Cukenfest london

a bdd conference

first week of april, 2019

Once a year in London we host a low-key agile and BDD conference. We open our doors to just 120 people to learn and discover new ways to build shared understanding in agile teams.

Software projects often fail because of a lack of communication and collaboration. If the business and IT aren’t on speaking terms, you can quickly end up building the wrong thing. By bringing the right people together from the beginning, to discover hidden information and misunderstandings, you are more likely to deliver high-quality software on time and in budget.

Our conference focuses on proven technical and non-technical techniques and tactics which you can apply in your own team.

BDD Kickstart training / April 2-3 2019

A world-class Behaviour-Driven Development training course led by one of the core team at Cucumber.

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
CukenFest 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.
