Testing Embedded Systems With Cucumber

17th September 2013 in New York City at DUMBO Spot

There are 9 other SkillsCasts available from CukeUp! NYC

This session was not filmed.

Cucumber isn't just for web apps. You can test just about anything with it—including embedded systems! In this talk, we'll look at several different facets of driving hardware from Cucumber.

Join Ian Dees in this session, as we cover the following topics.

  • Connecting to an Arduino using a custom serial protocol
  • Taking advantage of the TCP stack when it's available
  • Building the Cucumber wire protocol into your device
  • What to do when you can't modify the app under test
  • Driving more fully-featured devices such as the BeagleBone or RaspberryPi

By the end of the presentation, you'll have a handle on what the various options are for testing embedded devices, and which tradeoffs will apply to your system
