BDD Podcasts and Videos

10-08-2014 by Sebastian Schürmann

I had to do some research for my workshop on BDD workshop and ended up with a big number of videos and podcasts. I thought I’d share that with you here.

What is BDD? Let Wikipedia answer this for you:

In software engineering, behavior-driven development (abbreviated BDD) is a software development process based on test-driven development (TDD).Behavior-driven development combines the general techniques and principles of TDD with ideas from domain-driven design and object-oriented analysis and design to provide software development and management teams with shared tools and a shared process to collaborate on software development.

Herding code podcast gives a good start on BDD and a intro on the processes.

TDD, BDD, And All of the other DDs should help you distinct the specific test techniques.
