Matt and George will team up to provide an overview of the effective use of Cucumber. In addition to describing how to write Cucumber stories and step definitions to drive them, they will also discuss how to get the most out of it with customers, project managers and QA. This is take 2 of the talk that had to be postponed in March due to a last minute business trip.

    I definitely learned some new things about Cucumber. The mix of both intro and advanced Cucumber material was great. It seemed as though others with both less and more Cucumber experience than I had, also benefitted.

    I've heard a lot about Cucumber in the past months, but never enough to realize that it might be helpful to my Rails' apps development. George and Matt did a great job in helping me to realize why I've got to add to my tool-kit.

    Great presentation last night and thanks for the slides. I posted a brief synopsis of the content presented at http://www.tonyamoyal.com/2010/04/14/bmore-on-rails-synopsis-april-2010/ Mainly for my own reference, but others may find it useful

    I think the talk needs to be split into two talks. One for people who are learning cucumber and have that track focus on how to write good scenarios and stick to the basics of cucumber. The more advanced talk would go through what we saw last night with the more advanced features of cucumber, before/after blocks, Transforms etc.

    George and Matt did a great job covering a lot of material. The audience was clearly engaged which led to a long Q&A session at the end. They even handled the hecklers with grace.

    I thought it was well presented and catered to a broad set of skills. I came out with more than I went in with.

    It was good to hear how others are using cucumber and how once you get going you tend to reuse step definitions - also did not know about pickle so will be checking that out.

    On the heals of a kickass RubyNation, our presentation is now RFC 3092-compliant. Can't wait. Just wish RubyNation had been a week earlier so we would have time to incorporate more of Jeff Casimir's excellent talk.

    Sure I'd be happy to give a lightening talk on Corey Haines' Code Retreats. I'd also like take a couple of minutes sharing Running Tested Features with folks.

    As for lightning talks, we've got Nick Evans slated to cover arel. I would be interested in doing one on Scott Chacon's showoff presentation software: http://github.com/schacon/showoff

    Anyone else want to give one?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
