Do you want to learn more about the role of BDD in software development? Is BDD right for you?

Today’s world is driven by a digital transformation that no one can escape from. Therefore, the software development industry is faced with an increasing pressure to perform better and faster. Businesses have to operate at a faster pace and, consequently, software development has to keep up with this business demands.

So, what does this mean for software development teams?

The traditional approach used by many in the software development process is outdated. Given that teams are expected to perform better and faster, the good old practice of building software, and testing it once it’s completed, won’t make the cut.

In order to guarantee software quality at this accelerated development rhythm, the traditional software development process has shifted towards more agile methodologies. One of these is Behavior-Driven Development (BDD).

Even though this is not a new concept in the software development industry, many companies still don’t fully understand the benefits that this framework presents to the development process. In contrast to traditional methodologies that exclude team members in silos, BDD serves as a collaborative force that fosters agile development.

In this paper, we will give you an overview of what BDD is, why it is paramount for agile development and how no-code automation tools complement this methodology.
