Announcements, a catch up and watch this space!

Firstly, I must start this entry with an apology for being away from the blog during the last few weeks... It's been a busy period over here at nFocus, especially during the last few weeks, but I am glad to be back, and writing.

Secondly, I need to thank all of our visitors for taking the time out to read our articles over the past few months. It makes me proud to announce that in the short time the blog has been online, we have achieved over a 1000 visits, and our last article, 'Automated Functional Testing Tools, QTP vs Selenium,' was our most popular article so far!

I am also proud to announce that the blog has been entered for this years Computer Weekly IT Blog Awards for the Corporate SME catergory, so thank you for nominating us, and I will do my best to keep you updated with how this goes.

So enough of the announcements, let's get to the main event. My entry today is to introduce an absolutely brilliant article written by a colleague of mine here at nFocus; Marc Maurhofer. Before the article is posted, I thought I would include Marc's short bio, in his own words:

"I have been a software tester for over 10 years, and learnt a long time ago that the only way not to drown in a sea of regression is to automate as much as possible, using a good test framework. I do not like the idea of creating automated regression packs after the product has gone live, but instead prefer to automate as you go along. When your overnight run takes longer than 12 hours, it is time to get another test rig."

The practical walkthough is titled, "Using Non-Functional Test Tools with Axe and WatiN," and we will publish it here within the next week.

So all this leaves me to say is, I hope you find his article useful and please feel free to make Marc feel welcome with plenty of comments after his article : )
