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!

Another client approached me today about BDD and using tools like Cucumber to automate scenarios. There are a few things I’d love to teams see develop as a focus before heading down the tools path. You may already be doing … Continue reading
Out at Agile Eastern Europe in Kiev last month, I was privileged to see Bjarte Bogsnes and his talk on “Beyond Budgeting”. One of the elements that struck me most profoundly was when he separated the concerns inherent in budgeting. … Continue reading
As a follow-up to my post on estimating complexity, I wanted to share one of the interesting things I’ve been doing with the ideas and the numbers. This is quite long, but it’s turned out to be faintly revolutionary, and … Continue reading
