Behaviour Driven Development & Behat: Telling stories through code
Stories? Scenarios? BDD? Are these just more words in the ever-growing list of jargon that developers have to know? Or are they something more important than new terms to memorise?
In this session we'll look at how BDD fits into the software development work-flow, how to tell user stories through features, and how to automate them in Behat.
These techniques will help to ensure you're writing well designed and tested software that focuses on what the users want from a system.
We'll finish up with questions for Matt and discussions, then head across the road to Footlights (http://www.footlightsbar.co.uk/) for drinks
Getting to the room within the venue
There are two ways into Codebase. You want to find the one at the top of the hill (and NOT the one at the bottom with Codebase written on it, very confusing we know!).
Go to the blue arrow on the map.
You will see the upper entrance. Go in here, then take the lift to Floor L.
Someone will greet you on floor L.
