Setting up monitoring for web applications can be complicated - tests tend to lack expressiveness, and quite often don't even test the right problem in the first place.
cucumber-nagios lets you write behavioural tests for your web apps in plain English and outputs the test results in the Nagios plugin format, letting Nagios notify you when your production apps aren't behaving.
Lindsay will be covering how to get up and running with the tool, writing tests for your web apps, and why it's important to test the behaviour (and not just the availability) of your production web apps.
