BDD & Cucumber Training
Our BDD & Cucumber training course will give you the skills to implement Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) techniques in your software product development projects, with the aid of Cucumber – a “story-based” framework, which allows the desired features of a system / application to be written in the native language of the program as either specifications or functional tests.
Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) is an Agile methodolgy aimed at improving the communication and collaboration between Software Developers, Quality Assurance / Testers, Business Analysts, and other parties involved in bringing a project to fruition.
BDD allows you and the project stakeholders to have a clearer understanding where the project is at any given time. You can write Features and Scenarios in plain English that can be executed against your project code to verify the state of the project.
Our public courses typically rely on a simple Ruby on Rails application to which delegates will learn to apply BDD Best Practices. We are very happy to work with other technologies as required (or look at pure Cucmber & Gherkin syntax for non-coders).
By the end of the course, you will have learnt how to:
- Write plain-text Features and Scenarios
- Write Step Definitions
- Build a working app with 100% code coverage
Software developers, QA / Testers, Business Analysts, Scrum Developers and all other involved stakeholders who are looking to improve the product development lifecycle and project reporting in their business, through Behaviour-Driven development techniques – specifically with the aid of the Cucumber framework.
Delegates will ideally have a background in software development and / or testing, or experience of gathering & analysing user requirements / use cases.
If you would like to discuss custom / on-site BDD training with Cucumber for any size of team, please get in touch – we would be glad to help build a course that meets your learning requirements.
On the public scheduled BDD with Cucumber course we’ll be using a Ruby on Rails application as the basis for the team-based activities, but we are very happy to work with your particular technologies (.NET, Java, Python, AngularJS etc) in order to make sure the training is as useful and relevant as possible. We can take into account your existispecflowng technical skills, project requirements and timeframes, and specific topics of interest.
