Event Description

We are on for tonight--as planned.


RSVP is closed for this event. helps small businesses to form a corporation or an LLC and do other filings with federal, state, and local governments.  Our team of ~10 people maintains this web site and several related applications.  Following the scrum process, we deliver new features to the live web site every three weeks.  As the business has grown and new features are implemented, the need for consistent quality has risen.

A year ago, we began using Fitnesse and Selenium for functional testing.  We currently run a regression suite of over 1,700 tests every day.  During this talk, we will demonstrate the tools we are using and run some live tests.  We will talk about the advantages and challenges we see in this approach.  We will discuss why we chose these tools instead of QTP, the testing solution favored by our corporate parent.  This is very much a work in process.  We look forward to a lively discussion.

Presented by Chris Deephouse

I will be introduced to Selenium testing on this next phase of work on the project I am on, so am looking forward to this discussion!

Good timing!  We're just ramping up on Selenium for functional testing.  Will be interesting to hear about Fitnesse again, given my not-so-good experience with it in a previous life.

Sounds like a great talk, and it's scheduled for my birthday! I might not be able to go due to festivities, but if I do I might have to bring cupcakes or something...
