I'm the only software engineer in a 40 person organization, and we work with various contractors to write our RoR site. (I'm mostly a python programmer, so have limited experience in this space)
We are running up against the limits of manual testing. We have unit tests, but there are a lot of things that can't be tested easily that way. Other than that, we're basically having people manually test all use-cases, and that's just not sustainable. We have no explicit QA people.
What are the best practices/tools (Tools most importantly) for automating testing?
