TDD and BDD Strategies to Improve Software Quality

According to a study by Stack Overflow, developers spend approximately 50% of their time debugging and fixing issues in their code. As a software engineer, I understand the problem first-hand. We pour our heart and soul into building applications, yet bugs persist despite our best efforts. While some are caught during compilation, others lurk undetected, potentially causing damage and financial woes. That’s why rigorous testing of applications becomes crucial before market launch.

How Does #Cucumber Help in #SoftwareTesting Life Cycle? | Maheshwaran VK | #AutomationTesting

In this video, Maheshwaran VK demystifies the Cucumber Framework, exploring its necessity, applications, and benefits in the software testing life cycle. Maheshwaran sheds light on the key aspects of Cucumber, addressing questions about its relevance, essentiality, and role in the testing process.

Behaviour Driven Development in Ruby with RSpec

RSpec is a library for writing and running tests in Ruby applications. As its landing page states, RSpec is: "Behaviour Driven Development for Ruby. Making TDD productive and fun". We will return to that last part later. This post, the first of a two-part series, will focus on introducing RSpec and exploring how RSpec especially helps with Behaviour Driven Development in Ruby. Let's dive in!

BDD is Not Only Gherkin or Cucumber

BDD (Behavior Driven Development) strives to communicate clearly whenever any stakeholder's understanding of the desired system changes and attempts to have stakeholders in diverse positions interacting smoothly in parallel to maintain a near-constant grasp of the intended system behavior. If that understanding has been misaligned, it should be updated, or it should be synthesized with a new understanding of the intended system. This ensures that all stakeholders are pulling in the same direction.

A Complete Guide to BDD Testing in Financial Services

In the fast-paced and highly regulated world of financial services, software quality is arguably of utmost importance. To ensure financial products meet complex requirements and deliver seamless user experiences, robust testing methods are crucial. One such approach that has gained significant traction in the financial industry is Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) testing.

What is BDD Testing? A Complete Guide

BDD testing is an Agile approach to software testing where testers write test cases in simple language that even people without technical expertise can understand. The goal of BDD testing is to increase collaboration between the technical side and the business side. The Gherkin language is a unique business-readable language used to describe system behaviors and scenarios. It is structured by 3 primary statements: Given - When - Then, with each statement describing a specific aspect of the system.

TDD vs BDD: Full Comparison

TDD (Test Driven Development) and BDD (Behavior Driven Development) are fairly similar development approaches that both emphasize testing and collaboration, yet have major differences in focus and methodology. Simply put, in TDD, developers test first, then use the test results to guide their development, while in BDD, developers express the system behavior they want to create through Gherkin syntax, then code according to those Gherkin expressions.

Understanding Behavior Driven Development: A Comprehensive Guide

As software development projects become more complex, the need for effective testing tools and methodologies becomes increasingly important. One such methodology that has gained popularity in recent years is behavior-driven development (BDD). Behaviour Driven Development, orBDD, is a software development methodology that emphasizes collaboration and communication between developers, testers, and business stakeholders.

BDD vs TDD vs ATDD: Key Differences

The software development process involves the use of a myriad of tools, languages, and frameworks. Typically, software developers don’t encounter difficulty while writing the code. But what seems challenging to them is how to address various test cases, determine the code to write, and predict the user’s requirements. These difficulties can be alleviated by writing easy-to-understand tests that provide a developer with a set of precise criteria to fulfil.
