Join Richard McIntyre for an interesting talk on a new approach to BDD.
At BBC Sport we have invested heavily in to the BDD process. Dev's are trained in it, the business promotes it, time is given to us to be able to focus on it. Even so we have made many mistakes. Our Cucumber builds can take hours, tests get forgotten, are hard to maintain and break often.
Well documented feature files and visibility of implementation along with test coverage is still essential in the agile process. We solved this by creating our own BDD tool and framework called "Should It?".
This completely new approach is not bound by any particular technology or programming language. You choose what you language you write your tests in.
