Long time, no blog

It has been a long time since I blogged, not since I started working at Convio over a year ago. I just finished up being lead QA on a new product: Common Ground Forms, a fundraising platform for smaller non-profits that just launched. I’ve also been working with Hugh McGowan and the entire test team on Convio’s testing framework. Hugh and I have actually been pairing on this framework for several years.

We are in the process of migrating our test suites from Rasta to Rspec and Cucumber. We are also working on adding Firefox support using Watir WebDriver.

The Watir development team has also been putting out a series of releases, working towards integration with WebDriver, the core technology that powers Selenium 2.0.

Most of us are also making plans to attend SeConf in April.

I plan to use this blog to write about how we are using Cucumber and Watir at Convio. I am very happy that Alister Scott has agreed to also contribute to this blog. He has been a long-time contributor to the Watir project and is currently working as a testing consultant for ThoughtWorks. He has also been writing the Watirmelon blog.
