BDD is a hot topic; many companies are experimenting with it because they have heard that it can deliver dramatic benefits. Companies that do it well are reporting:

   - Projects taking 30% to 40% less time, and being delivered without bugs

   - QA teams routinely delivering automated tests to the Developers in-sprint - while the Developers are still writing the code

   - 90% reduction in the effort to maintain and update the automated tests

 If you want to learn to apply BDD well, this is the class for you!

WHAT you will learn:

DAY 1 – May 15

   - What is BDD?

   - What are the goals?

   - What benefits can you achieve?

   - Which teams or groups need to participate?

   - How can you achieve those goals?

       - Best practices (to emulate)

       - Worst practices (to avoid)

DAY 2 – May 22

   - More best and worst practices

   - Test Automation with BDD

       - Overview of automation tools - Cucumber, Behave, SpecFlow, etc.

       - Hands on with Python and Behave


There will be plenty of hands-on small group exercises; you will learn by hearing and also learn by doing.

NOTE: We will need a minimum of 4 students to opt for in-person (the size of breakout teams), otherwise the format will be converted to 100% virtual.


Q: What do I need to bring if I am attending in-person?

A: Something to take notes with, and a laptop for Day 2

Q: What are you doing to stay safe if we decide to attend in-person?

A: The training room we are using seats 200, and the class is limited to 32, so there will be plenty of space for social distancing.

Q: What if I can’t make both days? Can I attend just Day 1 or Day 2?

A: You can attend Day 1 by itself, however, you may not attend Day 2 only. This is because the foundations in Day 1 are needed for Day 2.

Q: What is the cost for non-members?

A: $75 (the cost of membership)
