How Behavior-Driven Development can Fuel your Software Testing Program
The software development industry is flooded today with ‘New ideas’ that are supposed to help make things better such as agile, scrum, test-driven development and RAD.

Software development and testing gain the immediate ability to identify and focus on what code and tests must be built first and are most important.
