Topic: Leveraging BDD and Given/When/Then for Better Acceptance Criteria

BDD is the art of using examples in conversation to illustrate behaviour. -  Liz Keogh

Behavior Driven Development is an approach to developing software that focuses on the behaviors of the users and system responses. Gherkin is a language used by Cucumber, which is a tool used to automate testing.

Regardless of your test automation strategy, writing Acceptance Criteria using the Given/When/Then pattern of gherkin can help you identify usage scenarios and expected system behavior. Validating your G/W/T scenarios with matrix and applying concepts from Specification by Example gives you powerful tools to use when working with stakeholders on their needs, priorities, coverage and gaps.

Terry will show us how to write Acceptance Criteria using G/W/T and a simple way to use Excel create matrices to help ensure scenario coverage and enable more productive conversations with stakeholders about priorities and dependencies starting tomorrow!
