Testing automation at Devoxx in the United States: ConSol presentation on March 22, 2017

This year, the first Devoxx in the United States is being held in San Jose, California. Under the slogan "From Developers for Developers", developers are invited to explore the latest trends and technology in software development from March 21 to March 23, 2017.

As part of the Tools-in-Action Sessions, Citrus expert Christoph Deppisch, a consultant and software architect for ConSol Software GmbH, will be speaking on "Behavior-driven integration with Cucumber and Citrus" on March 22 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Citrus is an open-source test framework developed by ConSol for complex, large-scale system environments; Cucumber is a test tool for agile software development. After an introduction to both frameworks, participants will have the opportunity to discuss the concepts and approaches to testing.

A technical event, where participants can forge new contacts with other developers, tops off each day of the convention.
