Why learn Cucumber?

Testing is one of the most important parts of a software development lifecycle. To test whether your code is working according to the expectations, software testing is paramount before releasing it into production. Modern testers are leveraging a methodology termed as BDD or Behavior Driven Development and the Cucumber framework is a flagship tool for the same. With the back-end code in Ruby, Cucumber has become one of the most widely used frameworks leveraged for testing by professionals. If you are operating in an environment where collaboration is required from senior stakeholders, then Cucumber framework is the way to go.

Owing to its quick installation and easy set-up, it is quite simple to involve business stakeholders who find it difficult to understand the code. Learning the framework in this fast-paced business world where expectations change quite rapidly is highly useful. The flexibility of the Cucumber framework can be seen as it supports many other languages other than Ruby, like Java, Scala and Groovy. With more and more organizations moving towards an agile framework, the ability to wield Cucumber because of its collaborative nature is in high demand these days.

Cucumber has a market share of 1.0% and it is used by 1,488 companies across the globe. Its usage can be witnessed as the highest in computer software companies that represent 26% of its users. Moreover, you can see its usage in other major industries like banking, insurance, telecommunications, and more.

Benefits:

With most organizations adopting agile methodologies in their workflows, the Cucumber tool helps in bringing business leaders to the table due to the framework’s collaborative nature. This offers multiple benefits to the organizations as well as individuals.

Individual Benefits: Taking up a training course in Cucumber is quite useful for an individual trying to make a career in testing and development while operating in an agile manner:

  • Get more flexibility into your career as it supports multiple languages like Java.net and Ruby, thereby making you an attractive hire
  • According to Pay Scale a professional who can work on the Cucumber framework earns an average of $60k
  • Explain your work to leadership quite easily and improve chances of career advancements

Organizational Benefits: Getting trained in the Cucumber framework has certain organizational benefits as well:

  • Cucumber acts as a bridge between leadership and developers as cases can be created in plain English, thereby improving communication across the organization
  • It provides the non-programmers with an opportunity to get their hands dirty as well. Test scripts can be written without any prior coding knowledge.
  • Simplistic test script architecture allows the code to be re-used, thereby saving time and money

Courses for the Cucumber framework are in great demand as organizations are increasingly moving to agile workflows and they need everyone, including the leadership, to be on the same page as the developers and testers.
