Just purchased a new automation development book, Cucumbers and Cheese: A Tester's Workshop

This morning, I just purchased Jeff "Cheezy" Morgan's LeanPub book, "Cucumbers and Cheese: A Tester's Workshop . 

Although this book came out in 2012 and was last updated in 2017, the Gherkin + Ruby + Watir + Page-Object Ruby Gem framework described was the basis of the initial framework my workplace uses.

"In Cucumber and Cheese, Cheezy shares the concepts that help teams succeed with ATDD (aka

work the examples along with Cheezy, who makes them accessible even to people with not-so-much

"The book includes essential seekrits such as how to handle Ajax and that pesky waiting for events
to occur. Cucumber and Cheese is soup to nuts, from general principles like page objects and Don’t

"Cheezy has a gift for making you enjoy yourself so much, you might forget you’re learning
something you thought would be hard. Lots of examples! And puppies!"
