Making BDD work for you
Adopting new methods and technologies is always hard. Behaviour-Driven Development promises to let you spend more time coding and less time pulling your hair out by increasing collaboration and trust between developers and the business. Though with all the tools and process BDD seems to require, its costs are often deemed to high. But BDD can work without special tools or process changes. This talk gives you a hands-on introduction to BDD - aka Specification by Example - and shows you a light-weight or even guerrilla-like approach of making it work for you, in your project, with your tools.
