Quality is the responsibility of the whole development team.” We’ve all heard this phrase (too often), but what does it really mean? Behavior Driven Development (BDD) is a practise that can help teams communicate better with their stakeholders and amongst each other on what they are going to deliver. Using techniques like Example Mapping, teams work with their PO to get to concrete scenarios and examples of the functionality they want to build. These examples are basically your tests, documentation and the ultimate form of shifting left.

We will share with you the principles of Behavior Driven Development and how to practice them. We will give you the skills to facilitate better refinements with your team(s) to deliver optimal business value and finish your sprints. It will help you break down and slice your user stories into realistic scenarios and use these directly as your tests and documentation.

This tutorial is perfect for Development engineers, Test engineers, Test managers, Business Analysts, Product Owners and/or Scrum Masters.
