Do you want to learn more about the role of BDD in software development? Is BDD right for you?
When we talk about agile, most testers like the idea of it and what it brings to the work space - that is, working efficiently and being responsive to customers and users. However, automating tests at this development speed is a strenuous endeavor.
Regression testing is the process of checking a software system for bugs or regressions that have occurred in existing code after introducing new code.
Although regression testing is an essential part of the testing process, some software development teams choose to only run tests on specific code changes, under the assumption that if the new part of the software works, then the rest of it will as well.
Regression testing is a core part of quality assurance and software testing. This type of testing is key to ensuring a great end-user experience. Yet, some testers rush the process or skip it entirely because it is time-consuming.
Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) was carefully developed to support agile development in the software industry. This is because agile cannot be fully deployed if the testing process still follows a traditional methodology.
Behavior Driven Development (BDD) is no new concept in the software development industry. Still, many companies don’t fully understand the benefits of this framework in the development process. In a world where traditional development methodologies have excluded team members in silos, BDD serves as a collaborative force that fosters agile development.
In order to improve testing processes and transform them into an efficient and cost-effective part of software development, companies are introducing concepts such as agile, DevOps, or BDD in their teams. The rising adoption of these frameworks is slowly shrinking the gap between IT and business, allowing for more collaboration and continuous delivery. In order to facilitate this collaboration, automation has been brought into play.
The introduction of agile methodologies has allowed software developers to ensure quality while decreasing production times and streamlining the development process. Within this methodology, testing has taken center stage to align development with customer needs.
