Behavior Driven Development (BDD) is the next evolution of Test Driven Development (TDD) where it focuses your testing experience on validating your system's requirements instead of how the system is being built internally. In this session, we will review the theory behind BDD and how it will change the way you code by focusing on requirements in order to build software that matters! We will then delve into real implementation by using TestBox, the xUnit and BDD framework for ColdFusion (CFML).
The objective of this presentation is to introduce attendees to the basics of behavior driven development and also the application of such concepts using CFML and TestBox, the BDD testing framework for ColdFusion.
