Find a bug in the Weekend Testing web-site and write a failing Watir test for that bug.
There are 4 learning objectives:

  • Learning the structure of the Weekend Testing pages through the use of Firebug
  • Improve our Watir syntax using the Watir google group
  • Find out which bugs lend themselves to being recorded in an automated test
  • Shed some light on the utility of writing failing tests for a bug that's been found. Is it a useful way to record what happened or is there too much overhead involved? I've heard both sides and would like to investigate this for myself.
