In November, I accepted a new position as a SDET within my company. With it, I get the opportunity to program in Ruby full-time, something I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time. Since then, my life has become quite the whirlwind. I have been engrossed in learning the language as well as coming up to speed with the testing culture and being an evangelist to our Devs and QAs.
I’ve also had the opportunity to talk to many people active in the community who are experts in testing to try and learn the best ways to implement automated acceptance testing within an organization.
My first order of business is to implement automated UI testing using Cucumber and Watir. I’m sure over the next few months I’ll be blogging about the challenges that we face to achieve these goals. Stay tuned!
