Geoff Bache will present pyUseCase, a tool for testing GUIs written using pyGTK. (GTK is the cross platform windowing toolkit used in Gnome amongst other things.) Geoff has invented pyUseCase, which allows tests to be written using record/replay, with minimal effort. The tests are recorded in a domain language, which makes them easier to maintain when the GUI changes. Sound too good to be true? Come along and see it in action.

After the break we will try to build a small GUI application using pyGTK and test it with pyUseCase. Bring a laptop if you can, and preferably install pyGTK, texttest and pyUseCase on it beforehand. (see http://texttest.carme... (http://texttest.carmen.se/index.php?page=download)). (Geoff will be making a new release of pyUseCase ahead of the meeting).
