Beyond BDD

A session at Lean Agile Scotland 2015

Wednesday 7th October, 2015

2:00pm to 2:30pm (GMT)

BDD might just be software development nirvana. But what lies beyond? What happens when a team get really, really good at BDD? Can you get so good you don't need it anymore? Let's find out.

Matt Wynne, lead author of 'The Cucumber Book', will explore how a team evolves as they learn BDD. You’ll recognise pain-points you’ve felt yourself, discover the ones in your future, and get inspired about how far your team could get.
