Softwerkskammer: Cucumber Workshop

Setup Instructions

During the Workshop we will be coding and therefore depend on an environment that supports us doing so. To encourage mutual support between participants and to allow for easier pair programming let us agree to stick to the setup described bellow. That is, we will be using IntelliJ since it properly supports cucumber via a native plugin. Furthermore glue code will be written in Java.

Nevertheless Java skills are not a prerequisite. Only basic programming know- how is required per pair. Please setup your laptop in advance and bring it with you.
