Christian's Expertise Allows Sauce Labs to Further Unify Test Automation in the Cloud

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) - Sauce Labs (www.saucelabs.com), the Selenium Company, today announced the addition of Adam Christian, co-creator of the Windmill Test Framework, to the Sauce Labs engineering team. Both Selenium and Windmill are open source tools for cross-browser functional testing.

Christian co-created the Windmill Test Framework in 2007, as a QA developer at the Open Source Applications Foundation, to make test writing easier, portable and sustainable. Prior to joining Sauce Labs, Christian worked as an automation architect and Web developer at Slide, a publisher of social entertainment applications. Before Slide, Christian consulted at Mozilla where he co-authored the Mozmill testing extension for Firefox automation.

"After spending four years dedicated to functional testing, I appreciate Sauce Labs' commitment to making the benefits of cloud based cross-browser testing widely available," said Adam Christian, Software Engineer at Sauce Labs. "I'm excited to have the chance to leverage my experience with Windmill to enhance and complement the future development of Sauce Labs' products and services."

Christian will develop solutions that enable Windmill users to run tests in the Sauce OnDemand cloud. Additionally, he will further explore automation testing for Flash and Flex.

"Collaboration between Selenium and Windmill benefits everyone and advances testing in general," said Jason Huggins, Executive Software Chef at Sauce Labs and creator of Selenium. "We're very excited to have Adam join the Sauce Labs team as we bring cloud based testing to a wider audience."
