5 November 2014 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Most software bugs can be traced back to incorrect assumptions and misunderstandings. When BAs, programmers and testers have a slightly different understanding of how a system should behave, we end up with buggy software.

While it is important to find and fix bugs, it is just as important to prevent them from happening in the first place. The traditional process where "you burn the toast, I'll scrape it" is too time consuming and costly in today's competitive marketplace. Testers need to be involved earlier in the process to consistently create "perfect toasts".

BDD - Behaviour Driven Development is like a vaccine for software. It provides BAs, programmers and testers with collaboration techniques and tools (such as Cucumber) to build better software together - right from the start.

This talk will teach you the fundamentals of BDD and Cucumber so that you can start preventing bugs instead of finding them.

Speaker:Aslak Hellesøy is the creator of Cucumber and co-founder of Cucumber Ltd. He is a programmer who has been involved in the agile and BDD community since 2003.
