Gravity Form first image

Written by the creator of SpecFlow and the author of The Cucumber for Java Book, this the “The BDD Books: Discovery” will give the reader the inside information on how get the most out of the discovery phase of Behaviour Driven Development (BDD). This is a practical guide that demonstrates good collaboration techniques, illustrated by concrete examples.

This is the first of the BDD Books series, that will guide you through the end-to-end adoption of BDD, including specific practices needed to successfully drive development using collaboratively authored specifications and living documentation.

In this eBook, we are going to peer into the daily work of a software product team to learn more about how they use structured conversations to help them discover what the expected behaviour of the next feature should be. We’ll start by describing one of their requirement workshops. This will introduce concepts that you’re not familiar with, but don’t worry, all your questions will be answered later in the eBook.

Key Takeaways:

• How to facilitate requirement workshops using structured conversation techniques
• How Example mapping works
• How several team members (with different perspectives) can analyze the requirements together before they start developing the software
