pdx Selenium & Test Automation Users Group Message Board › pdx-Se Monthly Update! July Meetup Free Beer & Pizza !!
First I want to thank our sponsors for the meeting space and pizza!!
saucelabs.com & teksystems.com
Sauce Labs & Teksystems have made long term commitments to supporting our user group and becoming part of our community. Please take a look at the services they provide and support them. I have used them both and they both rock!
Also vircon.com said they heard great stuff about our group and stated they are going to come meet us all and buy a few pitchers of beer for the group! Hopefully we can turn them into a long term supporter!
What is all this FUF about! Frequently used functions a.k.a. tools I use a lot!
Test automaters are only as good as their tools. Come and get some new tools from An Doan (Andy) for that tool box!
Any ideas? Post them to the link above! We have a few ideas in the bucket. We are working on getting the folks from browsermob/neustar come talk about Performance testing with Selenium or maybe Jack come talk about some of the automation work he is doing at ebay mobile.
Potential right now to have Lee Copeland come and speak to the group! We are working on bringing him into town for a lunch time Future of Quality discussion panel in association with the http://www.techoregon.org/ previous sao.org. We will have to move the meetup to the 2nd thursday of the month to make it happen and also talk to our sponsors to see if we can pay for another night stay for Lee....but it is in the works and might just happen!
Also in September is the Ignite TAO! v3 - Sept 27th, which we will support again! Maybe we can get somebody else from the user group to speak this time! Check out An Doan (Andy) from last Ignite! http://youtu.be/iAARP7x3_Nk
Start working on your presentation now & tell us you want the October Slot!
We are also working our Tech Association of Oregon contacts to see if pdx Selenium User group can get a "booth" at the Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference October 8-10 http://www.pnsqc.org/ If we do we might need some volunteers to man the booth. Also thinking of building a twitter follower thanker bot built on selenium for the event! So we might need help with that as well.
See you on the 19th of July!!
Jim, Andy & Randy
