Make BDD great again


45 minutes


I would like to share my story about how our team was building an efficient testing process, how these changes affect the development process overall, how to solve common problems of BDD-style tests with DEMO on real examples. My story begins with several failures/problems, which every team meets at the beginning of involving BDD tools in automation tests.

The next topic is including several improvements such as universal step definitions, cucumber expressions, own parameter types, text localization testing, involving REGEXP to test special symbols, etc.

After, slides cover solving irritable problems of BDD tests such as: getting, remembering and reusing unique data during test run sessions, working with API to avoid repeatable steps, file verifications in headless mode, excel files content, hash, screenshot testing, etc.
