SmartBear Announces Acquisition of Cucumber Ltd
SmartBear Reinforces Its Commitment to Open Source Growth by Securing the Agile Development BDD Practices of Cucumber
For SmartBear, this latest news reaffirms its continued investment in open source (OS) communities, as the company already supports the industry-leading OS tools, Swagger (https://swagger.io/)
Cucumber OS tooling is already used by nearly a million developers and testers around the globe to enhance their agile development practices using BDD, and the Cucumber engine is known for its portability across platforms.
"The Cucumber community can count on our continued support and focus on open source tooling," said Christian Wright (https://www.linkedin.com/

Not only does this help ensure the continued evolution of Cucumber's leadership in the BDD thought arena and open test automation framework, it allows SmartBear and Cucumber to work closer together so they can find ways to help users at all stages of their agile/digital transformation. Users and teams can use it at any point of the SDLC – from automating their tests with Gherkin syntax, to already-mature agile teams adopting BDD to enhance their lifecycle/development processes.
