CukeUp! 2014 is a fast-paced conference co-organised by Skills Matter and Cucumber Limited - the company behind Cucumber. Together, we've been assembling the community since 2011 for this intense conference - this year we've added a day of workshops to allow you explore topics in their entirety.

Format - A Day of Talks - A Day of Workshops

After four editions of CukeUp! as a one-day conference (3 in London, 1 in New York) we expanded the conference to two days; so more time for coding and meeting others using Cucumber in the workplace. For those amongst that didn't attend, the first day mirrored previous editions - day 2 was split into 3-hour tutorial sessions that aimed to go into specific BDD techniques like Real Options, Impact Mapping and different tools

CukeUp isn’t just for geeks.

Product owners, testers and business analysts are fundamental to making BDD work, and our programme reflected that.

That’s why we' added a full day of hands-on workshops. The workshops allowed more time to explore aspects of BDD and Specification by Example that interest you the most.

CukeUp isn't just for Londoners

CukeUp now runs in Brooklyn, New York. We return to the DUMBO Loft on September 30th for a day of talks exploring the latest innovations and developments in BDD and Cucumber. More information
