TITLE:
A Lap Around Telerik Test Studio

PRESENTER:
John Bristowe

SESSION ABSTRACT:

Testing: Great idea? Or, the greatest idea? Sure, we all want to do it. But how many of you can say it's easy? That's typically what snubbed us; the complexity and maintenance of tests for our code. Wouldn't it be awesome if there was a better way? In this session, John Bristowe will show you how to achieve test nirvana with Telerik Test Studio. He'll highlight functional UI testing, load testing, and performance testing all through Test Studio's experience.

I’m pleased to welcome the kind folks at Aspose as a new sponsor of the QLD ALM Users group.

As sponsors of our user group they are kindly donating a Developer Small Business license for any one of the products listed below. This entitles a single developer to create applications for themselves or inside their organisation.  We’ll give away one license every three months to a lucky user group member. I’ll let you know which meetings will include this giveaway in the meeting notifications I send out.

Here’s a list of just some of their great products. Be sure to check them out if you’re in the market for libraries to help you work with these formats.

The winner of each license can choose from one of these items.

Our first giveaway is at our meeting this Friday, 7th August 2015. One lucky attendee will leave with an awesome license. I’ll leave it to the presenter, Richard, to figure out how he will pick the lucky winner.
