[Cucumber] LinkedIn group & cocktail recipe


#1

Hi all

For no other good reason than I wanted the Cucumber logo on my
LinkedIn profile - and I’m addicted to creating stuff on LinkedIn - I
created a Cucumber group[1].

Well there is one good reason - more and more people I’m meeting are
looking at Cucumber and using it without considering themselves “RSpec
users”. So I think it’d be good to have a group for Cucumber-focused
people.

In fact I’m starting to think I could expand the coaching I do to non-
Ruby developers/teams who use Cucumber for BDD. (Or rather -
developers that don’t, but should.) Subversively getting them using
Ruby would be a bonus =)

So anyway please join!

On a tangential note, this baryouth I know who works in a coffee-shop/
bar near me surprised me the other day when I asked for a new drink.
He actually went out to a shop to get the magic ingredient, and
produced… a cucumber martini[2]! Think you need a really fine mesh
to make a real one though. As I don’t have a sweet tooth, I got him
to make it with no sugar. Think the weather was a bit cold at the
time, but it’d make a nice stiff summer drink. Slightly bitter but
very refreshing. If anyone is planning a BDD conference in southern
Italy, these should be on the menu* =)

  • Since I’m pretty sure it’s working in software development that
    turned me alcoholic, I think serving cucumber martinis would be
    justification for an RSpec/Cucumber conference…
