An Illustrated History of Failure, Paul Fenwick
The average individual is given little scope for failure, at least not the type
that really matters.  The opportunity for catastrophic failure, that influences
nations or continents, has been traditionally reserved for royalty, parliament,
and others in a position of great leadership.

However in recent times we have developed a profession who have the opportunity
to fail like never before.   A profession that can make mistakes that are so
monumental, so wide-reaching, and so costly they can shake civilization to its
very core. This elite group, rarely seen by every day society, are the
foundation upon which modern society depends.  The few, the proud, the System

Join us for a voyage of discovery, as we travel back through history to some of
the most monumental failures the world has ever seen.

Introduction to Selenium, Simon Hildebrandt
Selenium is an open source test automation tool for testing web applications.
It runs tests directly in a browser - just like your users do!  It can use IE,
Mozilla and Firefox on Windows, Linux and Macintosh.  With the Firefox plugin
creating tests is as easy and clicking and selecting text.  However these tests
can be compiled into a format that works with Java, .NET, Perl, Python and Ruby!

Simon will give a whirl-wind tour of Selenium and how much easier it can make
your web applications testing.

Please invite your friends, family and colleagues along to attend!

All the very best,
