Functional CI with SeleniumRC and Hudson; Intro to Selenium Grid

I'm thrilled to announce we're kicking off the first Boston Selenium meetup! Join us the evening of January 25 to meet your fellow group members, and hear two great talks by David Jellison & Collin Riley of Constant Contact, and Kevin Menard, maintainer of the Selenium Grid Project and co-founder of Mogotest. If you've never been to a meetup event before, it's a great opportunity to connect and network with other like-minded techies in a fun, friendly, and supportive environment. Feel free to bring friends and colleagues, and please help spread the word!

Agenda
6:30: Sign-in, networking, drinks, refreshments
7:00: Welcome, Agenda Overview, Announcements, Introductions
7:15: David Jellison & Collin Riley Speak + Q&A
8:00: Kevin Menard Speaks + Q&A
8:45: Wrap-up; networking
9:15: Lights out

Abstracts
David Jellison & Collin Riley's talk will illustrate Constant Contact's approach to running sets of regression test suites on a regular schedule using SeleniumRC and Hudson. Hudson is a continuous integration server designed for building applications and running unit test unattended, and storing run report and metric artifacts. Hudson can also process a variety of different types of jobs, including running SeleniumRC Java test cases using JUnit as the test runner. SeleniumRC can be run unattended on multiple slave computers in parallel, each running SeleniumRC, to quickly run through many test cases.

Kevin Menard's talk will cover why Selenium Grid is a great way for testing your application across a cluster of browsers configured for different environments. Kevin will give an intro to Selenium Grid, discuss some of the more recent enhancements to the project, and discuss its future direction.

    Thanks to Ashley and Sauce Labs for helping to pull this together, too. I meant to give them a shout out after my talk, but forgot to in my haste. I also forgot my Mac monitor adapter. Oops.

    This was a great start to a series of meetups. I'm pleased with the turnout and questions. I saw many being reacquainted with past colleagues. I hope the topics were useful. We should plan to dive deeper and demonstrate more in future meetups.

    I enjoyed both talks, it's inspiring to hear what people are doing with Selenium and related tools. David & Collin's talk showed Se deftly employed to solve real business problems; and Kevin is using Se to build/run a business! I appreciate Kevin's dedication to Se-GRID development.

    It was very cool to see what other folks were doing in this area and the variety of solutions to common problems and issues.

    Found this: "Any un-gated MIT lot is available to the public after 5pm. The most convenient is probably the Hayward Street lot by the Au Bon Pain on Main Street in Kendall Square."

    $10 parking is weekends only, I believe. I think it'll be $20 because it's a week night. I may be mistaken though.

    January 25, 2011

  • David J.

    Yes, there is parking in the same building. So far I've heard a range of $10 to $20 to park in that building. Kevin Menard said there is usually some street parking in front of the building.

    Pizza will arrive at 6:30pm
