    Integration tests are used for behavior description and feature delivery. From the test-writer's perspective, they are often seen as a capstone, or, to the outside-in school, an initial 10,000-foot description of the landscape. At Hashrocket we've been perusing the integration testing...

    At Hashrocket, a vital part of our process is standing up together every day. In 2006, Jason Yip wrote a thorough overview of the Agile/Scrum meeting style known as the 'standup'. It's available here . Yip concludes the article with the accurate observation that "[i]t’s really just st...
