Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD)

This BDD with Cucumber training course will give you the skills to implement Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) techniques in your software product development projects, with the aid of Cucumber – a “story-based” framework, which allows the desired features of a system / application to be written in the native language of the program as either specifications or functional tests.

Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) is an Agile methodolgy aimed at improving the communication and collaboration between Software Developers, Quality Assurance / Testers, Business Analysts, and other parties involved in bringing a project to fruition.

BDD allows you and the project stakeholders to have a clearer understanding where the project is at any given time. You can write Features and Scenarios in plain English that can be executed against your project code to verify the state of the project.

On this Behaviour Driven Development with Cucumber course we’ll be using a Ruby on Rails application as the basis for the team-based activities, but we are very happy to work with your particular technologies (.NET, Java, Python, AngularJS etc) in order to make sure the training is as useful and relevant as possible. We can take into account your existing technical skills, project requirements and timeframes, and specific topics of interest.

Who should attend

Ruby on Rails developers who are looking to improve the software development lifecycle through Behaviour-Driven development techniques - specifically with the aid of the Cucumber framework. It can also be very useful if you want to give your clients a clear overview of the progress of your project.
