Track 2: Agile - 10 years of Doing Behaviour-Driven Development All Wrong

A session at NorDevCon 28th February 2014

Friday 28th February, 2014

1:30pm to 3:00pm (GMT)

10 years ago, Dan North first came up with the idea of BDD: using examples in conversation to explore the behaviour of systems, then carrying those examples into code. Since then, we've learnt a lot about how BDD works, how it works best, and how it can fail horribly! Even the most experienced BDD practitioners have learnt a lot from their failures... but what were they? And how are we failing now?

In this talk, Liz takes a look at things we said back then which we shouldn't have; ways in which we abused BDD more than we used it; and things that we're still doing all wrong today. Come along to see the mistakes, listen to the stories, and hear the apologies!
