Specification by Example: How Successful Teams Deliver the Right Software
I would liked to have seen more details and in-depth analysis of each case. I also think that the hierarchy or structure of the specs e. The heart of the practice Specification by Example is the unification of specifications and tests.
This unification guides development teams to avoid several of the common anti-patterns in software development; like testing bolted on at the end, and documentation getting out of sync with the implemented functionality.
The book Specification epecification Example is the result of drawing experiences from how a number of actual project teams work with the practice Specification by Example. This makes the book particularly valuable, since its advice in not solely based on theories or opinions on how develop software, but it distills experiences of what has actually worked in different situations and in different domains.
The author chooses in my mind a sensible terminology for the practice itself and its different parts, or process patterns to use the authors term. The book has two gjko parts, the description of the process patterns of Specification by Example, and a set of case studies of project that uses Specification by Example. In addition the book contains an introduction to the practice of Specification by Example and guidelines on how to introduce the practice in organizations.
These process patterns of Specification by Examples are described together with tips about “does” and “don’ts”. The case studies part of the book contains six case studies specificayion a diverse set of domains.
As a software developer that was “test infected” 10 years ago, a think that the specifivation Specification by Example, essential for successful and efficient software development. I think this book is the best book on the market today, for learning and adopting the adzif Specification by Example. Specification By Example is an easy read and introduction into methods for using example driven acceptance tests in place of requirements documents.
The great thing about the book is that it not only provides practical explanations of how to begin specifying examples, but also how to explain its importance to management.
I used some of the explanation in the book on my current project, and it worked! This was just the lever that I needed to convince the client to make the change. I would definitely recommend this book to others who are interested in better forecasting, better group dynamics, and more coordination on their teams. Extremely useful approach to working with stakeholders of software to help everyone achieve a common understanding of what is to be done, and of how to know when it actually has been done.
Knew about this book for some time. Finally decided to buy my own copy rather than using the company copy.
