Our BDD with SpecFlow training course will give you the skills to implement Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) techniques in your .NET development projects.
Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) is a tried-and tested Agile methodology aimed at improving the communication and collaboration between Software Developers, Quality Assurance / Testers, Business Analysts, and other vested stakeholders involved in bringing software products to fruition.
SpecFlow is an implementation of the popular Cucumber framework specifically for teams working with Microsoft's .NET Framework for implementing the tenets of BDD - defining, managing and executing automated Acceptance Tests based on human-readable business specifications.
Our highly interactive SpecFlow training course will bring you quickly up to speed with the benefits, syntax and BDD best practices so you can start using SpecFlow to improve your .NET development life cycle and build better products.
By the end of the course, you will have learnt how to:
Write well-formed plain-text SpecFlow Features and Scenarios
Write Step Definitions
Build a working app with 100% code coverage
Connect TDD to Features
Design better Testing strategies
Maintain the BDD cycle
Maintain large SpecFlow codebases
Use Advanced SpecFlow features
Who should attend
.NET Software developers, QA / Testers, Business Analysts, Scrum Developers, Product Owners and all other involved stakeholders who are looking to improve the product development lifecycle and project reporting in their business, through Behaviour-Driven development techniques - specifically with the aid of the Cucumber framework.
Delegates will ideally have a background in software development and / or testing using .NET technologies, or experience of gathering and analysing user requirements / use cases.
Live, instructor-led online and on-site training
We appreciate that you need flexibility to fit in with new working situations - whether you're an individual, part of a distributed team, or simply have projects and deadlines to meet.

"There was good breadth to the topics without giving too much information for an introductory course. The interactive activities were good. It was good to get suggestions specifically relating to what we do."
"I, along with three colleagues, came on the Agile course. The training was fantastic. I have limited Agile knowledge and this helped answer all the questions I had, in an impartial and helpful way. I learned more about Scrum than I have done in the past and heard of different frameworks that I didn’t know existed and much of this was down to the instructor: his approach, style and knowledge. Please pass on my thanks and I cannot recommend Framework highly enough based on this session."
"I engaged with Framework to support a department-wide transition to Agile Development Practices. The Kick-start programme provided training for the larger organisation, hands-on role and tool-specific training and follow-up coaching. The Agile adoption was and continues to be a success. Scrum is now bedded in and we are making full use of JIRA. Framework's expertise and flexibility made this a very positive experience throughout."
"Framework provided us with Agile Overview sessions and targeted training courses for Product Owners, Scrum Masters and the Development Team. Simon was excellent, the material was well-structured and the content was well received by all. Framework was also engaged to provide Agile mentoring and coaching to ensure the that the transition to Agile was as smooth as possible."
