How to be More Effective with Behavior-Driven Development (BDD)

Behavior-driven development, or BDD is a process aimed at helping ensure that software requirements are well-defined and implemented properly. It is important to build what your customers want and need, and BDD helps get you there.

Unfortunately, many organizations bring in BDD for the wrong reasons. Instead of investing in the culture changes required to embrace BDD, organizations jump right into tools and implementation of BDD as an easy way to get non-technical users involved in the testing process. This diminishes the value gains from BDD and can erode confidence in the practice.

Watch Max Saperstone from Coveros and Chris Colosimo from Parasoft as they discuss how to bring in BDD the right way by emphasizing a culture of collaboration that can take your test automation to the next level.
