Avoiding Coupling and Using Mocks (Webinar)

September 23, 2008 — Posted by Al Shalloway

Listen to the webinar audio Avoiding Coupling and Using Mocks (audio of the webinar)

Scrum# is an extension to Scrum that was developed by Net Objectives to solve challenges that were being encountered by many teams adopting Scrum. Read about more about the issues which Scrum# was created to solve.

webinar on September 02, 2008 presented by Alan Shalloway discusses how, in Agile projects, neither full up-front designs nor no design proper. This webinar discusses some techniques for decoupling modules early on. In other words, although we may not know how things will change, we often know of dependencies between modules that will morph over time. He presents three case studies:

  • Decoupling informational dependencies between components
  • How to define the API for a component being built by one group and used by another
  • Using mocks to never be blocked - avoiding delays caused by dependencies of different tiers

The webinar is available to registered users of the Net Objectives website for 30 days and to Net Objectives customers always. However, you can still download:

  • The audio track of the presentation as a podcast
  • A (lower resolution) iPod Video that you can watch on your iPod or in iTunes

Note: This webinar is close to an hour long, so the files are large.
