With a team of collaborators who are some of the world’s greatest experts at BDD, you’d like to think that Cucumber’s codebase would be a shining example of what happens why you get everything right. If only!

Thousands of companies around the world rely on Cucumber to tell them whether their software works or not. Yet for years the codebase for Cucumber carried the same scars as your codebase probably does: a top-heavy test suite that was brittle and took too long to run and a domain model that lagged behind our current understanding of the problem.

That was then, and this is now. Learn how Cucumber 2.0 has solved a lot of these problems. Learn what we’ve learned from the project: about releasing into the market early, about slow software, and about how having a good domain model fixes everything.
