How I trouble shoot test fails on Appium tests

How your Appium tests working? Are they working well as you expect? If no, you've probably come to a right place! 


As some of you might know, E2E tests can be flaky. When an Appium test fails, most of the cases you'll start an investigation by checking an Appium log. For those who just started testing with Appium, an Appium log looks like a mass of string. This can be sometimes a barrier to continue E2E tests with Appium.


In this session, firstly I'll cover what Appium log consists of and some basic techniques how to investigate Appium tests with Appium log. Then, I'll share you where to find possible solutions/workarounds. In the end, I'll shed light upon one of the well known troubles on Appium testing and how to avoid the trouble.
