Better Software through Collaboration

Built-in quality allows quicker delivery of business value. One of the key practices in realizing built-In quality is Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD) / Behavior Driven Development (BDD). This course describes how the triad (customer, tester, and developer) creates acceptance tests to provide a joint understanding of the requirements. It shows how to use those acceptance tests as a communication and verification tool. Applying these skills streamlines communication within the organization, decreasing rework, raising customer satisfaction, and promoting trust within the organization. These methods have demonstrated an ability to be able to lower released errors by up to 90%. This course is based on Lean-Agile Acceptance Test-Driven Development by Ken Pugh.

This behavior driven development training course helps participants understand how to transform requirements accurately into testable specifications. This is a collaborative, efficient manner that minimizes waste. It addresses requirements, specifications, implementation, and testing.

In this Behavior Driven Development Training, You Will:

  • Principles of Acceptance Test-Driven Development
  • How to turn requirements into acceptance tests
  • What is a good acceptance test
  • How to use acceptance tests as a communication vehicle
  • How ATDD embodies Build Quality In and Shift Left
