GSoC: Browser Automated Tests for Joomla! CMS

The success of GSoC16 of joomla project opened a lot of doors for me. Here I am presenting my work with Automated Testing as BDD - Gherkin, codeception how we’ve written the test of scenarios to our project and how we helped Joomla! it through the project.
Hello folks! How to make Joomla! CMS tests better with Gherkin and Codeception? BDD (Behavior Driven development) in its grandest sense is about communication and viewing your software as a system with functionality and features. Using the BDD approach to write test cases makes test cases easy. BDD tests are easily understandable by non developers and testers.
All of us, Joomla! users, expect to have our favorite CMS improved regularly. And we expect too that the updates will bring us just new functionalities and not new errors. To reach this expectations, automated tests run each time that a new change is made in the code to check the basic functionalities. The challenge is: how to make these tests better?
