This weekend Sean Chambers and I put on a day-long testing workshop at Microsoft in Tampa, FL. I want to thank all the attendees for giving up their Saturday to come out and learn about testing.
Special thanks to Joe Healy for putting on the event. He deserves a lot of credit for allowing us to come and use his space and eat his food and let us talk all day about something that wasn’t even Microsoft-specific. It’s because of the guys like him (and others) out in the trenches that I still have hope for Redmond.
This event wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Sean, I checked out on the planning during my multi-month headache, so send mad props his way.
Some housekeeping from the event, I promised to throw up some links for some of the stuff we talked about.
First up is unit testing frameworks – all of which will do what we showed in the demo:
Next up we have Mocking/Isolation Frameworks:
And don’t forget, you can always quickly write your own test doubles and fakes.
Testing the UI:
- Fitnesse (shown by Cory)
- Selenium (web testing)
- Watir (web)
- Watin (web)
- Test Run (the tool I couldn’t remember and you all thought I was insane)
And there are many more, these are just the ones I rememberd mentioning. Remember, if you need to test it, there’s a way to do it, it’s just about finding the right tools.
If there’s anything I forgot to include post a comment and I will update. Thanks again to everyone who came, and I look forward to doing it again!
