Pragmatic BDD with ShouldIT?

University of Sheffield Enterprise, 210 Portobello, S1 4AE
6.30 to 8.00pm

What on earth is ShouldIT?

Have you found that as a Ruby developer that you have picked up RSpec or Test Unit with relative ease, yet find the Cucumber too abstract, bulky or even unnecessary? ShouldIT? acts as a bridge between your spec based tests and feature files that can be written clearly and simply using Markdown. Richard will show you how pain free and simple this process can be, making collaboration around software development clearer and more visible for everyone.
