I spoke with Emily and Geoff at the end of the conference and we
were all a bit tired. Emily performed in the Coding With The
Stars stage at Agile 2008 and gave a great run for the gold.
One especially interesting segment was the customer story testing
segment. For this segment Geoff played the customer and wrote
a story test in TextTest and then Emily and Michael Feathers
made it pass. This appearance of the customer was well
received by the audience and judges.
Finally I get Geoff on a podcast. I recorded him last year but he will jump the queue with this one. Geoff works on a heuristic scheduling problem that is somewhat tricky to write acceptance and regression tests around. To solve this problem he did wrote his own test framework, TextTest.
I hope you enjoy this power duo and I suspect we will see more of them in the agile space.
