In this session I'll teach you a simple, practical technique that you can use to break down any user story.
BDD and ATDD enthusiasts already know how useful it is to have the three amigos - tester, product owner and developer - meet to discuss a new user story before they start development. What many teams don't have is a clear structure for these conversations. Sometimes they can take a long time, or drain the group's energy by going round in circles.
Over many years of teaching hundreds of people about BDD, I've developed a simple practical technique that will allow you to break down a story in about 25 minutes. All you need is a pack of coloured index cards, some pens, and a curious attitude. Learning Outcomes:
- the purpose of a three amigos session
- a practical technique for visualising what you know, and don't know about a user story
- the difference between rules and examples
