Collaborative Test Automation: The Maven Way

Like the way Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do teaches minimal movement with maximum effect and extreme speed, Ryan Davis from the Vesta Corporation will be talking about Maven Do. The Maven Way uses Apache Maven to minimize setup and maximize testing at extreme speeds.

Learn how to manage and accelerate your collaborative test automation project with Maven.

    Thanks for agreeing to be my captive audience for an hour last night, I had a great time.

    For your 1337 H4X0RZ out there, I did change my GitHub password after the demo last night.

    This is almost everything you will need to get setup.

    Did anyone leave a brown cardigan sweater at the meetup last night? I've holding it hostage in exchange for 15 hours of SauceLabs time.

    Maven rocks! I used it at my last job. I'll be interested in hearing Ryan's talk. P.S. I am unemployed as of a week ago, so if you guys know of any opportunities...

      Hey Aaron, Jive's lead recruiter Matt Gradin will be at the Maven talk. If you're interested in hearing about opportunities in automated testing at Jive, be sure to introduce yourself.
