The Pitfalls of doing BDD - Example Mapping

Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) is not a tool thing. It's about talking to each other and capturing conversations. Unfortunately a lot of teams pull tools, like Cucumber, out of it's collaboration context and into the automated test context.

On this evening Kenny Baas will give a short introduction about BDD and then dive into these underlying practices. Then we discuss why we need them to avoid the pitfalls that will bring harm to software development.

After this short presentation Kenny will show you a technique called Example Mapping which he has been using to discovery acceptance criteria.

Before you pull a user story into development, it’s crucial to have a conversation to clarify and confirm the acceptance criteria.

Some people do this during their backlog refinement or planning poker sessions. Other teams have a specific three amigos meeting, specification workshop or discovery workshop.

Whatever you call this conversation, many teams find it hard; it’s unstructured, it takes too long and gets boring. The result is they don’t do it regularly or consistently, or maybe they just give up on it entirely.

Matt Wynne discovered a simple, low-tech method for making this conversation short and powerfully productive. He calls it Example Mapping.
