A year ago, native BDD solutions similar to Cucumber were almost inexistant. Yet the need for it was manifest. It didn't take me long before I proposed and started hacking on the port of our favourite cucurbitaceae.
This is an introduction to the young Cucumber.js. After briefly exposing the history and goals of the project, I'll demonstrate how to write features, step definitions, hooks, support code, how to invoke it from both Node.js and browser environments.

Getting started with Cucumber-JVM
Featuring Aslak Hellesøy
At last year's CukeUp, Aslak announced that work had started on Cucumber-JVM - a pure Java implementation of Cucumber that runs on half a dozen JVM languages. A year later, Cucumber-JVM 1.0.0 is released and ready to take the JVM by storm. This presentation shows you how to install...cucumber jvm cucumber-jvm java junit
Testing for Value
Featuring Colin Humphreys
How do we test that our behaviours are actually delivering? How do we know that our new features actually increased toaster sales? Our test suite can be greener than the greenest cuke, yet we could still be failing as an organisation. Colin Humphreys explores bringing the rigour of...bdd
User Centred Scenarios: Describing capabilities, not solutions
Featuring Antony Marcano and James Martin
Many teams don't realise that their Cukes are actually describing the solution they're building rather than the user-capability they're enabling. The closer to the solution our Cukes are, the less flexibility we have and the less maintainable ...cucumber testing
Just enough infrastructure for product development with cucumber
Featuring Michael Nacos
User-centric product features often span multiple subsystems of a service stack. For example, user state changed in a web app may affect routing of their emails, which is handled by a daemon.
Cucumber helps us concentrate on the user and decouple product features from their implementation. At the...cucumber bdd
Living Documentation - Buy 1 get 2 free
Featuring Chris Roff
Many teams lose out on big benefits of Cucumber by focusing too much on the short-term benefits.
Join Chris Roff to learn how a small investment in long term benefits can help you get more out of your cukes even in the short term.cucumber
BDD: When Outcomes don't Come Out
Featuring Liz Keogh
BDD is largely a goal-driven approach: we start from a context and explore whether some particular event will lead to the outcome we want.
So how does it work when the outcomes are unclear, or you're just trying to find out what's possible? When finding examples changes the examples, is...bdd agile testing
Speeding up tests with parallel execution using SpecRun
Featuring Gaspar Nagy
BDD tests usually exercise the application with external dependencies. The benefits of end-to-end testing are well known, but these tests tend to have a long execution time. SpecRun aims to speed up the execution of the (SpecFlow) functional tests by parallelizing them. This session summarizes...specrun specflow bdd
Calabash, an open-source automated testing technology for iOS and Android

Staying close to experts with executable specifications
Featuring Vagif Abilov and Peder Søholt
