comment What is the difference between writing test cases for BDD and TDD?
it's not just the language....there are "specs" in code as well, a layer on top of your unit tests.

comment What is the difference between writing test cases for BDD and TDD?
there is no difference, one is a subset of another HOWEVER, there is a difference in that your acceptance criteria become living executables that drive your lower-level unit tests...so there's slightly an abstraction in the middle that you have to account for in code, the specifications (specs) that need to call your SUT code after your lower-level tests pass, the spec should pass. So the spec is what's introduced into BDD so you can't say there is no difference concretely. Sure you test drive the code using lower-level unit tests in both BUT there is also that added layer of specs on top

@Desolate yep, I hear your pain. We shouldn't have to put up with people like this in an engineering profession. It's an attitude problem by the majority of developers out there (I'm not saying all). I don't understand why there has to be a war of "I'm smarter than you"and huge lack of respect for your collegues...f that. We should all work together...learn, and move on.

Why not give the guy a chance to re-edit before you go trigger happy with close, close close.

This is a problem with stack. The whole point of th Programmers forum is that you can ask both specific and/or ask subjective questions that poll, give opinion, arguments, etc. Opinion is what drives good answers to a question like his. Everyone has had their own experience in the software industry so opinion is exactly what this guy needs. He needs a breadth of ideas, experiences, and insight here. So what if they're not specific, this is about general career advice..

I do not understand why these kinds of questions get continually closed. WTF. The dude is fresh out of college. He's a Jr. Therefore his questions ARE gonna be open ended and non-specific. He probably doesn't even know what to ask which is why the responses he probably wants are anything that can help him. He wants general insight. You don't need a specific scope to answer his question. The answers in this thread are excellent. Even if this was asked 100 times, who cares, you're gonna get new and different and entirely new answers that are even different than in other threads.

humility is rare in our profession, I agree. We need more humble developers that can say once in a while hey, I don't know how to do x, y, or z and aren't afraid to let down their guard and ask questions...even architect leats... we need devs who truly care about working together, not egoistical devs who think they are Gods and isolate themselves in their own Godlike world at work.
