A critical look at BDD - Andreas Döring 

 September 19, 2023

"What we're also seeing in the projects is management saying 'I've seen this once, it looks easy, so please do Gherkin/BDD now'" - Andreas Döring

Behavior Driven Development, or BDD, is a powerful framework, but one that is often misunderstood or misapplied. It is based on clear communication and precision that can convince even the most skeptical managers. But BDD is more than just a method - it is a tool for creating precise requirements and translating them into code. Andreas lets us share his experiences and at the end gives valuable tips for the application and also the integration into the team.

Quality is not a coincidence, but the result of functioning teams in which everyone can contribute all their strengths. That is why Andreas is involved in test automation and test management. In addition, he supports his associate IT consultants in their professional and personal development. He graduated with a degree in computer visualistics and has been working in the field of quality assurance since 2003.

Topics in the podcast:
