Robot Workshop: Acceptance Test-Driven Development For DevOps Teams

Working agile involves participating in multidisciplinary Scrum teams. However, if the members representing each discipline only do what they’ve always done, nothing changes!

When teams transition into DevOps teams, roles change and begin to overlap. Specialisms remain, but members must adapt and learn to collaborate as automation is critical.

This playful, hands-on robot workshop - Acceptance Test-Driven Development for DevOps Teams - teaches teams to use specification-by-example to create and implement scenarios that matter for the business.
