Topic: An Intro to Cucumber

The format is simple: bring your laptops. We will build a cucumber framework from scratch. Here we will walk folks through the process from the ground up; creating a project, directories, gherkin scripts, and create some step definitions. Time permitting maybe even launch a browser and hit a web page.

Don't forget to bring your laptop as this is meant to be an interactive and hands on experience for the evening where YOU build the framework.

Matthew Eakin will be leading us through the evening. With over 20 years of technical, leadership and planning experience, Mr. Eakin brings a unique, thorough and comprehensive perspective to every project. His extensive expertise around all aspects of the SDLC combined with development skills has helped him to be an effective Agile practitioner and coach. Mr. Eakin talks extensively on Gherkin Scripting and is in high-demand as a BDD (Behavior-Driven Development)/ATDD (Acceptance Test Driven Development) coach. The two workshops he has created for Sogeti (Agile Testing and A Manual Testers Guide to the Ruby/Cucumber Framework) have been so successful that Mr. Eakin now leads the series nationally and teaches customized variations of the program at client sites.
