About the Talk
November 14, 2009 9:15 AM
Testing and planning development just got a lot easier with the Cucumber testing framework. Here's the outline of my talk, written using Cucumber:
Feature: Intro to Cucumber
As a Cucumber user
I want to introduce Cucumber to others at CVCC
So that I can show them how easy it is to write plain-text stories to drive development and test their apps using a real web browser.
Scenario: Explaining the basics of Cucumber
Given you make web applications
And you come to my talk
Then I will show you how Cucumber works
And I will explain its basic concepts
Then I will write a story to test a web site
And I will then write custom matchers to run the story
When I run the story
Then I should see my browser open
And the browser will navigate to the site
And it will fill in the forms
And it will click the buttons
When I am finished
Then you will be able to go home and do this yourself.
