Session Speaker(s): 
Saturday, November 8 2014
Time: 10:00am - 11:00am

Over the past year, Mashery took on Behavior Driven Development (BDD) style functional testing with Behat for PHP.  BDD style functional tests have been gaining popularity due to their descriptive nature and coverage of real use cases. Writing reusable scenarios for use cases is quite a tricky thing.  Steps need to be robust, to execute quickly, to speak to the use case and to handle errors cleanly.  Achieving these goals is challenging.  This talk will cover the philosophy this testing style and how to implement BDD style functional tests with Behat. This presentation/talk was previously given for the SF PHP Meetup Group,
