Behavior-Driven Development Using Ruby

Course Summary

The Behavior-Driven Development Using Ruby training course teaches developers to utilize Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) techniques using Ruby. BDD is an approach in Agile software development that simplifies the testing of software. BDD originated out of Test-Driven Development (TDD), where developers build a test first, fail the test on purpose, then code a feature to finally pass the test.

The course starts with an exploration of the background of BDD as well as the various common tools used in BDD, like RSpec, Cucumber, Webrat, Selenium. The course then transitions to performing BDD using RSpec and Cucumber in the context of a Ruby on Rails application. Finally, it goes into a deep dive on both RSpec and Cucumber. The course would be useful for developers and developer teams using Ruby who need to ensure that their software is robustly tested.
