Whether it's object abstractions or whole systems, technical people often favour an internal, decomposed view, looking from the inside-out... or just looking at the inside. But when looked at from the outside a view based more on composition and questioning emerges. This is not just an observation on developing a system from the outside-in, slicing through a system to reveal architecture through usage, but also on how we can approach tools, processes, techniques and practices. They are often adopted and included with an insider's perspective, put in place without ever properly asking what we want from them.

So, what do we want? We may say we want testing, but what do we want from testing? We may say we want logging, but what do we want from logging? We may say we want clean code, but what do we want from clean code? We may say we want an agile process, but what do we want from an agile process? These are harder questions, but their answers can make for better solutions.

The Call for Papers is now open for Agile Testing & BDD 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
