ChicagoRuby: Downtown - Sub-second full-stack acceptance tests

Jun 5, 2018 · Chicago, United States of America

ChicagoRuby and 8th Light are excited to welcome Aslak Hellesøy (@aslak_hellesoy), the creator of Cucumber.


The brittleness and slowness of full-stack acceptance tests has led to the popularization of the Testing Pyramid. Let’s see how we can make them run consistently in milliseconds, at low maintenance cost. What does this mean for your productivity and flow? Is the Testing Pyramid a good recommendation under those conditions? Come and see for yourself.


6:00 to 6:15 - Food & Mingling
6:15 to 7:45 - Presentation
after - Post meetup mingling @ Elephant & Castle


Aslak is the creator of Cucumber. He co-wrote The Cucumber Book, Behaviour-Driven Development for Developers and Testers with Matt Wynne. During his career Aslak has worked with both small and large organisations in several industries such as telecom, trading, banking, retail, insurance, car manufacturing, education and government. Aslak is a co-founder of Cucumber Ltd, the company behind Cucumber.
