Sometimes, we run into situations where the acceptance test effort for a user story significantly outweighs the development effort. This can happen quite often in projects where hardware and software are being developed in parallel. Hardware test matrices can span hundreds of configurations, but the amount of testing required for the software and its logic can be accepted on a smaller set of reference configurations. How do you handle these situations; what are your best practices? Come join us for this discussion!
