March 20th 2013 the Colombo Selenium Meetup, an open source forum where individuals of all skill levels can communicate, learn and network, was an unexpected success with around 80+ participants from various software firms gathering at 99X Technology formerly known as Eurocenter DCC.
Sahan Serasinghe – a trainee Software Engineer from 99X Technology presented on “Desktop Automation”. Talking about CUITe; an open source coded UI testing tool, Sahan said “It’s a brilliant testing tool, but it cannot perform desktop automation and sadly there are no updates for the tool from last year. Also a good automation includes desktop and web, which promoted us to create our own tool using the codedUI framework. Stay tuned with seshell.org for future updates.”
The participants were divided into groups and each group were asked to present their ideas and Selenium related topics. The session ended with refreshments and socializing.
Speaking to ReadMe, Sahan a student from IIT shared his experience as an intern saying “It’s a privilege to be an intern of 99X technology. The atmosphere and culture is unique, fun and an excellent learning environment. Indeed the best place to work. It would be a privilege for me to join full time at 99X.”
