I just listened to a podcast where Željko Filipin talks with Bret Pettichord about Watir. This is an easy to listen to and informative podcast about Watir. I really admire and appreciate Bret’s openness about Watir as he talks about both the good and the bad. If you have 23 minutes give it a listen.

What is Pex?
“Pex (Program EXploration) is a white-box test generation tool. Given a hand-written parameterized unit test, Pex analyzes the code to determine relevant test inputs fully automatically. The result is a traditional unit test suite with high code coverage. In addition, Pex suggests to the programmer how to fix bugs.”
I haven’t had a chance to dive in but I’m pretty excited to see how this can speed up production of writing white box tests and/or increase the code coverage on QA’s side.
At the end of the day it’d be nice to see this in the developers’ hands and not mine. Baby steps though…
