November meeting announcement – Get in shape for ATDD with GherkinSaladPosted: October 21, 2012
Given a team got a jumpstart with ATDD
And they got a few features automated
When a few cycles go by and reality starts settling in
Then they face issues scaling the process with (in)consistency in gherkin, detail level, data management etc.
And technical issues with finding elements on page, reporting, reusable code etc.
Did you wonder about this scenario or had it in play on your current or previous team? Then come checkout the GherkinSalad framework. It is an approach to help answer some of these questions. It provides a set of ideas around writing and maintaining gherkins which can be applied, leveraged or adapted to projects with different challenges. It also provides a framework for automation that supports and enables these ideas.
Speaker: Ayan Dave is fond of automation, testing and likes to explore different tools and techniques to do these. For 8 hours a day he works with Quick Solutions as Senior Consultant and writes code for its clients. For other 8 hours he writes code for the GherkinSalad framework and keeps asking his 3 year old daughter if she would like to help (she said no). For the remaining 8 hours he dreams of writing code 🙂
