Meeting Topic: BDD – Behavior Driven Development: A Common Language for the Whole Team
Meeting Learning:
This will be a joint meeting between the KC IIABA chapter and the Agile KC group.  The meeting will explore how Behavior Driven Development can help your team obtain better quality and throughput of work by creating a consistent understanding of how your software should work.

With the continual evolution of automated testing tools and Agile practices, the body of knowledge around BDD has been growing. Many teams have been successful in leveraging this advancement to reduce ambiguity and increase value delivery. The secret to their success lies in the practices associated with BDD.
