I just recently started hearing about BDD - behavior driven development.

The book behavior Driven Development with JavaScript sounds really interesting - I read the excerpt from Amazon as well.

Here are some resources I ran across: - good general overview - Dan North's blog - Cucumber - the Ruby support for BDD.

I would also recommend the book "Specification By Example" by Gojko Adzik. It's published by Manning and is available most places books are sold. Gojko's also set up a web site with lots of additional information at

I'm hoping that Marco's book will be another good resource.
