Joint Virtual Meeting

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDT (GMT - 4 hours)
Behavior Driven Development (BDD) is an agile software development process that encourages collaboration among developers, business analysts, quality assurance experts, and customers in a project. It enables teams to use conversation and concrete examples to formalize a shared understanding of how the application should behave. BDD is largely facilitated through the use of simple language using natural constructs (plain English-like sentences) that can express the behavior and the expected outcomes. It is considered an effective practice, especially when the "problem space" of the business problem to solve is complex.
Test scripts have long been a popular application of BDD with varying degrees of sophistication. Behavior driven development highlights that tests of any unit of software should be specified in terms of the desired behavior of the unit. The desired behavior consists of the requirements set by the business — that is, the desired behavior that has business value for whatever entity commissioned IT development.
