Writing better BDD scenarios with Seb Rose

Dec 2, 2021 · Edinburgh, United Kingdom

We are excited to welcome Seb Rose to explore the topic of "Writing Better BDD Scenarios" in Edinburgh at our next event. This is a particularly symbolic moment for us as it will be our first face to face event in nearly 2 years, and the session with Seb is one that we had planned just as the pandemic hit. So all the more poignant!

Behaviour Driven Development is an agile development technique that improves collaboration between technical and non-technical members of the team, by exploring the problem using examples. These examples then get formulated into exectuable specifications, often called ‘scenarios’. The scenarios should be easy to read by all team members, but writing them expressively is harder than it looks!

In this workshop you will learn how to write expressive BDD scenarios. We’ll start by giving you a brief introduction to BDD. You’ll then be introduced to different writing styles by reviewing pre-prepared scenarios. If there's time, you’ll get a chance to write your own scenarios based on examples that we’ll bring along.

We’ll be using Gherkin, the syntax used by Cucumber and SpecFlow - but you won’t need a computer.

Scottish Government safety guidelines for gatherings will be followed. We are grateful to our wonderful hosts Avaloq for making this possible.

Due to the limited spaces please consider if you can attend and update your RSVP accordingly so other community members can join.

See you soon

    Since the creation of the ‘Manifesto for Agile Software Development’ in 2001, many believe agile practices have become decorated to the point where it contradicts its roots. This is why, in 2015, Dr Alistair Cockburn (Manifesto co-author) developed ‘Heart of Agile’ to bring people back to what it’s about. “We recover the simplicity and power of agile by recognizing that it can be expressed in four words: Collaborate; Deliver; Reflect; Improve.” - Alistair Cockburn Through the Heart of Agile Scotland meetup
