I am a big believer in the philosophy of working backwards from the customer. Although there has been a lot of focus and impetus on working with Specifications first and Code last; my aim in this talk is to take this one step further.

I believe that one should start with the developer and their integration experience first and then work backwards from there to define the specification and finally resulting in code.

There are significant advantages to this approach and I plan to use the talk to share about how do I do so in practice and how teams can build the muscle although it initially feels not natural to do so.
