This presentation will take you through the steps needed to set up a test automation project using Cucumber – a software tool that runs automated tests in the BBD style – in combination with Lapis Lazuli, a gem that provides Cucumber helper functions and scaffolding for easier web test automation suite development.

To do this you will need to have installed Ruby with some drivers and libraries. You can find detailed notes on how to do this here:

To successfully follow this tutorial, prior knowledge of test automation isn’t needed, but knowledge of scripting – especially Ruby – and HTML skills are recommended.
