As a software tester, inspiration could come from anywhere and everywhere. As we navigate through life, we do so in a way that test the limits of our abilities. Questions I have asked myself in the past are, “Can I make it to work on time if I leave now?”, “What happens if I use baking soda instead of baking powder?”, and on days when I am feeling especially strong, “Can I deadlift 200lbs?”.

Writing and maintaining a suite of acceptance tests that can give you a high level of confidence in the behavior and configuration of your system is a complex task. This presentation describes approaches to acceptance testing that allow teams to work quickly and effectively; build excellent functional coverage for complex enterprise-scale systems; manage and maintain those tests in the face of change, and of evolution in both the codebase and the understanding of the business problem.
