Learning to use slim instead of fit to run FitNesse
In our new project, we've decided to use FitNesse with slilm. All in all, slim is an improvement over fit. The thing I like most is the error messages when running tests. These are now much clearer than with fit. The fixtures are now plain old objects (that's poo -- you can call them pojo, poco or even pono for all I care). So no dependency anymore on fit.

How to set up a FitNesse server
What is FitNesse? Fitnesse is a tool that, if used wisely (big assumption), can turn requirements into functional tests. Examples can elaborate requirements. Examples can become tests.
