How BDD enables True CI/CD
Behavior Driven Development is one of the most commonly misunderstood techniques in DevOps, but it is also one of the key enablers of both an Agile culture and true continuous deployment. This talk will attempt to fill in the missing pieces on exactly what BDD is and how your teams can use it to increase communication, drive quality, and reduce waste. We will also connect the dots on why you need a test-first strategy to enable trunk-based development, continuous integration, and continuous deployment. If your business still struggles with monthly or quarterly big-batch releases, this talk will show you what your teams must do to evolve to the next stage of continuous delivery.
