Non-Functional Requirements are an important part of building any solution, system or piece of software, but are also a part that often gets missed when it comes to requirements gathering. Our final talk of 2014 attempts to explain what they are, why they are important and how to find them.

About the speaker:
More by luck than any intent Stephen Booth is a Technical Business Analyst for Service Birmingham Ltd, a Joint Venture company between Birmingham City Council and Capita Group.  This means that he spends half of his time talking to Customers about what they want from their systems and the other half translating that into to something the Technical Architects, Applications Support Analysts and Developers can use to build or select something that the Testers can demonstrate will do what the Customers said they wanted. He used to be an Oracle DBA and UNIX Systems Administrator, and many days wishes he still was.
