Two great talks this evening...
Title: Binding Business Requirements to .NET Code
It has always been a challenge to turn software requirements specification (SRS) into executable code. The presentation will introduce two approaches for doing this smoothly with no mysterious gaps:
1) Model driven - Agile modelling with UML / Executable UML
2) Behaviour driven - SpecFlow, the most widely used ATDD/BDD framework for .NET, is the official .NET variant of Cucumber. Full example with focus on Gherkin scenarios, automated testing and generated C# code.
Targeted audience: analysts, developers & testers.
