Description
  • Learn Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) through hands-on experience
  • Build the right thing through enhanced communication
  • Improve code coverage and quality in the code base
  • Increase innovation, team collaboration, and product quality while lowering risk
As a pillar of agile development, implementing BDD will allow your organization to spend more time focused on quality up front and reduce the cost of defects found later in the development lifecycle. This course will coach your team in how to transition to this innovative way of working together and show you how to continuously grow your skills while leading to measurable product quality improvements.
 
In this highly interactive course, you will learn the key concepts of BDD and leave with the capabilities to practice and promote BDD at your organization.
 
Who Should Attend
This course will benefit everyone who is involved in the definition, development, and quality assurance of software-related products including customers, product owners, business analysts, SMEs, developers, and testers.
 
We recommended basic familiarity with concepts of the agile methodology. Our Agile Fundamentals - ICAgile Certified Professional (ICP) class is an excellent opportunity to ensure that your team’s understanding of those concepts aligns with industry standards.
 
Laptop Required
This class involves hands-on activities using sample software to better facilitate learning. Each student should bring a laptop with a remote desktop protocol (RDP) client preinstalled. Connection specifics and credentials will be supplied during class. Please verify permissions with your IT Admin before class.
