about what potential customers want, product managers could write tests to validate how existing customers use your product, and QA and test automation engineers could create their tests before engineers write a single line of code! Joe Leo will show how focusing on testing first is a healthy approach to product development and business solutions. Learn how coordinating these efforts leads to a test-driven organization—and powerful results.
