GETTING REAL WITH BDD: HOW REAL TESTS LEAD TO REAL SOFTWARE

A session at Devoxx UK 2013

Tuesday 26th March, 2013

4:10pm to 5:00pm (GMT)

Stakeholders are often criticized for not knowing what they want. If they don't know what they want, how do you know what to develop? It's a two way street and you both need to be on it.

There's no better way to communicate about the software you're developing - no way more real - than by using tests, real tests. Tests tell the story of how the software is expected to behave and the purpose it serves. They also demonstrate the software does what is expected. If either half of the equation is broken, you have something tangible to fix and a basis for conversation.

In this session, we'll explore agile development tools that help create real tests that show real results and collect real feedback. We'll explore the concepts of BDD and ATDD through use of tools from the Arquillian Universe such as Arquillian Drone, Thucydides and Spock.

Testing features and behaviors has never been so clear and so real! You have a way to communicate with stakeholders about the software in which you're both investing.
