Sergiusz Golec for his experiences on the pattern AUTOMATE WHAT'S NEEDED and a suggestion in GOOD DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

Seretta and Dot would like to thank the EuroSTAR Conferences Team for hosting this wiki, and in particular all the work done by Cathal O'hEidhin to transfer this wiki from the now defunct

Vincent Wijnen for his experiences on the pattern AUTOMATE GOOD TESTS and a hint to an important problem in WHOLE TEAM APPROACH

Lars Nordin for comments on several patterns, (CAPTURE-REPLAY, OBJECT MAP and INTERDEPENDENT TEST CASES)

James Tony for a lot of useful ideas for different patterns or issues

Freddy Vega for adding his experience to the pattern OBJECT MAP

The test team at BREDEX and in particular Alexandra Schladebeck for suggesting the pattern VERIFY-ACT-VERIFY

Martin Gijsen for successfully doing some bug-hunting in the wiki, and for a possible clickable mind map option.

Jon Hagar and Jerry Durant for comments about the patterns in general.

Gerrard Meszaros, author of "xUnit Test Patterns: Refactoring Test Code" (see References) for Discussions and Challenges about the format of what we are calling patterns, but he thinks would be better referred to as practices.

At our first workshop at Belgium Testing Days, 28th Feb 2013:
Lisa Crispin says: "I've had a quick look and am excited about this"
And she also requests that we refer to "test code" and "production code". (Good idea - thanks.)
