Doing Behaviour-Driven Development All Wrong

10 years ago, Dan North first came up with the idea of Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD): using examples in conversation to explore the behavior of systems, then carrying those examples into code. Since then, we have learned a lot about how BDD works, how it works best, and how it can fail horribly! Even the most experienced BDD practitioners have learned a lot from their failures… but what were they? And how are we failing now?

Liz Keogh takes a look at things we said back then which we shouldn’t have; ways in which we abused BDD more than we used it; and things that we’re still doing all wrong today. Come along to see the mistakes, listen to the stories, and hear the apologies
