Specification by Example and Gherkin

2017 · Writing Great Specifications is an example-rich tutorial that teaches you how to write good Gherkin specification documents that take advantage of the benefits of specification by example. Published by Manning.

The book teaches you how to capture executable software designs in Gherkin following the SBE method. Written for both developers and non-technical team members, this practical book starts with collecting individual feature stories and organizing them into a full, testable spec. You'll learn to choose the best scenarios, write them in a way that anyone can understand, and ensure they can be easily updated by anyone in management.

You’d make a prediction on any sports event, and we’d let you know if you got it right, offering the chance to chat about it with your friends and our community.
