Sauce Labs

We got set up with Sauce Labs last week and are starting to play around with it. It seems like it will be a great addition to our automated testing. We are in the process of redefining how we use Selenium here, so that it is used more effectively and strategically.

Really, our greatest challenge has been getting everything smoothly integrated through Hudson, which I think will make a huge difference. The whole team worked through it together and we learned a ton.

At Agile 2010 I heard Jason Huggins speak about using selenium to make demos of functionality for shareholders. I loved this idea. What a great planĀ  to give people an easy way to keep track of a project’s current status and to nail down the functionality for some high level tests. We are trying a similar idea now for a widely used site to help users get a good handle on the features. We are hoping it is our first finalized example of the new automation process with sauce labs integrated. I am really excited!
