Upcoming Talks and a Webinar

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.
