30 spots now open - BDD and TDD - Driving Development through Behaviour and Tests

From: Nathan O.
Sent on: Friday, August 10, 2012 5:41 PM

Hey All,

This month, I'm really looking forward to sharing with you an introduction to Behaviour Driven Development, and Test Driven Development (BDD and TDD).

The PHP community have learned some important things from other programming languages and best practices, and at BrightTALK we have been using BDD and TDD to implement a stable platform for video distribution and live webinars.

The talk will consist of two parts:

1. - Test Driven Development - write a test and make it pass, rinse and repeat.

2. - Behaviour Driven Development - Let management write the business requirements in a language that developers can write tests against. Then make the tests pass confirming the functionality.

Examples and code will be used to demonstrate these concepts, including setting up an environment to allow testing for a new project. The language we will demonstrate with is PHP, but these concepts can apply to all languages, including Ruby, Java, Javascript etc.

What: BDD and TDD - Driving Development through Behaviour and Tests

When: This Thursday, August 16,[masked]:30 PM
