Our story

About SpecFlow

We want to empower development teams to build the “right” software. Discovering requirements and building software with confidence, together as a team, brings joy and fulfillment to software development.

Our Story

We’ve picked up Specification-By-Example and Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) from the early beginnings as a remedy to bring clarity, involvement, and alignment for all stakeholders in the process of discovering and formulating what the software to be built truly is.

Back in 2009, we decided to build a native .NET automation framework for automating Gherkin Feature Files, which we later released as SpecFlow on GitHub. Over ten years after we started with SpecFlow, Tricentis funded SpecFlow in 2019 as a startup and dedicated to our mission on an even larger scale.

Open-Source Project

SpecFlow is Open Source, free to use, actively developed, and maintained by our community and us. SpecFlow implements BDD for the .NET platform and Microsoft ecosystem. We provide tools that bring BDD into Microsoft Visual Studio,.NET, Microsoft Azure DevOps, and GIT. If that’s your tech stack – jump on board!

SpecFlow+ is now available for free

Thanks to the funding of Tricentis we are now able to run SpecFlow with more commitment to our users than ever before and are able to offer the previous paid Plus (+) components, completely for free as well.

SpecFlow Plus (+) components (Runner, LivingDoc, and SpecMap) are closed-source, actively developed, and maintained only by us.

We want as many people as possible in the Microsoft .NET world to be able to enjoy BDD. All we are asking for in return is your feedback, your passion for BDD, and your involvement in our community. Sounds like an awesome deal, doesn’t it?
