Episode 2 – Flex Automated Testing and FlexMonkey

In this episode we interview Stu Stern of Gorilla Logic.  Stu and Gorilla Logic recently launched FlexMonkey, a record / playback testing tool for Flex applications.  Stu discusses the in-and-outs of FlexMonkey, and how it differs from other Flex testing tools.  In addition, Stu dialogs with us on the conceptual and religious aspects of software testing.

BTW: We continue to learn more about the video making process. The sound and light is better in this episode but we did forget to turn off our cell phones which causes that annoying occasional noise. Bare with us as we continue to improve the quality and substance of these videos.

BTW2: You will notice that in this video we reference “Scotch Talk” which was what we planned on calling this before we came up with the “Drunk on Software” name.
