The Sauce Labs team, http://saucelabs.com/about/team, is hosting two free tutorial open space sessions at Pycon in Atlanta.
In the short session, people bringing their laptops should be able to record a web session in their browser, convert the recorded activity to a Python script, modify the script to accept a number of inputs , and replay the script locally on their laptops. Once you've learned how to fully automate your own browser, submit the same script to the Sauce Labs cloud to run the tests in parallel across multiple browsers and operating systems, and view the results with instant video playback.
The tutorials should be of interest to web developers wanting fast, cross-browser testing and it should be of general interest to anyone wanting to use Python to automate browser sessions.
The tutorials are being led by Jason Huggins, the creator of Selenium (an open source web app testing tool http://seleniumhq.org/ ). Several familiar names from the Python community will also be on-hand: http://saucelabs.com/about/news/feb-03-2010
