Building an appium driver to automate custom built hardware

location_city Online schedule Sep 17th 04:30 - 04:50 PM IST place Zoom people 111 Interested

With version 2.0 appium aims to transition from being a server which bundles many drivers to one which by default doesn't bundle any drivers, and instead provides an interface for retrieving and using drivers. 

The main goal being: a more accessible and easy way to write new custom drivers.

But how useful would a custom appium driver really be? What are its possible use cases? And is it worth the development effort?

During the talk I want to highlight the capabilities and possible use cases of appium 2.0 by giving a walkthrough of how we at headspin satisfied a business requirement by creating a custom appium driver for a custom piece of hardware.
