Episode 25: Espresso

Tor and Chet are joined by Thomas Knych and Valera Zakharov from the Espresso team at Google. This episode is all about testing. We talk about how Espresso works, how Espresso came to be, how to use Espresso, and lots of other information about Espresso. And UI testing in general.
