ATDD – Acceptance Test Driven Development
There is an approach to software development where people with different perspectives collaborate to write acceptance tests before implementing a particular feature, with emphasis on the perspective of an customer or end user. In Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD), a common method is have people with different backgrounds and expertise involved with writing tests. For example, tests can be written with the following three points of view in mind: 1. customer – what problem are we trying to solve/what user need are we trying to address?; 2. development – what approach might we take to solving this problem?; and 3. testing – how will we know that we’ve solved the problem? The acceptance tests ultimately must represent the user’s point of view and act as a way to describe how the system will function. The tests also serve as a means of verifying that the system functions as intended.
