You always wanted to start Mobile app Automation using Appium but did not know where and what to start with? Or started but got stuck among understanding capabilities, locating elements, finding whats wrong and your daily work deadlines? Yeah, we all have been there. Hence here is this workshop, precisely designed for beginners to quickly get started with Appium in NodeJS.

At this workshop, you will learn everything from the scratch step by step. We will together understand the key concepts, apply them right there and write our “first test” in appium before we learn more nitty-gritties as takeaway for you to go and implement at your actual work directly.
Think of this as a one-day crash course in Appium. The course will be prepared in NodeJS but there will be help for those who want to get started in Java.


Outline/Structure of the Workshop

  • Overview
    • Introduction to Appium
    • What all can be tested with Appium?

    • Install and Launch Native Apps with Appium script
    • Desired Capabilities for Appium (Android/iOS)
    • Open app with required capabilities for Android and iOS
  • How to write tests fast

    • Identifying UI Elements
    • Appium Inspector in Appium Desktop app
    • Various Android and iOS locator strategies
    • Chaining of Elements
  • How to Execute tests

    • Run test on iOS Simulator and Real device
    • Run a test in the cloud
  • Practical Tips

    • Dos & Don'ts
    • Q & A

Learning Outcome

  • Will be able to get started to automate tests with Appium in Node JS

    Appium hit the open source stage almost 7 years ago and has gone through many iterations of development since then. In this talk, we'll look at how Appium continues to grow, and how the Appium devs are working to ensure Appium's relevance for the future.

    The world of testing is rapidly changing. It's not just about functional correctness anymore: UX testing, performance testing, visual testing, and no doubt several other kinds of testing have descended upon us. Tools and methodologies have also proliferated—image analysis, AI, and other new terms give us pause. What will testing even be like in 5 years?

    I don't know the future, but I know that Appium's philosophy and development methodology are well-suited to ensuring Appium adapts to whatever the testing ecosystem becomes, and I'll give examples both of how Appium itself is evolving to take advantage of new technologies, as well as how Appium's own ecosystem is growing (through a proliferation of Appium-related vendors and products). And of course, we'll save a bit of time for something … interesting.

    Don’t worry, the Terminator is not coming for you or your job. But you might need a Terminator someday to test your mobile app. Desktop and web development happen in a relatively constrained environment: keyboard and mouse for input, video for output — easy to virtualize and test anywhere, locally, or in the cloud. However, with mobile apps, running tests in a simulator can sometimes be hard or impossible. There are more parts involved (e.g. touchscreen, physical buttons, camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc.) and the possible interactions can complicate a team’s ability to automate end-to-end test scenarios (e.g. receiving a call or text, taking a photo, controlling a Bluetooth device, making an NFC payment, etc.). In those hard-to-automate situations, a robotic device that can emulate human interaction can be a good option.

    In this talk, we’ll go into more detail on why teams might want to make their own robotic mechanisms, and how they can do it without “terminating” their budget or schedule.

    Case Study

    I have been a functional exploratory tester. I was motivated to move out of exploratory testing and go into automation. Thankfully, someone pulled me aside and told me - I am more suited to be a functional exploratory tester and I am business savvy. I didn't shy away from code. I worked closely with developers, my testing approach involved reading code (didn't write any) and brought in value to developers and to the business. I grew up as a tester being coached by experts, reading blogs from experts and learning that automation will help exploratory testers do more.

    In my wait - I found very little effort that has gone in direction. I partnered with developers to be building some products.

    I failed multiple times but here are my failed attempts

    1. Tool for Social Media Driven Testing for Testers
    2. Tool for mapping the heuristics and oracles to test ideas
    3. A checklist tool for testing mobile apps and scoring on quality for start-ups

    I would like to share
    - The thinking behind building these tools and their value
    - How purely focusing only on automation is taking away the possibility of building tools
    - How I would love the community to start building tools
    - How I can help and how they can help me

    Manoj Kumar / Diego Molina - Appium at Scale - Mobile Grid workshop

    480 Mins

    Selenium Grid can be a bit daunting to get up and running. Starting it is quite easy, but using it effectively can require pulling in third-party tools. In this workshop we’ll cover how to run your grid effectively, using best practices culled from several large grid installations with a hybrid setup for both Selenium and Appium tests.
