Prototyping, fighting layout bugs, and model-based testing

Recently, I’ve ran into a few interesting talks related to testing. In this first talk, Steven Dow talks about some early studies on how prototyping has an effect on the performance of the end result. As you’ll see in the Q&A, people are hungry to know more about how we can structure tests for our ideas.


Next, Michael Tamm presents “Fighting Layout Bugs”, a library to detect layout bugs. This is something that will save a lot of time and prevent many layout bugs by bringing an unprecedented level of automation to testing page rendering. This is something to keep an eye on.


Let’s talk about model-based testingMark Utting gives an introduction.

Then, Atif Memon discusses applying model-based testing to web applications.

Finally, Darko Marinov talks about test selection when conducting model-based testing.
