Speaker: Bernd Bornhausen

Behavior Driven Development (BDD) is a very powerful tool when implemented correctly; if not, it becomes a nightmare.
Organizations are driven by the buzz words around BDD: shift-left, test-driven, code reuse, clarity, automation; to name just a few. While these are some of the benefits of BDD, they can only be realized when implementing BDD correctly; and that means organizations have to not only understand what BDD is, and what it is not, but they also have to plan properly.

In this talk, Bernd Bornhausen will describe some of the common pitfalls an organization can encounter while implementing BDD. These can be encountered at the organizational level, the team level – not talking about the test team here – , at the individual level as well as at the technical level.
