Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) Workshop
Behaviour-driven development (BDD) is a software development process which emerged from TDD or test-driven development. BDD takes the techniques and principles of TDD and combines them with ideas from domain-driven design and object-oriented analysis and design. This provides software development teams a shared toolset and shared processes to collaborate effectively on software development. As such BDD is one of the key enablers for automating acceptance tests and functional tests for systems. BDD allows us to capture and validate the rules governing the behaviour of our code.

Through a series of presentation, demos, hands-on labs and directed discussions, the course introduces how to capture acceptance criteria as scenarios and then to create Step Definition files using Java, C#, or an alternative language of your choice to build out the automated tests using Cucumber.
This training course is aimed at developers, analysts and testers
- Understand the role and purpose of BDD
- Understand how BDD can complement Test Driven Development
- Write effective scenarios
- Create Step Definition Files
- Automate test running using Continuous Integration
- Understand how continuous delivery can be achieved when using BDD
- Understand how continuous deployment can be achieved when using BDD
- Integrate BDD with Web applications and Selenium
As well as sharing most of the benefits of TDD. BDD, begins with the business goal in mind and engages both stakeholders and the delivery team with different views on the same page and esnures they have the same expectations. In addition it business readable and domain specific language that allows you to describe a behavior of a system without putting details on how that behavior is developed.
Sharing many benefits with TDD, BDD also brings a business readable language and set of expectations to the forefront. This is important as you are then able to understand the behaviour of a system, leaving you the ability to get creative in deliverying that behaviour. Hopefully creating finished code sooner and without the frustration of "oh yes, that is not quite what I had in mind..."

Delegates should have some appreciation for the issues involved in building large-scale applications.
Some programming experience is also required.
