Thank you for purchasing the MEAP for BDD in Action, Second Edition.
Behaviour Driven Development has really taken off over the past few years, with more and more teams and organisations recognising its key role in successful agile delivery.
BDD is a deeply collaborative practice that involves the whole team. Parts one and two of the book aims to show how teams can communicate more effectively to deliver features that make a difference; the collaboration and discussion techniques we talk about in these chapters should be accessible to any team member.
Part Three is where things get more technical and is aimed at developers and testers who want to know how to automate BDD scenarios in a robust and sustainable way. These chapters assume some knowledge of Java, though the patterns will apply to other languages as well.
In Part Four we look at some more advanced BDD techniques, including tips for turning your executable specifications into effective Living Documentation for the whole team, as well as how BDD fits into other agile and scaled agile approaches.
I hope you will enjoy this second edition of BDD in Action
I would love to hear your feedback in the liveBook Discussion forum on what’s been written so far, and on what new material you would like to see in the rest of the book.
Thanks again for your interest and for purchasing the MEAP!
