Workshop 1: What is BDD (not)?

Duration: ½ day

What is this workshop about?

In this workshop you will be introduced to Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD). In addition to building the software right, you will learn how to also build the right software, that meets the requirements of your client. You will learn why the concept of BDD was established and how it has evolved since it was first coined. The core concepts of BDD will be explained thoroughly and you will not only be able to understand what BDD is, but also what it’s not. BDD, for example, is not a tool, but rather a set of practices aiming to improve collaboration and communication among all members of the team (i.e. product owner, developer, testers, etc.) with the aim of discovering the unknown and reducing misunderstandings. Lastly, you will learn how you can use BDD in your own projects, based on your own maturity level, with the help of our custom BDD matrix.

Who is this workshop for?

Everyone who is involved in software development:

  • Management
  • Business analyst
  • Developer
  • Tester
  • Product owner

What will be covered?

  • The background of BDD
  • The core of BDD
  • The benefits and drawbacks of BDD
  • The misconceptions about BDD
  • The pitfalls of BDD
  • The ideal BDD workflow
  • The custom BDD matrix

Objective of this workshop

After this workshop, you will have a good understanding of what BDD exactly is and you’ll know if BDD is a good fit for your organisation. The workshop will provide you with a correct mindset for using BDD in your own projects and is the ideal preparation for our second workshop.
