Using tools like SeleNesse for .NET, Dawn Cannan has allowed companies to shorten the feedback loop between testers and developers, and set up the tools for creating tests that are readable to business people. Cannan also talks about the things to watch out for in automated testing.
Dawn Cannan is a software testing evangelist and QA manager who is also a maintainer on an open source plugin that connects Selenium and FitNesse, called SeleNesse. The company she currently works for, DocSite, didn't have a formal testing department before she arrived. Cannan helped implement the company's first testing and automation infrastructure. Cannan says automated testing infrastructure should be easy to build, access, run, and report on.
