Understanding the precise requirements for a new piece of software is never an easy task for developers. It’s even more difficult when the programmers are not familiar with the business domain. BDD can help you tackle this problem in a methodical manner that not only serves to deliver the right thing in the most economical way but also allows you to tease out the very language of the domain through collaborating on examples.

The domain the team were working in, currency exchange, has its own terminology and common practices. BDD can get developers up to speed quickly through the use of actual business language in scenarios. During this talk, you will discover Jon's story from his experiences; learn from examples of scenarios and how these evolved with the growing understanding of the Forex business domain; how writing them can sharpen your requirements and explore how “mobbing” can be used as an effective way to develop these scenarios.
