Hands-on workshop on setting up, writing and running your first automated test - strictly for non-developers!

My experience with test automation in different projects has taught me that it is easy to automate tests; it is dealing with people and organizations that is the most challenging. In this workshop, strictly for non-developers, we will focus on the easy bit; we will set up and run our first automated test today, using open-source software.

My goal is that by the end of the day you have run your first automated test, and when you get back to work you can easily tweak the test to log on and check the application you work with every day. Please bring a friend (you will mostly work in pairs), a windows 7 laptop and some patience, so we can get started.
