Still Testing Your Software with Computers?

Still testing your software with computers?

Using Behat and Sauce Labs to Automate cross browser testing.

Automated software testing has come a long way. Libraries like Cucumber and Behat now allow business requirements to be translated into automated acceptance tests. And yet, many companies are still testing browser compatibility with a suite of computers or virtual machines. Even worse the testing is (gasp) manual.

In this "how-to" presentation, Jason Fox will walk through the basics of behavior driven development and detail some of the hurdles of setting up end-to-end cross browser testing using Sauce Labs for both a simple php and ruby application.
