When creating our scenarios, we want to fully describe the desired functionality, but not over-describe it. We want our scenarios to do more than check for correct operation. We want to paint a picture of what’s intended that aids understanding by others (or even ourselves) in the future.

Which details should we leave visible, and which should we hide? We’ll look at ways to distill our scenarios down to their essence, and remove distracting incidental details.


Thanks to our sponsors
