Program Overview

Behavior Driven Development (BDD) is an agile software development methodology that focuses on the collaboration between developers, testers, and business stakeholders to create a shared understanding of what needs to be built and how it will be tested. 

Cucumber is a popular BDD testing framework that supports several programming languages, including Java, Ruby, and JavaScript. Cucumber enables the creation of executable specifications written in a natural language format that can be understood by all stakeholders involved in the development process. 

Uptut's professional training programs are designed to equip corporate professionals with the knowledge and skills required to improve the quality of their software and reduce the time and effort required for testing. Our training programs are customized to the specific needs of each organization, and our trainers are highly experienced in their respective domains.

Our training program emphasizes practical hands-on training, where participants will learn to write feature files, step definitions, and implement BDD using Cucumber for real-world scenarios.
