Business continuously depends on source code quality
HonestCode provides to Product Owners a BDD/ATDD platform, used to bring customers into the test design process before coding has begun. It is a collaborative practice where users, testers, and developers define automated acceptance criteria
Product-based teams with investments made toward more flexible business goals, allows teams to plan for the long-term, working in partnership with their business stakeholders to deliver the most valuable features. As a result teams are shipping features to production faster than ever before and enjoy more collaborative relationships with their business stakeholders as a result.
Too many organisations still plan for fixed-budget projects, with a fixed, overly-ambitious scope. When both scope and budget are fixed like this, agile is impossible to deliver. The constraints of a fixed deadline and scope force teams into short-term decisions that compromise the quality of their work
Acceptance tests provide a shared understanding of what the system should do and when requirements are considered done. They are written in a way that describes intent by example, and can be created before the implementation, helping:
- Project owners clarify vague requirements.
- Developers understand and implement these.
- Everyone focus on what ‘done’ means.
Since the beginning of computer engineering has existed a big gap between which the product designers wrote as requirements and the developers needs to work and build the consistent and quality product.
For years, we have used Project Managers, Solution Architects, Team Leaders… and millions of lines of documentation trying to explain the business requirements with the most technical language as possible.
Since the advent of Agile methodologies, we have got a great improvement in terms of communication, but the documentation is still based in business requirements trying to explain to the technical teams what they are want to get.
The rise of testing techniques such as behavior-driven development is a testament to the impact of this sweeping trend, proving that companies, staff members, consumers and business partners all want a smoother and more user-friendly experience when they interact with software in the workplace and at home.

"Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se."
“Testing shows the presence, not the absence of bugs.”

“Quality means doing it right even when no one is looking.”
“It is not the beauty of a building you should look at; it’s the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time.”
