Behavior Driven Development (BDD)
Good automated tests consist of two parts: the specification that describes what we are testing, and the implementation that describes how we are testing. That means the specification describes the behavior (business rule or functionality) and the implementation contains all the steps necessary to automatically verify this behavior. This is the part that non-IT people will also see. The specification serves as living documentation of the requirements of your application.

Separating them allows you to write the specification part of the test before you’ve written a single line of code that actually implements the requested behavior. This makes it possible to do Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD), often also called Behavior Driven Development (BDD). You can elicit requirements early in the process and describe them in a clear way. This training provides a hands on experience after which attendees can create functionality that is fit for the purpose of using Behavior Driven Development
How can I create functionality that is fit for the purpose of using Behavior Driven Development?

- can describe test dependencies in Gherkin scenarios
- know how to test Gherkin scenarios with Pickles combined with Cucumber
- know how to integrally present test results so that the statuses of business processes are clear
- Installing and setting up your development environment
- The TDD/BDD cycle
- Writing your first scenario

- Using parameters
- Techniques to keep your test code clean
- Gherkin tricks (Backgrounds, Tags, Tablets, Scenario Outlines)

Most of our courses are available in both English and Dutch. We have a selection of training courses which are only available in English, which will be on that training page. Our rule of thumb for courses in the Netherlands is – the course is in English unless everybody speaks Dutch, then the course is in Dutch. If you want to be sure you are in a Dutch course, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org in case the information on a specific date is not available on the course page.
Unless mentioned otherwise, the course fee includes the cost of training material, exam cost, the use of the location, catering and parking.
When you click on the orange arrow, the menu will unfold further. More locations and dates might appear.
The costs that apply to our programs initiated from the Netherlands are exempt from sales tax as per Article 11-1-o of the 1968 Sales Tax Act. In other locations/countries, the prices shown are excluding VAT, which will be added.
