Hi

I am currently learning Java, for my own interest, and am still very much a Newbie. I am interested if you think that the Cucumber book would help me to commission work ie the customer with the wild idea, so that I can better refine and describe what it is I want or is it specifically aimed at devs.

Many thanks

Rob

Hi Rob,

You don't say what it is that you normally do, but we've certainly aimed several (especially early on) chapter to non-technical readers. Cucumber's purpose is to bridge the gap between developers and non-technical stakeholders, and we wanted those readers to get something out of the book too. If you're interested in learning some new techniques for analysing and understanding requirements, I think the early chapters in the book will be helpful. You could also try Gojko Adzic's excellent book, Specification by Example:
