Project Team Bio

These are the people behind Pyccuracy.


Bernardo Heynemann

Bernardo "I can't wait till you get home" Heynemann was the creator of Pyccuracy. Currently working at Globo.com as Software Developer.

Before joining Globo.com, he was working at ThoughtWorks.

When working in a previous project, he witnessed huge benefits of applied Test-Driven-Development with Acceptance Tests.

Pyccuracy is born of that: the need to improve quality of delivered software. Quick response to change and alignment with customer expectations are some of the concerns Pyccuracy was born to cather for.

Bernardo is working hard at improving agile and polyglot programming to better enable software delivery at Globo.com. He is blogging sparsely about his current experiences.

If you need to reach him, just leave a message in Pyccuracy's development group or e-mail/IM at heynemann *at* gmail *dot* com.



ClŠudio Figueiredo

Claudio "jc" Figueiredo is a contributer of Pyccuracy since the beggining having worked on it's .net predecessor, Accuracy. Currently working at Globo.com as Software Developer.

Always looking for "the best tool for the job". When one cannot be found, he does what any good developer should do: - Builds one.

His interest in Pyccuracy is due to that: the need to improve quality of delivered software, and not finding any tool that delivers TDD for Acceptance tests.

Claudio is working hard at improving his agile and polyglot programming to better enable software delivery at Globo.com.

If you need to reach him, just leave a message in Pyccuracy's development group or e-mail/IM at jcfigueiredo at gmail dot com.



Gabriel Falc„o

Gabriel Falcão is a collaborator since the early days of Pyccuracy. Currently working at Globo.com as a Senior systems analyst.

Analyst as a role, developer by passion, enthusiastic of free software development, specially related with GNU(ish) stuff. Works with web development, but loves GNOME desktop development. He's the creator of Guake Terminal.

Saw in Pyccuracy a perfect way to avoid all the boring steps of creating hand-written selenium acceptance tests. He's working hard to help bringing Pyccuracy to more people through debian packages.

Gabriel has a lot of experience with GTK+ and all Glib-based libraries, as with general GNU/Linux software development.

In his pretty much out-of-date portuguese and english blogs, writes about daydreams related to free software development.

You can reach him by IM/xmpp at gabrielfalcao *at* jabber-br *dot* org.



Guilherme Chapiewski

Guilherme "gc" Chapiewski is a collaborator since the early days of Pyccuracy. Currently working at Globo.com as Agile Software Development Leader.

He is enthusiastic about agile software development practices and sees in Pyccuracy a great opportunity to help creating a tool to improve exponentially web applications quality with ease and joy (and finally make the business guys writing acceptance tests).

Guilherme is an active contributor and widely known in the brazilian software development community. He is crazy about learning new programming languages, tools and techniques.

At his job he is responsible for coaching and helping development teams to excel their programming skills and to evangelize agile software development.

He writes regularly in his portuguese blog about his experiences and he is incredibly lazy to create an english one - but will do it in a near future.

You can reach him by e-mail/IM at guilherme *dot* chapiewski *at* gmail *dot* com.



Other options

We encourage any users to try other options that provide similar functionality. So far we are only aware of Cucumber for ruby. If you have any other option that you'd like to share with the community just leave a message at Pyccuracy Dev Group and we'll add it here.



Cucumber

In the words of the project website (http://cukes.info/):


"Cucumber lets software development teams describe how software should behave in plain text. The text is written in a business-readable domain-specific language and serves as documentation, automated tests and development-aid - all rolled into one format.


Cucumber works with Ruby, Java, .NET, Flex or web applications written in any language. It has been translated to over 30 spoken languages.


Cucumber also supports more succinct tests in tables - similar to what FIT does. Dig around in the examples and documentation to learn more about Cucumber tables."


 
Pyccuracy is an open-source Python project with an OSI license.

The entry barrier for coding in Pyccuracy is really small, since the codebase is itself small as you can see in the stats above.

If you think you can contribute, join our dev list, check our JIRA server for the open tickets for the current release and start coding.
