Cukenfest london 2018

about cukenfest


Once a year we host an intimate event in London for the BDD and agile community. We open our doors to just 150 people to learn and discuss new ideas which build shared understanding.

In the last decade, we've seen more teams approach problems collaboratively, wrestle misunderstandings before they seep into the code, and use progressive technical practices to ship faster. CukenFest focuses on discovering new ways to bring business and IT closer together. Join us in London to learn and share new skills which harness the power of collaboration.

BDD Kickstart training / April 17-18

A world-class Behaviour-Driven Development training course led by a core-team member of Cucumber. 

cukenfest conference / April 19-20

Sponsors + Friends

Sponsorship provides fuel for our conference engine. Without it, we won't have decent coffee,  stacks of cold beers, or any of the good stuff we love to provide. Each sponsor gets to put their brand behind a part of the conference they want to be associated with: childcare, OSS scholarships, t-shirts, coffee, lunch, party drinks, you name it. Contact us if you're interested.

People saying nice things about CukenFest.

I’ve learned lots of useful techniques at CukenFest, even though the projects I’ve been involved in have rarely involved Cucumber. It’s about the techniques, not the technology.
— Nat Pryce
We’ve only just started on the BDD journey and it’s easy to get a bit overwhelmed. I came back from CukenFest feeling re-energised - listening to the talks and talking to other people in the community reinforced for me that this is a mindshift for everyone involved.
— Angela Relle, Met Office

It was the best conference I ever went to, no doubt! Great talks and an open space with inspiring participants.
— Tim Coremans, BNP Paribas
CukeUp is a welcoming community event where you get to learn about different aspects of what makes a software product team perform and tick. This includes code, tests, collaboration and arguably most importantly - culture.
