Unit Testing, Test Driven Development and Behaviour Driven Development

The Isle of Man section of the BCS is holding a talk next Tuesday on Unit Testing, BDD and TDD which should be interesting for anyone involved in software design. Here’s the blurb from the BCS website:

An introduction to a number of development practices, particularly discussing Unit Testing, Test Driven Development (TDD) and Behaviour Driven Development (BDD). The talk will focus on discovering what a unit test is, the how and why? We’ll then explore TDD and uncover the tools, benefits, steps involved and “move the mindset” into design. We’ll then introduce BDD and look at the differences, talking about how you can get started right away.

The talk will be given by Fuzzelogic Solutions and will be held at the Claremont on the 13th of January. It’s nice to be able to have events like this here in the Isle of Man and a huge round ot thanks goes to my mate Zak for putting himself forward for it. This talk will be a bit technical, so if you don’t know a class from a box cutter you might want to read up on software development and design before coming to this one.


  1. This is fantastic! I never would have imagined topics like this being discussed in an event over here, I have come from using TDD and now use a BDD approach to design, I look forward to attending this 🙂

  2. Excellent Mike .. Please tell all your friends, colleagues and relatives who might be interested. Let’s pack the room 😉
