This is one of the most common questions discussed among the Agile Community – What happens with the undone User Story of Current Sprint? Why does this happen? How should you deal with the undone user story? What should become of such stories? What should be done with the product backlog item itself? Should be it split or should it be carried into the next sprint? Should the team receive any velocity “credit” for completing a portion of the story? And how do you prevent it from happening again? This article addresses all of these questions.
Definition of done is one of the Agile fundamental things. Yet many teams do not see its importance or are unsure what Definition of Done actually is. The term is also often confused with the acceptance criteria, leading to mis-communications and false expectations. So, let’s have a look at this important agile concept – the definition of done.
There is no such statement as ‘I am now prepared for the interview‘. When facing a Testing interview no matter how many interview questions and answers you have gone through – there is always more to read Continuing on our Interview questions series, let’s see some more interesting FAQs related to Domain, Software requirements, Agile Kanban, Career in Testing, SMAC Testing, Automation and Selenium Webdriver.
User stories and Use cases are both used to document the requirements. They both capture features of the system. They’re both used by the development team to construct the best solution. They can be used to organize and categorize requirements. And they can be used as references during testing to ensure that the requirements have been met. While user stories and use cases are similar, they also differ in substantial ways. The difference can be challenging to understand and explain, especially if your team is making a transition from a Waterfall software development environment to Agile and Scrum. Each serves a distinct purpose, and they both have their place on a well-run software project. We will try and cover User story vs Use case in this article…
If you don’t get the user needs right, it doesn’t matter how well you execute the rest of the project. Requirements are the foundation for all the project work that follows. The software development project success lies in understanding the user requirements accurately and appropriately, and then implementing them in the final product. The purpose of a software project is to build a product that provides value to its customers. Thus customer involvement is the most critical contributor in eliciting requirements. Prior to agile, software requirements were described with respect to system. Though not bad, but still there was less user interaction or requirements were not formulated (in detail) from User perspective. The result – industry adopted a new standard. You might have heard about User Story in Agile Software development projects. In this article, let’s see what does User Story actually mean!
How do you know the magnitude of a project? How to derive project estimates? How do you know what to build? Or in testing terms, what should be the expected behavior of a software that you are testing? High-level requirements, Software Requirements Specification (SRS), Functional Specification Document (FSD), User Stories or Use cases – whatever you call it in your project – is essentially a requirements documents which forms the basis for software development & testing. A Software requirements specification (SRS) is a description of features and functionalities of a software system to be developed.
