Program Overview

Behavior Driven Development (BDD) is a software development approach that aims to improve communication and collaboration between different stakeholders involved in a project. BDD is based on describing the system's expected behavior in natural language and then automating these descriptions to create executable specifications that can be used for testing.

Specflow is a BDD tool for .NET developers that allows the creation of human-readable tests in natural language. Specflow enables developers to write automated tests that can be easily understood by non-technical stakeholders, such as business analysts and product owners. With BDD and Specflow, your team can create automated tests that are easy to read and understand.
