Course FAQ
Course FAQ
What is SpecFlow?

SpecFlow is an open-source tool for bridging the communication gap between domain experts and developers - allowing non-technical people to write acceptance tests for the system that we're developing.

What is an Acceptance Test?

An acceptance test enables us to validate that we're building the right system and that the system contains the right features that are required by the users, the business, or the product owner.

What will I learn in this course?

You will get an overview of the SpecFlow tool itself. We'll discuss acceptance tests in general and some of their characteristics, then see how SpecFlow can be used in test-first approaches. Finally, we'll create a new project in Visual Studio and add our first feature file to it.
