A Smattering of Selenium #89

Figured I would get this out before the computer goes in for surgery.

  • Automate Page Load Performance Testing with Firebug and Selenium is not a new topic, but a timely one for me
  • Speed up your features with a backdoor login route is not a recent post, but something I’ve had to explain to people at least once a week for the past month, so…
  • RSpec’s New Expectation Syntax explains not only the ‘what’ of the new syntax but the ‘why’
  • Slides & Videos from LDNSE #6 does not falsely advertise itself
  • Python Timer Class – Context Manager for Timing Code Blocks reminds me that I need to use Context Managers more often
  • Overloading Python list comprehension is an interesting little experiment. Well, depending on your definition of interesting I suppose
  • I posted the about how Python creates classes last week, and going through the queue of things I have to post came across Python object creation sequence from the same blog
  • Visual Studio 11 Fakes Part 1 – Stubs discussed the Fakes framework which appears to ship in VS11. Stubs. Are. Awesome. Oh, and it took too much work to find it, but Visual Studio Fakes Part 2 – Shims is the follow-up. Actually, if you are VS all day there are a bunch of neat things on that blog.
  • I don’t own a copy, but The Grumpy Programmer’s Guide To Building Testable PHP Applications but the section breakdown seems like it would be correct.
  • Test on Real Mobile Devices Without Breaking the Bank has some food for thought. And its own quirky definition of ‘bank’. Especially given that the half-life of a mobile OS is something like 7 months it seems.
