Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) has become a well-established approach to testing, providing ‘living documentation’ of the system under test, and being able to use the documentation to drive the test automation. Our BDD courses teach you what BDD is all about, how to write your Gherkin Feature files, and then how to bind the test automation code to the features.

Our Cucumber JavaScript training course is the perfect introduction to Behaviour-Driven Development. This training course covers writing Feature Files in Gherkin, then generating Step Definitions and then writing the code bindings using Selenium WebDriver JavaScript. Our Cucumber JavaScript training course uses Cucumber-JS, and Selenium WebDriver JavaScript all in Microsoft’s Visual Code.

The prerequisite is that you will have experience with some WebDriver or attended our Selenium WebDriver JavaScript training course.
