TDD: Test-Driven Demo?

Perhaps preparation for a demo should be treated as preparing any kind of release for an Extreme Programming project...

  • Prioritize the stories.
  • Write the story tests.
  • Break stories into tasks.
  • Program test-first, writing the task tests and completing the tasks.
  • Run the story tests as the tasks are completed.
  • Any stories not completed by demo day will not be in the demo.
  • The stories are prioritized up front but can change as marketing needs change before the demo day.
If the person doing the demo sticks to the script there should be a good chance the demo won't crash.
