Being Agile About System Qualities: Values, Practices, and Patterns (Rebecca Wirfs-Brock)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In a sprint to deliver features, software qualities or “non-functional requirements” such as security, performance or reliability can be slighted or sometimes even ignored. This hands-on workshop introduces you to several patterns and practices for weaving quality-related work into your project rhythms and techniques for keeping system quality requirements in mind, measurable, and tangible. You will also learn some options for how you can adapt these practices to fit your preferred way of working.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand how quality-related activities can fit into your development process
  • Understand the mechanics of writing agile quality scenarios and quality-related acceptance criteria
  • How to define and use landing zones to incrementally specify key system qualities
  • How to run an agile quality workshop
  • Options for writing system quality scenarios
  • Know the difference between read-do and do-confirm checklists and natural pause points for running a quality-related checklist

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 slow jogs while at the conference it'd be fun to meet and go on a run.
