PyCon 2009 is right around the corner, I mean right around the corner and I’ve been kicking it into overdrive over the past couple of weeks getting prepared. I’ll be teaching a tutorial with people from my team at work and giving a talk on configuration modules in Python, I’m much more excited to be moderating the panel on functional web testing tools:
The purpose of this panel is to allow the maintainers to introduce (or reintroduce) their functional testing framework to the Python community, as well as to have a frank discussion about how externalities like Web development frameworks and AJAX have changed testing strategies. This should also be a forum for discussion about how to improve the challenging art of functional testing of web applications.
I’m really quite excited to have Jason Huggins from the Selenium project on the same panel as Adam Christian and Mikeal Rogers from the Windmill project. And as if it couldn’t get better, Ian Bicking also will be participating representing WebTest and Kumar McMillan will be on the panel as well representing Nose. And even then, if you thought it couldn’t get better Titus Brown will also be on the panel for Twill.*
But, this panel needs your help…we need your questions, insights, thoughts about the tools or the challenges of functional testing. I’ve made a “series” in Google Moderator called, Ask the PyCon 2009 Functional Testing Tools Panel. Here you can submit your questions so that they can get asked to the panel.
