Ways BDD can help shorten feedback loops and cycle time

How CD amplifies the benefits of BDD, and vice versa

Ways your team can take advantage of BDD and CD, one small step at a time


Behavior-Driven Development and Continuous Delivery

Better Together

Explore ways that behavior-driven development (BDD) and continuous delivery/deployment (CD) support each other

Note: I could do this as a 60 minute talk with some small individual or pair exercises

Continuous delivery (CD) is all about delivering small changes to customers frequently and without strain or stress for the team. A big part of this involves enabling shared understanding across the team of the capabilities to build, carving features into thin end-to-end slices (remember – small changes!), getting quick feedback, and using that feedback wisely to build confidence. 

Behavior-driven development (BDD) is a tried-and-true way to build shared understanding of features and stories among team members from different disciplines. It helps teams avoid re-work and shorten cycle time.

In this talk, Lisa will explore ways that BDD enables successful CD, and CD enhances the benefits of BDD. Practicing both can deliver valuable changes to customers faster, while reducing the risk of production failures.
