Conquering BDD: How One Team Is Making it Work
Behavior-driven development, or BDD, has been a buzzworthy term in the testing and development community for several years. At first glance, the elements of BDD seem simple: Testing scenarios! Living documentation! Automation! Reports! That sounds great, so why isn't everyone doing it? Upon a deeper dive, the implementation of BDD needs a lot of forethought and planning, and teams must approach it for the right reasons. Christine Ketterlin Fisher will detail the evolution of one team in its shift to BDD. BDD was selected to help modernize the work that the business analysts, manual testers, and automation testers were doing and to support the larger organization's DevOps transformation. Christine will share why BDD is the right methodology for these goals and what the process looks like, as well as the preparation, major milestones, successes, and failures the team encountered along its journey to turn their old processes upside down and conquer BDD.
