Accelerating DevOps with Behavior-Driven Development (BDD)

The DevOps continuous delivery pipeline is a key feature of SAFe. Two ways to enable this pipeline are to reduce defects that cause loopbacks and delays and to have testing take less time. Behavior Driven Development (BDD) helps with these aspects of software delivery. With BDD, product owners, testers, and developers create tests that describe the desired behavior of the system. By defining tests up front, an application can be designed for easier automatic testing. Defects can be discovered earlier in the development cycle. In this session, Ken Pugh introduces BDD, explains how it works, and outlines the different roles that team members play in the process.

Learning Objectives and Key Takeaways:

  • Describe how BDD delivers build-in quality
  • Describe how BDD creates automatable tests
  • Identify how loopbacks are reduced by BDD
  • Describe the collaboration in BDD
