Agile 2006 Day 3

Today Mike Cohn talked about agile estimating and planning (he's a good speaker) and gave out sets of planning poker cards.

James Shore lead an interesting openspace talking about the possible replacement of automated end-to-end tests with a mixture of exploratory testing and root cause analysis combined with unit testing using TDD/xUnit and a special flavor of FIT tests he coined "Automatically Checked Examples". I'm sure he'll have a article on his site soon to explain the details, but my take away from the session is that rapid delivery and verification is a very worthy goal for agile teams, and we may better achieve this by eliminating the slow and fragile automated end-to-end tests.
