What is BDD and why should I care?

What is BDD and why should I care?  Matt Wynne, Matt Wynne Associates

At the beginning of Matt’s BDD Kickstart classes he gives a pitch to give everyone an overview of BDD and why he think it matters.

In this he covers:

  • How BDD improves communication between developers and stakeholders
  • Why examples are so important in BDD
  • How BDD builds upon Test-Driven Development (TDD)
  • Why business stakeholders need to care about refactoring
