Top 5 Open Source Testing Tools
Jim McLean, Test Lead at Edge Testing
When compiling a top 5 list the biggest difficulty is whittling down the large list of testing tools available under open source licence. So, forgive me if I have not included your favourite. Also bear in mind that I have only included open source tools. There is also a large selection of tools that are free to use but are not released under open source licensing. Free does not mean it is open source.

He was the forefather of many of the techniques still used in today’s racing dinghies and a pioneer and innovator. So what, you may ask, has Paul Elvstrom to do with the high tech world of today.

Testing behind closed doors – 'when' is as important as 'what'
Rich Mort, New Business Director - Edge Testing
My Dad was an airline pilot during the golden years of commercial travel. He flew a Super VC 10, a rugged airliner designed to cope with short, dusty African runways. Its undercarriage was tough, really tough, designed to work like the claws of a bird of prey, once it gripped the tarmac that was it!

Why You Don't Need to be Technical to be a Test Analyst
Gillian Galloway and Cecile Robb - Test Analysts, Edge Testing
