Thoughts on Technology, Methodology and Programming.

More convinced about Behavior-Driven Design

Posted by Marcus Wyatt on 25 July 2006

C. Keith Ray has the following post:

I am now convinced that the word “test” in Test-Driven Development is a barrier to understanding that TDD is a design process. Next time I give a presentation on that subject, I will use “Behavior Driven Design” and “Behavior Specs” rather than “Test-Driven Development” and “Programmer Tests”. I have slides on TDD and BDD for your perusal. Compare them and see what you think. (Better, show the BDD slides to people not familiar with TDD/BDD and see what they think.)
