This two day conference and tutorials will explore various aspects of BDD in this New York community event. CukeUp! is organised and curated in partnership with Cucumber Limited and also runs annually in London.
CukeUp isn’t just for geeks.
Product owners, testers and business analysts are fundamental to making BDD work, and our programme will reflect that.
The talks will explore the aspects of BDD and Specification by Example that interest you the most.

What happened last year?
At the first ever CukeUp! in New York, Aslak Hellesøy introduced Cucumber Pro, we had talks on Specification by Example, acceptance testing in the form of poetry, and so much more. We also played host to the likes of Richard Lawrence, Peter Bell, and Cucumber and BDD enthusiasts. Check out last year's event here.
Aslak Hellesoy, the creator of Cucucmber, explores the similarities and functions of Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and Domain Driven Design (DDD).

Want to improve your team's processes when it comes to acceptance testing? Daniel Wellman explores the technical and social forces that cause acceptance test suite to grow, and ways in which your team can refactor and improve such tests.
Acceptance tests have become a common part of building software for an agile process. However, I've observed a trend of growing build times - with teams saying "Our build is 15 minutes... well, actually it's 45 minutes because our Cucumbers took so long, so we parallelized the cukes." One reason for this may be that teams treat their acceptance tests as "Write-Once": create for a new story, get them to pass, and leave them be. In this talk we'll explore the technical and social forces that cause an acceptance test suite to grow, and discuss some ways to refactor and improve these tests. We'll touch on hexagonal architecture, declarative vs. imperative style, and alternate Cucumber step implementations.

When creating our scenarios, we want to fully describe the desired functionality, but not over-describe it. We want our scenarios to do more than check for correct operation. We want to paint a picture of what’s intended that aids understanding by others (or even ourselves) in the future.
Which details should we leave visible, and which should we hide? We’ll look at ways to distill our scenarios down to their essence, and remove distracting incidental details.

Advanced Essence Distillation Workshop
Built in 1891, during a major period of development when manufacturers were making DUMBO into one of the city’s most important industrial neighbourhoods, the structure contributes to the district through its architecture, structure, and the fact that its owners played a significant role in the area’s history.
Set between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, DUMBO is the heart of the Tech area in NY, dubbed 'Silicon Alley'. The immediate area hosts a range of hip bars and cafes.
The space is a 5 minute walk from the York Street F and High Street A/C.
