The recording for the JetBrains Webinar is now online.
I’m going to be busy over the next month. In addition to my usually client work I will be speaking at a couple of conferences. If you are in the area please stop by and say hello. Here’s the list:
I’ll be giving an online Webinar for JetBrains on September 10th. You can read about it here. In this Webinar I will be developing some test automation scripts using Cucumber and I’ll be taking your questions.
I’ll be speaking at the CukeUp conference in New York City on September 17th. Here is a discount code you can use when registering:

Here’s the description of my talk:
Cucumber gives us Scenarios and Step Definitions and leaves the rest up to us. Over time we have discovered that placing all of our code in Step Definitions tends to lead to brittle tests – especially in very large projects. Join Cheezy as he shows us a few of the tricks he has learned over the years to keep our specification code simple, well factored, and flexible enough to adapt to an ever changing project.
There are a lot of great speakers presenting and if you use cucumber you won’t want to miss this conference.
Finally, I’m speaking at Agile DC. I’m giving a very funny talk about team collaboration. A few lucky attendees from the audience will get to put on costumes and help me with the talk.
Yet another podcast decided they wanted to hear me ramble on. If you’d like to hear me talk about testing mobile applications or testing in general you can listen to the podcast here.
I am beginning work on something I call Test Automation Bootcamp. It is an 8 week immersion into the practice of Test Automation. You can read about it here. You can also view the curriculum. I am very excited about putting this together. Please take the time to register on the website if you want to stay informed as things progress.
I’ve released another screencast. This screencast will show you how to use the Gametel gem to drive the development of an Android application.
I’ve created a couple of new email lists to help better respond to questions and discussions about both my book and my ruby gems. Here’s the links:
The list for discussions about and requesting help for the Cucumber & Cheese book is here.
The list for discussions about and requesting help for the PageObject and other ruby gems is here.
I’ve released another screencast. This screencast will show you how to use the page-object gem when driving your tests with RSpec.
I’ve released another screencast. This one builds a new Ruby Gem from scratch. This gem is a wrapper around jQueryUI controls making them usable by the page-object gem.
