Yep - functional testing of GUI apps is a big topic and one that doesn't
get discussed often enough.
Comparison of different mocking frameworks would be nice.
Testing techniques like dependency injection.
How to get started with test driven development.
A build process that includes test automation.
Setting up continuous integration.
Tackling the problems of long running test suites.
Setting up a development environment that includes testing sounds like
an ideal way to start.
