Event Description

The topic for November is

Automated Testing at Comcast


Slides from the talk are here

Have you ever wondered how large organizations whose software is the lifeblood of the company, and the lack of these tests could spell doom for the company?  And what kind of  testing scenarios do they use?    How does one control the myriad of tests that are needed?

Our speaker Tom Filocco is Director of Quality Assurance at Comcast Interactive Media.  This is a repeat of the very successful presentation he gave in August downtown, and he is now bringing it out for those in the western regions to hear.

To start the meeting, Byron Druss of Say Eureqa, who is our food sponsor and developer of automated Selenium Add-on will present some survey results for how our region compares to industry standards for testing and automation.

eureQa, LLC is the name of the company, as is their software product.  Remember the URL
