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.
