Cucumber can be really very simple. Here’s a short video to show how you can get started in two minutes flat, using only two files: a simple feature file, and a few lines of ruby to execute it.
The simplest Cucumber project ever

My 2D indie space game for PC and Mac: a thinking person's space sim inspired by Elite and Asteroids.
A fabulous little card game for 2 - 4 players. Free to play: you just need some playing cards and counters.
I am an itinerant agilist, programmer, writer and trainer.
I consult in technical architecture and agile management, and I train and coach teams in BDD, automated, testing, clean code and great team practices. I train publicly at BDD Kickstart and make Sol Trader.
I was the owner of the Ruby shop Eden Development, which led the way in applying the BDD process to client projects. More recently, I designed the hosting infrastructure and was one of the leading developers on e-petitions, a high profile web application that was written using BDD techniques and had 17 million visits in its first year. Clients have included large organisations such as the BBC and Cabinet Office (working at GDS on the new GOV.UK platform) as well as a number of startups.
I have spoken on Ruby, Cucumber, being agile, code quality and programmer education at conferences including Rubyconf, the Scottish Ruby Conference, and Software Craftsmanship North America and Software Craftsmanship UK.
