    On Agile teams, collaboration is the way of life. Our leaders want their team members to work closely with each other, have shared goals and even think as one entity. Why? Because we believe that collaboration leads to happier, more productive teams that can build innovative products/services.

    It's strange that companies use the word collaboration very tightly with innovation. Collaboration is based on consensus building, which rarely leads to visionary or revolutionary products/services. Innovative/disruptive concepts require people to independently test out divergent ideas without getting caught up in collaborative boardroom meetings.

    In this presentation, Naresh Jain explores the scary, unspoken side of collaboration and explains in what context, collaboration can be extremely important; and when it can get in the way or be a total waste of time.

    Vinay Krishna - BDD - an effective way to collaborate among 3 amigos - Testing is just a by product

    90 Mins

    A common misinterpretation is that BDD is another way to automate the functional testing or just a synonym to Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD). However, it’s not correct understanding. BDD doesn’t talk about testing rather it focus on development which is driven by expected behaviour of application/system. It helps to share the understanding by examples among three amigos (BAs, Developers and Testers) and helps to explore unknown. It describes what business/end users want the system to do by talking through example behavior.

    In this workshop, the actual concept of BDD is explained using case study of various real-time projects. It also covers the myths, challenges, benefits and best practices along with tools used to adopt it.
