In an effort to improve the way that he's writing web applications, Felix Geisendörfer has looked around him and found some good tools to "help him on his way to agility" in his programming. In this new post, he recounts some of his findings so far.
So I've decided that, over the course of the next couple days (or weeks), I'll dedicate quite a bit of my time to explore ways to improve the way I write web applications. This includes getting into unit/integration testing, automating workflows, and also adopting better coding techniques.
He covers four software packages that he's found so far to help achieve this goal:
- Apache Ant
- SimpleTest for PHP
- Selenium Remote Control
- Selenium IDE
For each of the software in the list, he talks about what kinds of features they offer and how that relates back to his goal. There are also links to downloads and documentation for each of them for further reading.
