San Francisco Selenium Meetup Group Message Board › New Meetup: Testing Tools Demo Night
San Francisco, CA
After a brief break, the SF Selenium Meetup is back with a bang! We have a robust line-up of #SFSE members presenting tools and methods of their own creation which we believe will stimulate plenty of thought, questions and follow up action. Space will be limited at this event. Please RSVP responsibly :-).
Announcing a new Meetup for San Francisco Selenium Meetup Group!
What: Testing Tools Demo Night
When: Tuesday, April 20, 2010 6:30 PM
500 Third Street (at Bryant) Suite 240
San Francisco, CA 94107
Come see #SFSE members demonstrate leading edge tools / techniques that make functional testing easier and more effective. We have three presenters so far (see details below) with room for one more. Each presenter will have 15 minutes. Please contact the organizer if you have something you'd like to demo to the group. Presentations will be video recorded and posted.

7:30 Selenium + FitNesse - A QA Multiplier Effect
7:50 Integrating Selenium into a continuous test harness
Selenium + FitNesse - A QA Multiplier Effect
This demonstration will show how Selenium, integrated into a FitNesse framework, can extend an organization's ability to create more automated test cases without the need for Selenium programming while expanding the ability to test across all popular browsers. Using FitNesse, QA managers, Product Managers, testers, and other stakeholders can easily create wiki-based test stories that immediately execute across multiple browsers. This solution enables organizations to provide higher-quality test coverage at a lower cost. FitNesse reduces the cost for technical staff and automated test script maintenance. Ray Vizzone, and Matt Krapivner of SmartPilot will demonstrate testing a live website using a customized, keyword-driven FitNesse grammar, integrated with Sauce OnDemand which obviates the need to build out testing hardware.
Integrating Selenium into a continuous test harness; dynamically generate type-safe test APIs
As the provider of highly configurable enterprise software cross multiple products, we need our web UI tests to run continuously over each check-in during development, provide reliable and speedy results, and maintainable over releases and active feature development. We'd like to share our experience of integrating Selenium into the continuous test harness, and a few interesting things we do: for example, running the same web UI test script in multiple modes (browser, server and load test mode); dynamically generating type-safe test APIs, so that test authors can write UI tests in an editor with type-ahead intellisense, and verify tests at compilation time. Jing Chen, UI Architect at Guidewire Software
A sneak preview of new Selenium capabilities will be presented by event host, Sauce Labs
