Behavior Driven Development/ Acceptance Test Driven Development

BDD Workshop

Behavior Driven Development

This program introduces Behavior Driven Development (BDD) to the audience and follows a lifecycle approach where audience get to learn how to practice BDD in real life projects using some the best BDD tools like Cucumber, Jbehave and Specflow. Test First practices can reduce defects drastically, promote better design, make the code easier to understand, to change and cheaper to maintain. This workshop will give your team a solid understanding about BDD/ATDD, no matter what language they use or what background they come from. Participants will learn how to write high-quality unit tests, or more precisely, “executable specifications”, to write better designed, more maintainable and more reliable code.

In this 2-3 days intensive course, Participants will also discover how BDD helps keep development focused on the real requirements, resulting in a higher quality product for the end user. Return on investment is immediate – these are skills that every developer needs to master. This workshop teaches the principles of Test First and BDD, which are applicable in any modern programming environment. We discuss ATDD/BDD tools for Java, .NET, Ruby and JavaScript and participants can choose any language to practice BDD in class.
