BDD – Delivering business value through communication and collaboration
Having worked with agile teams for years, and having used one flavour or another of BDD almost since it was first introduced in 2006, like many others, I totally misunderstood it, used it badly and made a mess of it for a good while. Mistake after mistake, I learned a lot of things and today I believe I have developed a decent approach that I continuously try to improve. Through these years of many failures and some success, one thing clearly emerged: it is that I believe in the true value of BDD.
BDD is about communication, collaboration and delivering business value. It’s based on this principle that we built our tutorial. Improved communication and close collaboration help defects prevention; systems built with BDD are built right the first time. One of the nice side effects of BDD is the creation of an automated regression suite that covers all areas of the deliverable, allowing testers not to waste time on manual regression testing and to focus on a more in-depth exploration of the systems.
