Acceptance Testing and BDD are essential components of a healthy software development process; unfortunately on Mobile this typically results in the creation of slow, brittle and highly complex UI automation based tests. These can leave development teams and businesses left wondering, are BDD tools worth the pain? By revisiting fundamentals this talk explores the role it should play in driving collaboration between business and software and how it can be best applied in Mobile.
In this talk you discover an alternative approach to UI based testing. Through using a BDD tool like Fitnesse (a lightweight, open-source testing framework) we walk through an example of how to implement Acceptance Tests on iOS that are blazing fast, rock-solid and actually improve the architecture of your app's software. Increase you and your teams productivity and discover the secret to answering the question "Can we submit yet?" in seconds instead not days.
