Description: Marionette is a new tool to drive automation in any Gecko-based application. Right now, it works in Firefox and B2G. 

Marionette allows you to *remotely* drive the UI as well as drive the internal JS, so you can fiddle with the chrome and content space of your running application. If you have Marionette running in your app, you can connect to it from any machine and send commands to it remotely, allowing you to not only write automated tests, but also to debug and test things out on the fly. The fact that it runs with remote commands allows you to coordinate actions outside of the test environment, allowing for very robust tests.

I'll be giving you a rundown of how Marionette works, how it's being used and how you can use it to drive your application.
Does anyone need to be assigned to this to make this happen, or is everything going to just work out? I'm not sure what to expect.

Thanks Patrick,

I was reading some other Brown Bag emails, and they post urls to the talk ahead of schedule. Do you know what the video link for this talk will be so that people can watch it after it goes live?
