What is Behavior Driven Development?

BDD is a technique for helping team members collaborate and discover requirements in their project. It uses examples to illustrate the intended behavior of systems before they're implemented, so that the team can discover more examples and develop a shared understanding of the requirements. In this talk Liz will show why conversations are the most important aspect of BDD, how examples can help you discover things early, and why discovery is an inevitable part of software development.

Who is Liz Keogh?

Liz is an experienced Lean and Agile coach, trainer, blogger and well-known international speaker. Coming from a strong technical background, her work covers a wide variety of topics, from software development and architecture to psychology and systems thinking. She is best known for her involvement in the BDD community, and was awarded the Gordon Pask award in 2010 for deepening existing ideas in
the space and "coming up with some pretty crazy ones of her own". She graduated from Bath many years ago, spent the first five years of her career working for a local company, and she is happy to have been invited back!

    Thought (and hopefully conversation) provoking take on BDD. Blew away my misconceptions about BDD and encouraged me to give it another try.

    Excellent Meetup - The talk clarified quite a few issues for me. In an industry that deals predominantly in absolutes it was refreshing to hear a talk from someone who seem sot match quality and pragmatism in a really effective manner.

    Would recommend to others!
