Oct 4 JUG Meeting: Change Anything with Cucumber and ATDD
Cucumber Alright, so you've heard the TDD claim to fame. Your code
(Your functionality) is closely protected by an ever vigilant suite of
tests ready to stop bugs before they are even introduced. This sounds
good, eh? While TDD and unit testing provide numerous advantages in
addition to protecting existing functionality, one shortcoming you may
discover is that the scope of the unit test is too small. Yeah, it
tests how that individual class works, but will it test the
application as a whole? Furthermore, will my unit test even be useful
after a big change to the class structure? Not likely. Enter
Acceptance Test Driven Development using Cucumber. Test the whole
application, nothing but the application, and only the application.
Allow yourself to be free to change big things and still have absolute
confidence that your application still performs. Furthermore, doing
ATDD with Cucumber allows your tests to be in English (or Swedish if
you like). Whoa. Tests in English!? That sounds like a bad idea.  You
have to see it to believe it. It's DRY and it's awesome. See you

St. Louis County Library Thornhill Branch
You are invited to attend our meetings. They are usually held on the
first Thursday of every month from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Meetings are
free and open to the public.

A one dollar donation may be made toward the cost of the room;
otherwise, we have no membership dues or other charges for the
meetings. So, please join us at our next meeting or event for fun,
knowledge and networking. All hardware, operating systems and software
are explored.

This group welcomes new PC user hardware and software configuration
problems because it is fun to fix them. Help with Linux, other
Operating Systems and hardware problems is usually available.

# We hold a Linux Configuration Workshop when nothing else more
interesting comes up, or when there is no other event or activity
scheduled. Problems with other operating systems and hardware are also
frequently fixed. New software tools are often demonstrated. Linux is
an Internet capable Networking Operating System that provides many
fully functional applications that perform well on both older and new
computers. Most Linux distributions are free or low cost and provides
an extremely reliable and cost effective alternative to high priced
proprietary software.

# The workshop is where we usually examine, troubleshoot, fix and
repair difficult hardware and software configuration problems for
Linux newcomers.

# Bring your Linux PC to our hands on workshop to troubleshoot your
Linux installation, network connection or X Window GUI configuration
problem. We have full connectivity to the Internet on site and know
how to use it. # Just remember to bring your PC, monitor, keyboard,
mouse, cables, cords, power strips and two diskettes.
