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; why isn't everyone doing it? 

Upon deeper dive, it's obvious the implementation of BDD needs a lot of forethought and planning and that teams must approach it for the right reasons. 

This talk will follow the evolution one team is currently experiencing in their shift to BDD. BDD was selected to help them modernize the work that the business analysts, manual testers, and automation testers were doing and to support the larger organization's DevOps transformation. 

Why is BDD the right methodology for this and what does the process look like? 

This talk will answer those questions and share the preparation, major milestones, successes, and failures the team has encountered along the way. Join me to find out what happens when a traditional organization completely turns their old processes upside down sets out to conquer BDD.

Session takeaways

  • Learn about a real team's current success and struggles as they work to implement BDD
  • Be armed with ideas on how to start to implementing BDD on your own teams
  • Draw a connection between BDD and DevOps for leaders who are struggling with helping their testing teams find their place as organizations move to DevOps
