Awesome Acceptance Testing at SPA 2008

I’ve been pretty slack at letting people know about upcoming talks. I could blame workload or burnout or any number of other plausible-sounding reasons, but a lot of it is just down to not prioritising very well. I should fix that.

A couple of years ago Joe Walnes and I gave a talk at an XP Day entitled “Awesome Acceptance Testing” (blame Joe for the title). We looked at motivations for acceptance testing and discussed various strategies, tools and techniques. But mostly it was an opportunity to get a bunch of people in a room and find out what they thought and what they were up to in the acceptance testing space.

If you didn’t get to see it and it sounds like fun, we’ll be rerunning the session at SPA 2008 in March. I hope to see you there.

  1. Looking forward to it! Although the previous session title sounded cool as well. Did you change the session or just the title?

    Just wanted to let you know that we’re about to release Stormwind.Accuracy release 0.4.0 with a lot of new goodies.

    You can find more about Accuracy in http://using.stormwindproject.org:8081/display/accuracy/Home.

    It’s a BDD-style Acceptance Test framework for Web Apps. It’s entirely written in .Net and it uses WatiN as a browser Driver. We have a ticket for implementing support for Selenium, but so far noone ventured in that area.

    You can also check the roadmap ahead for Accuracy in http://jira.stormwindproject.org.

    We have 2 thoughtworkers working in Accuracy as of now and several different devs from all over the world as well.

    It’s growing to be very useful!

    Anyway, just thought of mentinoning!
