Quality comes free with open source software tools – Functional Testing

This is a continuation of the previous talk in HKOSC 2013. Steven will continue introducing open source test automation for functional testing. Again tools appear straightforward, but testing at functional level is a lot more than catching bugs. There will be demonstration to illustrate on what’s more we can do than merely catching bugs – let’s prevent them in the first place.
