SAM SIG: Test-Driven Development & Software Architecture



  • The Monthly Meeting of the SAM SIG


    Topic: Test-Driven Development and Software Architecture

    Presenter: Rob Myers, NetObjectives, Extreme Programming coach and Agile practices and object-oriented design techniques mentor

    We’ll discuss how Test-Driven Development techniques and software architecture affect each other.  Rob will give a brief overview of the two primary areas where TDD is applied in an agile development process.  Rob will then open up the discussion to questions and concerns about how TDD fits into the overall process, how it impacts architecture, how architecture impacts testing, and how testers, developers, and architects can work together to get a quality product delivered.
