ATDD by Example: A Practical Guide to Acceptance Test-Driven Development (Addison-Wesley Signature)by G
Synopses & Reviews
With Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD), business customers, testers, and developers can collaborate to produce testable requirements that help them build higher-quality software more rapidly. However, ATDD is still widely misunderstood by many practitioners. ATDD by Example is the first practical, entry-level, hands-on guide to implementing and successfully applying it.
ATDD pioneer Markus Gärtner walks readers step by step through deriving the right systems from business users, and then implementing fully automated functional tests that accurately reflect business requirements, are intelligible to stakeholders, and promote more effective development.
Through two end-to-end case studies, Gärtner demonstrates how ATDD can be applied using diverse frameworks and languages. Each case study is accompanied by an extensive set of artifacts, including test automation classes, step definitions, and full sample implementations. These realistic examples illuminate ATDD’s fundamental principles, show how ATDD fits into the broader development process, highlight tips from Gärtner’s extensive experience, and identify crucial pitfalls to avoid.

With agile Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD), business customers, testers, and developers can collaborate to produce testable requirements that lead directly to better software. However, agile ATDD is still widely misunderstood. Now, there's a practical, entry-level, hands-on guide to implementing and successfully applying it. ATDD By Example walks readers step-by-step through deriving the right systems from business users, and then implementing fully automated functional tests that accurately reflect business requirements, are comprehensible to business stakeholders, and actually help development teams build high-quality software more rapidly. Leading practitioner Markus Gärtner describes how ATDD is applied through two example projects using two common frameworks in two different languages. Through these realistic examples, he illuminates ATDD's fundamental principles, helping both test and business professionals understand how it fits with their roles and goals, and offering concrete advice on what works and what doesn't. More than any other book on the subject, ATDD By Example focuses on the nitty-gritty details software professionals need to master. In particular, it contains excellent coverage of the crucial topic of collaborative specification discussions, and indispensable guidance on choosing and utilizing software test automation suites for use with ATDD.
