  • You are new to GIT or using GIT but it scares... you often find it time-consuming or confusing when code conflicts happen while using Git especially when you commit a binary file Example: your TestData Excel sheet, test mobile app | apk.
  • Want to avoid the pains of investing huge time resolving the conflicts or thinking over like "oh! I committed to a wrong branch, how can I bring these commits in another?"
  • Don't like to enjoy remembering the GIT commands?

This workshop aims to get you quickly started (hands-on) with Git concepts from the scratch and then jump into the tips and tricks to prevent/resolve conflicts quicker way and how to make best out of it. We will start from basics and keep moving to the advanced level with real hands-on examples.

And all that we learn, we are going to remember easily. How? come, join and experience the easy GIT.


Will also work on few frequent typical mistakes which usually we do & tips on how to avoid them and save a lot of time.


Outline/Structure of the Workshop

Outline: Each step goes with by default, "Practise and doubts clarification"

Basics first

  • Why git, what is it and why should I care?
  • Creating & saving project using git (will use Github)
  • Working with branches
  • Understanding commits, diff, stash & merge
  • Using Repositories: clone, fork
  • Pull Request

More Important usage

  • 'Wh' questions on commit: Git log
  • Reset/moving back to older commit
  • Rebase
  • Rebase vs Merge, when to use which

Bonus understanding

  • How GIT is different from other version controls
  • Best practises

Real-time problems and resolution

We pick a bunch of real work challenges from Attendees and we together solve them on the spot. Attendees are requested to fill this form prior so that we could simulate those problems in the source code to better debugging and analysis to help you understand how to approach it the nicer way.

Learning Outcome

Deep dive into making use of GIT from the scratch and when you leave, you would be able to start contributing to not only your projects, save time by preventing lots of commons problems and get better at getting pull requests accepted in other open source projects like Selenium too. Want to be a committer, here is another wonderful workshop by the one and only Simon Stewart

      How can you use robots to help you test?

      Meet Tappy McTapFace, Tappy is a robot that was built during a 2 day hackathon to help demonstrate how robots could be used to automate testing on mobile apps. It's made out of 3D printable parts, based on Taptser 2.0 open source designs and can be programmed in javascript. Initially designed by the founder of Selenium.

      Just because you can automate this testing does it mean you should?

      We will also go through a visual based risk board to help answer this question.

      Pooja Shah / Akshay Goel - UnitTests for ultimate speeding Test feedback - hands-on workshop

      - Are you struggling to convince your dev team to adapt right Test Pyramid? And are able to evaluate the reasoning behind not doing it?

      - Are you new to unit testing? TDD looks like a buzz word?

      - Does it look like only for developers? If yes then we must meet, I have very interesting queries for you. One of them: Have you considered the value addition it has when a tester knows Unit Testing as well?

      - Do you feel like you know the syntax, but would like to understand new idioms and where to use them?

      - Want to learn and make the career doing full-time test automation called SDET?

      Instead of just covering the syntax, we will introduce most of the UnitTests using nose/TestNg as we build code together.
