Testing Tools Panel at PyCon plus some Sahi

For those attending PyCon this year and interested in testing, there's the Testing Tools Panel. The panel is being moderated by Grig Gheorghiu, who's done a great job of getting a nice mixture of people with different takes on testing and was nice enough to invite me to participate. The panel info page also has an invitation for people to add their own questions, so feel free to contribute.

While on the subject of testing, a coworker of mine introduced me to Sahi recently. Sahi is a Selenium-like system for in-browser testing. It seems to have at least one advantage over Selenium: the tests are written in (a slightly preprocessed) JavaScript, but isn't quite as well-known yet. The site has a screencast which is a pretty good into to the system.
