Implementing BDD utilizing Cucumber…the case studies presented

30th September 2014 in New York City at DUMBO Spot

There are 3 other SkillsCasts available from CukeUp! NYC 2014 - All about BDD

This session was not filmed.

Join experienced Agile Coach and QA Leader Mary Thorn as she explores 3 distinct case studies of implementing BDD in real world environments.

Acceptance Test Drive Development (ATDD), Behavior Driven Development (BDD), and Cucumber promise many things related to your User Story acceptance tests. They promise tighter collaboration between the Product Owner and the team. They promise the ability for the Product Owner and other stakeholders to be able to "write their own" executable acceptance tests. They even promise an increase in the value being produced by your teams efforts as they focus on building the "right" products.

But promises are promises and not always tied to reality. Join experienced Agile Coach and QA Leader Mary Thorn as she explores 3 distinct case studies of implementing BDD in real world environments. Mary will explore each in detail, showing you how she introduced ATDD/BDD tooling and practices. How far was she able to advance towards the above promises, what were her strategies and how she overcame resistance. If you're struggling with or hoping to introduce BDD, this session will help you develop your own strategies and prepare your for the challenges.
