Intro to BDD (Security Testing rescheduled)
May 11, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm CDT
BDD is a hot topic; many companies are experimenting with it because they have heard that it can deliver dramatic benefits. Companies that do it well are reporting:
– Projects taking 30% to 40% less time, and being delivered without bugs
– QA teams routinely delivering automated tests to the Developers in-sprint – while the Developers are still writing the code
– 90% reduction in the effort to maintain and update the automated tests
About the Speaker:
Leslie Brooks has decades of experience in QA, software development processes, and test automation, and more than six years of experience with BDD. He is very passionate about QA and constantly looking for better ways to improve Development and QA, and loves to teach those better ways.
In his constant drive to test better, faster, and cheaper, Leslie was an early adopter of Specification by Example/BDD, and has used it to transform three different organizations.
He was trained directly by the world-renowned experts from Cucumber Ltd., and has in turn trained more than 300 Business Analysts, Developers, and Testers in the correct use of BDD/SBE, including using it to deliver automated tests while the developers are still writing the code.
Leslie currently works for a top 3 US Defense Contractor where he is applying SBE to data science applications. He has a Bachelor’s in Math/Computer Science, MBA and holds a couple of patents for in-circuit hardware testing.
