BDD and Acceptance Testing with Cucumber

Cucumber is a behavior driven development (BDD) tool that allows for acceptance tests to be written in plain English (or any of the other 40+ spoken languages it supports, including Pirate!). While unit testing focuses on “building the thing right,” Cucumber emphasizes “building the right thing.” Cucumber is designed to bridge the gap between the “business” and the development team, allowing all involved to speak a common language when building and testing software…and have that common language execute your acceptance tests. This presentation will cover items of interest to both technical and non-technical audiences, but will focus more on the technical aspects of Cucumber (after all, this is “Code Camp”). Topics discussed will include: Gherkin (Cucumber’s business-readable DSL), writing “features,” testing source-agnostic web applications, the Page Object pattern, automated testing via a continuous integration server, and useful resources when creating your own Cucumber tests.
