This presentation is about Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and its part in Software Development process. A glimpse at Software development evolution will help give some insights to the motivations and reasons behind the BDD creation and why it is widely used today. Some of the questions approached will be: What were the impacts on software companies and software developers? What are the real gains and costs? What BDD brought and enabled? A high level example will help understand a possible scenario for a software development process with BDD on its core.
