Cucumber - A Specification Framework [B-)]

Abstract: Cucumber is a tool designed to improve the dialog between Business Analysts and Technical Staff. It leverages the flexibility of the Ruby language to allow business and technical users to use a common lexicon to describe business value with reduced ambiguity which can lead to less confusion on both sides of the converstaion and stronger solutions with fewer defects.

In this discussion we'll go over the high level architecture of cucumber, what it is and how you may be able to utilize it in your development. We'll also go over some tips and tricks to help you get started with this new technology with the least amount of overhead and friction.

Speaker Bio: Leon Gersing has been bringing value to clients large and small for over ten years, and has a passion for technology, art and community. He has experience using technologies ranging from ASP.Net and C++, to Objective-C, Ajax, and Actionscript – and of course, Ruby and Rails. Leon also has high hopes for IronRuby and the much needed efficiency and agility that it has the potential to bring to the .Net world.

A believer in building strong communities, Leon spends time presenting on a wide variety of development topics at events and user groups in the region. He loves nothing more than to be around other developers, working together to create something unique and fresh; something that has never been done before. He believes there is no challenge that can't be overcome with passion and creativity. He spends his spare time with his wife, two beautiful girls, two sweet kitties, and his ukulele.
