Workshop 2: The BDD workflow

Duration: 1+½ days

What is this workshop about?

In this workshop you will discover how you can integrate BDD into your development process. The main goal of BDD is better communication and collaboration between all the roles of the development team (product owners, business analysts, testers and developers). How you can achieve this is covered in this workshop.

BDD consists of three phases: Discovery, Formulation and Automation. Each phase will be discussed in depth aiming to build the right software the first time through better communication and collaboration. In the Discovery phase we will learn you to capture the functional requirements through the technique of example mapping sessions. The next phase is the Formulation phase where you will learn writing scenarios in Gherkin based on the examples of the Discovery phase. Having formulated and reviewed the scenarios, we will teach you how you can automate them with Cucumber Open in the Automation phase. As a result of the automated scenarios you also have living documentation for the whole team about the status of the application you are building. 

Who is this workshop for?

Everyone who is involved in software development:

  • Management
  • Business Analyst
  • Developer
  • Tester
  • Product owner

What will be covered?

  • The three phases of BDD:
    • Discovery
    • Formulation
    • Automation
  • The custom BDD matrix for integrating BDD into your development process
  • The three amigo’s workshop with example mapping sessions
  • Writing specifications/scenarios in Gherkin
  • A cookbook with best practises for writing good specifications/scenarios 
  • Making specifications/scenarios executable with Cucumber Open
  • Living documentation

Objective of this workshop

After this workshop, you will have a good understanding of the BDD workflow in depth. You will know how you can do good example mapping sessions, write good scenarios, automate the scenarios with Cucumber Open and have living documentation about the software that your team is building.
