Plone Awards 2013
Congratulations to Asko Soukka!
Asko Soukka is a software designer at University of Jyväskylä, FInland. He delivered the power of Robot Framework testing to Plone. This was not only good for tests. No, as added bonus, we can get automated, annotated screenshots for our documentation. And, just to put a whole lot of cherries on that cake, it allows to test against the most common accessibility errors. Robot Framework testing with plone.app.robotframework has the potential to radically change the way in which we can test (and document) Plone add-ons.
Asko won a credit of $1,500 USD on Amazon Web Services.
