Abstract:
You'd think, as an owner of Cucumber Ltd, I would be shouting from the hilltops about how Behaviour Driven Development can save your development process, right?
Actually no.
There are no silver bullets, and BDD is no exception - it is at its best when used as part of a broad set of practices within a particular culture.
Using anonymized examples from the real world, we will look at ten anti-patterns where BDD on it's own almost certainly won't save the day.
We will also take a look at some of the surprising ways BDD - and in particular Example mapping - CAN help, especially from a social and cognitive perspective.

Learning Outcomes:
  • - You will understand the symbiotic relationship BDD has with other development practices
  • - You will begin to identify when using BDD might not be the first thing to look at
  • - You will be able to list some common impediments to using BDD
  • - You will begin to see some of the reasons BDD - and in particular Example Mapping - might help with cognitive load and collaboration
