[.NET@noon] Automated Testing Made Easy with SpecFlow on Oct 16th, 2014 presented and hosted by ITA Group

Tags: .NET at Noon, Unit Testing, ITA Group, SpecFlow

At ITA Group we take testing our systems to heart. Come learn about how we utilize SpecFlow, an all encompassing testing tool, to test all the layers of our systems. We will cover how to get started with basic unit testing and progress into UI and integration testing. Our approach can be used by developers, QAs, and BAs to help drive acceptance of system features. If you're interested in learning how to get started with testing and the benefits it brings, you won't want to miss this session!

Our Tech Stack

We’re primarily a Microsoft shop here at ITA Group, so we’re spending most of our time writing in C# MVC, using Entity Framework and Nhibernate to access our SQL Server backend. Sprinkle in some Knockout.JS and a few other JavaScript libraries to make rich user interfaces, and that’s ITA Group in a nutshell. We’re all about using the right tool for the job. And we’re continuing to learn and improve every day. Our team is scary smart. Some of the best talent I’ve seen. We challenge each other—that’s what makes us so good. We poke a little fun here and there. It’s a cool, fast-paced, agile development environment! We’re saving your seat.

Our business is tough to explain, so here it goes.

We give companies a competitive edge. Not through products, but people. We get people excited, motivated and engaged. We help them love what they do. And the companies they do it for. ITA Group plans and executes amazing meetings, events and group travel experiences. We design really smart incentives and recognition programs that inspire people to do their best. And be rewarded for it. It’s pretty cool, really. You’d be amazed what happens when people truly understand their company’s goals—and how their performance matters in meeting them. And when people are motivated to step up and own their performance? Look out!
