nddnug Microsoft MVP Raymond Lewallen is coming to the North Dallas .NET User Group on Wednesday, September 10th at 6:00 PM to present an in-depth look at Behavior Driven Development (BDD).

BDD is driven by business value!   The practices of BDD include:

  • Driving development from the outside-in
  • Using examples to describe the behavior of the application, or of units of code
  • Automating those examples to provide quick feedback and regression testing
  • Using 'should' to help drive out responsibility and allow the behavior to be questioned
  • Using 'ensure' to differentiate between outcomes which are the responsibility of the code in question, and those caused by other elements of code as a side-effect
  • Using mocks to stand-in for modules of code which have not yet been written
