Deliver software that does what it’s supposed to do! Behavior-Driven Development guides your software projects to success with collaboration, communication techniques, and concrete requirements you can turn into automated tests.

Around half of all software projects fail to deliver on requirements. Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) helps make sure that yours isn’t one of them. Behavior-Driven Development in Action, Second Edition teaches you how to ensure that everyone involved in a software project—from developers to non-technical stakeholders—are in agreement on goals and objectives. It lays out the communication skills, collaborative practices, and useful automation tools that will let you seamlessly succeed with BDD. Now in its second edition, this revised bestseller has been extensively updated with new techniques for incorporating BDD into large-scale and enterprise development practices such as Agile and DevOps.
about the technology
Behavior-Driven Development is a collaborative software design technique that organizes examples of an application’s desired behavior into a concrete, testable specification. Because the BDD process gathers input from all areas of an organization, it maximizes the likelihood your software will satisfy both end users and business stakeholders. The established collaboration practices and automation strategies in this book will help you maximize the benefits of BDD for your dev team and your business clients.
