TDD and BDD as efficient practices of software development

September 14, 2017 White Papers

It is quite a common thing in the software development industry to generate “new ideas” to make software development projects more successful. There are many approaches, so far. Among them Agile, Scrum, Kanban, Behavior Driven Development, Extreme Programming, Test Driven development, Lean Development. What is the reason for the variety? Why are qualified and experienced people always ready to implement changes? One of the reasons is that software development is a very complex task, where faults often occur.

Sometimes those faults are not obvious until the product testing is held. However, expecting for testing results can be quite disturbing. What is more, those results can be not so encouraging. Thus, the development team should start the long, and tricky bugs’ fixing process. The testing results may also prove that the product works correctly but shows that not all the features are implemented. These and multiple similar cases explain why project managers continually seek for development process optimization.

Trying to optimize the process, project managers implement the “new ideas” mentioned. If done properly, software development teams benefit from them.

In this article, we would like to tell about those two that shift the focus to the testing: Test Driven development and Behavior Driven Development. Let’s compare them with the traditional approach.
