Building the "right" regression suite using Behavior Driven Testing (BDT)

As a last minute surprise, I have been requested to talk about Building the "right" regression suite using Behavior Driven Testing (BDT) in the World Conference on Next Generation Testing on 11/12 July 2013 in Bangalore. This is another of those topics I feel very strongly about and am very excited at this opportunity.

What this does mean though is that I have back-2-back 2 1-hour sessions at WCNGT2013 - first - Integrated Testing in Enterprises using TaaS, and immediately post lunch - the BDT talk. 

Should be fun ... and hopefully I don't mix up the content in the talks :)

Here is the high-level agenda of the topic: Building the "right" regression suite using Behavior Driven Testing (BDT):


  • Overview of Agile Testing
  • The Test Pyramid
  • Different flavors of TDD
  • BDD – Behavior Driven Development?
  • ATDD – Acceptance Driven Development?
  • BDT – Behavior Driven Testing?
  • Difference between BDD and BDT
  • Tools that support BDT
  • The value proposition for the team - live documentation, business rules, onboarding, etc.
