Developing Software That Actually Works w/ Behavior Driven Development (BDD)

  • February 20, 2014 · 6:30 PM

This talk is about building and delivering better software.  It is about building software that works well, is easy to change and maintain, but also, more importantly, it is about building software that provides real value to its users.  Behavior Driven Development (BDD) provides a methodology to help you ensure that a system is high quality, solid, well tested and well documented.  It also helps to ensure that the features that you deliver are actually solving the right problems and providing real benefit to the users and the business.

SPEAKER BIO

Steve Greenfield has been developing software longer than he would like to remember.  He started working for a computer hardware manufacturer, moved into software consulting and, for the last twenty years, has been working in the bay area for Catalina Marketing Corp.  At Catalina, he has been involved in all areas of IT management.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
