Quality code with Cucumber

On May 10th, 16:00 PM at Main

By Aslak Hellesøy

Cucumber (http://cukes.info/) is a novel tool for Behaviour Driven Development. While early BDD tools like RSpec and Shoulda are geared towards programmers, classes and objects, Cucumber nicely fills the communication gap between customers, programmers and testers. This session will change how you approach requirements and testing of Ruby applications.

In this session I will walk you through the development of a real application using Cucumber and BDD. You will learn how to install and run Cucumber and how to use it with other tools. I will also show you some common antipatterns and mistakes and how to write great features that talk to the whole team.

The presentation will be in the form of a small, fast paced project, alternating between customer-team conversations and real-time programming with Cucumber and Ruby.

I actually meant the Catalan translation of the Cucumber grammar: http://wiki.github.com/aslakhellesoy/cucumber/spoken-languages

Great talk. A bit long and would probably benefit from becoming a 2-hour workshop, but still one of the best talks nonetheless.

Good, very professional talk. When one of the three BDD guys talks about it, it always makes a lot of sense!
