Oh, Behave: BDD Implementation with Cucumber

Session scheduled at 2:30-3:20 in Room 3 (Ski-U-Mah)

A lot of developers don’t like using Cucumber, a testing tool available for Ruby, JavaScript, Java, Python, Go, .NET, and more. Often, this is because they don’t quite grok what Cucumber is and how it can help them. This talk introduces strategies to use Cucumber and behavior-driven development (BDD) to make developing easier and more fun.

I want attendees to come away with an understanding of exactly how behavior-driven development in general, and the Cucumber tool, in particular, can help them make more of their work be work they love doing. They will learn about BDD, integration vs. unit testing, and get specific suggestions about how to use Cucumber to drive these workflows.
