TestPlant released eggPlant v16.1 this month, and I’m writing to talk to you about my favorite of the marquee features: support for Gherkin, the language of the Cucumber BDD framework. (Cue the vegetable puns!) Throughout our internal beta and in our v16.1 webinars, I’ve heard some great questions about Gherkin and our implementation of it that I’d like to share here. (I will also unabashedly share my preoccupation with Pokémon Go.)

I recently presented at the Northern Lights conference in Manchester. This conference was hosted by the BCS (British Computing Society), and my talk was “Tools. Techniques. Trouble? Why test automation is getting more difficult, and what can be done about it.” You may have seen my blog post from ahead of the show, but if you haven’t yet, you can find it here.
