Functional testing tools workshop just before Agile 2008

Agile Alliance Functional Testing Tools Open Space Workshop
Call for Participation

Dates: Monday, August 4, 2008
Times: 8 AM - 6 PM
Location: Toronto, Ontario, at the Agile2008 venue


This is the second Agile Alliance Functional Testing Tools workshop.
The first, held in October 2007 in Portland Oregon, was a great
success. In this second workshop, we're increasing the size and
moving to an open space like format. The primary purpose of this
workshop is still to discuss cutting-edge advancements in and envision
possibilities for the future of automated functional testing tools.

As an open-space style workshop, the content comes from the
participants, and we expect all participants to take an active role.
We're seeking participants who have interest and experience in
creating and/or using automated functional testing tools/frameworks on
Agile projects.

This workshop is sponsored by the Agile Alliance Functional Testing
Tools Program. The mission of this program is to advance the state of
the art of automated functional testing tools used by Agile teams to
automate customer-facing tests.

There is no cost to participate. Participants will be responsible for
their own travel expenses.

Due to room constraints, we can accommodate up to 60 participants.
Registrations will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis to
participants who complete the registration process.
