Presentation Information

Hello Java

Main Presentation

The software profession faces many challenges including our general approach to requirements.  A high percentage of implemented functionality is seldom used and requirement deficiencies are frequented cited among the top five reasons for project failure.  How can we as software professionals and craftsmen know that we are producing the most valuable system at just the right time for our users?  The concept of "pull" from lean manufacturing, in combination with agile values and practices, provides a powerful guide for how we can improve our profession by allowing the incremental specification of functionality to "pull" the creation of working software.  In this workshop participants will experience how a real working system can be constructed from the ground up through the definition of executable specifications.  In a cycle comparable to that of Test Driven Development participants will see how, through a series of micro-iterations, requirements can pull the creation of executable specifications, integration tests, unit tests, and production code.
