Applications increasingly use HTTP to talk to each other, but often the client side of this interaction remains heavily under-tested as there aren't easy ways to get whatever server responses you need while testing. RoboHydra is a server and framework specifically written to allow this: you can program test scenarios up-front and easily switch between them, and also change the server behaviour dynamically through its web interface. This makes RoboHydra a very useful tool when doing functional tests, both when doing exploratory testing and with more formal test suites.

About Esteban Manchado Velázquez:

Esteban Manchado Velázquez is a software engineer with experience in development, quality assurance and project management. He's a firm believer in open source, tools and automated tests, and his latest open source project is RoboHydra, a tool to help test programs that communicate over HTTP. Among other companies, he has worked at Opera Software, where he played a key role in the test automation for projects such as My Opera and Opera Link. Apart from computers, Esteban enjoys reading and making comics, playing drums in a jazz and a rock band, and being a beginner songwriter.

We start up with pizza and free beer at 18:00 and the talk starts when we are filled up and happy.

After the meetup we walk down to Oslo Mekaniske or similar for further diskusions and beers.
