BDD Course, Berlin, 22-24 October 2014
I'll be joining BDD Kickstart and Cucumber Pro's Aslak Hellesøy in Berlin in October.
Tickets available here!
As well as Aslak's amazing Cucumber expertise, you'll also have an opportunity to learn about Cynefin and Capability Red. Find out how to short-cut BDD for familiar requirements, and how to handle areas of high uncertainty... then learn how to automate scenarios to ensure that your quality starts high and stays high, and that your software really does matter!
