BDD for Non-Programmers: Live Workshop Training Course

BDD for Non-Programmers: Live Workshop Training Course

319 Phaya Thai Road, Pathum Wan, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok, Thailand

Description

BDD, or Behavior Driven Development, is an Agile software development technique that encourages collaboration among developers, quality assurance teams and non-technical business people throughout the planning, development and testing cycle of a software project.

This instructor-led, live workshop begins with an introduction to BDD, what it is and how it is used by companies to promote good software design, development and testing. We do this from a non-engineering point-of-view, with an eye on the end-users, their requirements, language, and way of thinking. We also address the communication challenges that business stakeholders are likely to encounter as they work closer with their technical-minded peers.

By the end of this training, participants will know how to:

  • Write succinct user stories that capture the usage patterns of real users of the software.
  • Translate their user stories into the behavioral language of BDD (Given, When, Then.)
  • Derive test cases from these stories, for use by engineers to implement and test.
  • Understand the relationship between product requirements, acceptance criteria, and test cases.
  • Demystify the technical jargon that impedes communication and understanding.
  • Install and use great tools for writing BDD feature files.
  • Understand and appreciate what happens once the work is handed to engineers.
  • Play a more active role in the iterative development cycle.

Format of the course

  • A interactive, instructor-led workshop with lots of activities and hands-on practice.

Notes

  • The workshop includes case studies and software samples. To customize the materials to your company’s product and situation, please contact us to arrange.
