Welcome to a world where Modern Software Requirements are not only simple & intuitive, but also fun to create. You’ll end this session cum workshop with something which you’d like to try as soon as you go back to your work next week.
User Stories were created as part of eXtreme Programming more than 20 years back. They are text based descriptions modeled on the requirements of end users. It has worked relatively well in unifying the language of requirements.
However, Modern Software Development is a complex undertaking. The emergence of new technologies like MicroServices, Cloud Computing, Machine Learning and Distributed Systems aided by ever increasing (faster & reliable) internet connectivity has changed the way we develop software today and a text based user story is neither intuitive nor sufficient to explain the requirements
It’s also extremely difficult to draw some kind of intuitive relationship between different user stories. Often times, a couple of lines of text can draw multiple interpretations which are limited only to people’s imaginations.
The need of the hour is NOT to add additional texts, but to have a Simple Visual Model for describing Software Requirements which is NOT ONLY intuitive (even for a 6 year old) but also DOESN’T require someone to learn totally new syntax or styles.
That has become a reality using a visual Software Requirement Model called CDP, where the CDP stands for Consume, Does and Produce. A visual model is extremely powerful as compared to texts because as per science our brain processes the information 60,000 times faster than it does for texts
In this session cum workshop, The participants shall be exposed to CDP requirement model (What & How ) with multiple real time examples, a couple of which will be done by participants along with the instructor for better understanding. At the end of this session, I’ll also some of the testimonies about this technique
