About this Book


The goal of this book is to help get teams up and running with effective BDD practices. It aims to give you a complete picture of how BDD practices apply at all levels of the software development process, including discovering and defining high-level requirements, implementing the application features, and writing executable specifications in the form of automated acceptance and unit tests.


This book has a broad audience. It’s aimed both at teams who are completely new to BDD, and at teams who are already trying to roll out BDD or related practices, like Acceptance-Test-Driven Development or Specification by Example. It’s for teams who struggle with misaligned and changing requirements, time wasted due to defects and rework, and product quality. It’s for practitioners whose job is to help these teams, and it’s for everyone who shares a passion for discovering better ways to build and deliver software.
