I have set up a newsletter called Test
Automation Tips where I am going to send out various ideas
I have on the subject. As someone who has been practicing it for
several years and teaching it since 2003 (see QA Test Automation
using Perl) I might have a few interesting things to say.
Especially as mostly it is stuff I learned from the folks on the
Perl-QA list. I hope it will be
an interesting read.
The tips will come from several languages, most probably Perl,
and maybe even in .NET.
In addition I have set up the
Test Automation Discussion list,
a public mailing list
where people from the various languages and projects
can come together and discuss their experiences.
For example on the PHP-QAT
there is currently a discussion on the addition of something called XFAIL
which is very similar to the TODO tests in
TAP. I am sure people
from the Perl world could give their opinion there, but the same
subject could be discussed on a cross language mailing list as well.
For the RSS and Atom junkies I have setup a Planet called
Test Automation Planet.
It is aggregating blogs and is trying to filter on subjects
related to testing. I’d be really glad to get more suggestions on
what to add. Earlier I hardly read blogs but this already brought
me several interesting entries.
Lastly, I am going to teach my QA Test Automation using Perl
course on 19-20, June, right after
YAPC::NA in Chicago.
The syllabus is here.
The registration is on the same page as the other master classes organized
by brian d foy:
