BDD is like Jazz. There is no authoritative definition of what it is. It has emerged from independent practices and it is constantly evolving. Different practitioners interpret it very differently.

Since BDD is such a moving target, most newcomers struggle to understand what BDD is. Chris Matts suggested at last year’s CukeUp that the best we can do to define BDD is to cut a vinyl.

Kind of Green is my vinyl. It’s what BDD is like with my band, in 2016.
