EasyB/JDave talk available as a podcast

Posted by johnsmart on September 16, 2009 at 11:43 AM PDT

Last week I had the pleasure of being invited to talk at the Canberra Java Users Group about BDD using Easyb and JDave, using the talk that Lasse Koskela and I gave at Agile2009:

Behaviour-Driven Development, or BDD, is an excellent development strategy that can help bridge the traditional gap between requirements and implementation. This talk will go discuss the basic principles of Behaviour Driven Development, and look at how it builds on and differs from “traditional” Test-Driven Development. This session will demo two BDD tools: JDave, an open source framework that incorporates BDD concepts into JUnit, and easyb, a DSL-based behavior driven development framework for Java that uses Groovy to let you pretty much write tests that document themselves.

If you are interested in hearing the talk and/or downloading the slides, you can download both here.

"Probably the best training course I've been on."..."Not just how to write Java code but the 'business end' - how to build, test, deploy, manage and monitor"..."One of the best and most useful courses I have attended. And they didn't even try to sell me anything!" There are still some places for the courses in Sydney and Wellington  - Get up to speed with the latest and coolest in Java tools and best practices! Sign up on the 2009 season of the Java Power Tools Bootcamps.
