Predicting things is hard. Predicting the future is, unfortunately, even harder.

That said, your question can't be properly answered. I can only look
at my self and knowing about Behaviour-Driven Development, BDD, is
beneficiary for me. It gives me a tool for communication,
documentation, and automation that simplifies the development of
systems I work on.

It all depends on how you choose to use the tool. If testing is your
primary goal, then there might be easier tools to use.
If communication with developers as well as business representatives s
yout goal, then I would say that it is a good tool to use in some
circumstances.

The only way to know if it something that will work for you is to
learn to use BDD and Cucumber and then evaluate from your personal
perspective.

Hi,

From my experiences of following BDD since last 1 years, it saves team
from re-work by avoiding "You Burn, I Scrape" approach.

For me BDD is like "Brushing teeth at night ( which is optional ) if you
don't do; you will end visiting dentist more often and spending money &
undergoing lots of pain"

I've recently given talk on BDD, Cucumber usage in automation projects (
Web, Mobile ) , you can refer to

Hello Narayanasamy,

From personal experience/opinion only: I've done test automation in
Java/Selenium only for about two years at my previous job. We had a lot of
code duplication;
each test case was a separate class, so any steps that were shared between
test cases would be more or less duplicated. In my new job, I started using
cucumber;
using steps and step definitions removed most, if not all, duplication
between test cases. In addition, using gherkin makes it easier for me to
communicate with
business stakeholders (Product owner, Business Analysts). Finally, in
projects with little to no documentation, having a kind of 'runnable
specifications' (feature files)
has helped me a lot in figuring out new functionality / test cases! So all
in all, I enjoy using cucumber a lot. I don't know if this is relevant to
you. ;)
Regarding your question on whether it is useful to learn for your career,
I'd suggest looking at the types of jobs you want and what are they asking
for. If you see a lot
of demand for cucumber, then definitely yes! If not, I would still consider
it useful to your career to at least look into different types of tools to
use (and have an opinion
on if/why you do // don't like them). This may or may not include cucumber.
Hope this helps!

Regards,
Marit
