Hello Everyone!

To those of you who were able to attend last night's inaugural event of the SF Selenium Meetup group, THANK YOU!? Wow, what a terrific turnout and interest level!? As well to the seven Selenium developers who attended:? thanks for Selenium and thanks for sharing your time with us!

A those who joined us last night know, we had a terrific session.? A few seats short of a full house, the program was chock full of enthusiasm and passion for our common interest:? testing web apps with Selenium.? Simon Stewart wowed us with an introduction to Selenium 2.0, its capabilities and ease of migration when it comes out.? Se contributor Patrick Lightbody announced that Selenium is now officially 1.0, complete with a new set of robust documentation.? Attendees asked question after question of the Selenium creators who responded with a non-stop flow of insights plus hints and tricks (check out #sfse and 'selenium' on twitter for other choice anecdotes).

Facility people had to literally flash the lights and herd us out after 10 PM.? Diehards!

Fresh on the heels of our first event, thoughts turn to our next one.? Selenium Grid creator Philippe Hanrigou has agreed to be the featured presenter at an upcoming event.? He plans to talk about "High ROI Testing."? The idea being to focus on practices that make tests more easily maintainable over time, and using the right test type for a given test purpose.? Given some of the battle stories we hear out there, this should be an excellent session.? But before we commit this to be the topic of our next meetup, I wanted to pose the question to the group:? what would you like to hear about?? What would you like to talk about?? Figure this next meeting will be mid-summer some time.

Let me know.

Best regards,
