Building a Test Automation Framework is easy - there are so many resources / guides / blogs / etc. available to help you get started and help solve the issues you get along the journey.

However, building a "good" Test Automation Framework is not very easy. There are a lot of principles and practices you need to use, in the right context, with a good set of skills required to make the Test Automation Framework maintainable, scalable and reusable.

Design Patterns play a big role in helping achieve this goal of building a good and robust framework. 

In this talk, we will talk about, and see examples of various types of patterns you can use for:

  1. Build your Test Automation Framework
  2. Test Data Management
  3. Locators / IDs (for finding / interacting with elements in the browser / app)

Using these patterns you will be able to build a good framework, that will help keep your tests running fast, and reliably in your CI / CD setup!

      We see two upcoming trends in the world of software delivery.

      1.Docker is becoming a standard for managing infrastructure using containers.

      2.Testing code and its infrastructure starts to grow at scale with more complexity, dependencies and technology diversity.

      A container is an entire portable runtime environment: an application, plus all its dependencies, libraries and other binaries, and configuration files needed to run it, bundled into one package. By containerizing the application platform and its dependencies ,all differences in OS distributions and underlying infrastructure are abstracted away which makes it easy to share and execute anywhere.

      At this talk we will learn how to leverage the container technology to solve the challenges of growing testing infrastructure and continuous delivery with key focus on below items.

      • Basics of the containers technology and specifically it’s application on the test automation. 
      • How Docker can reduce the time of test execution, ease the setup of clean test environments and drastically reduce the differences between the development, acceptance and production environments leading to the higher quality of the released software.
      • Examples to containerize entire testing stack together consisting of major automation tools (selenium, appium, phantomjs), performance tools (jmeter,gatling) with cucumber. 
      • Integrating and managing testing container with other application containers to achieve easily manageable continuous delivery pipeline.
      • Best practices and patterns for docker success.

      BigData with its slew of technologies and terms has been the most talked about area in last couple of years. This has evolved in Big Data Science, Analytics and now on the IoT and automation side. There is a need for testers and QA team to not only get used to this new age digital transformation area but at the same time embrace the technology to their own advantage. We have experimented and successfully used Big Data Technologies – Hadoop and MapReduce for a recent testing engagement. The actual application was implemented using classic technologies like CentOS and C++. Testing team implemented Hadoop and MapReduce to help in quick turnaround for the testing. We would like to showcase the entire case study on how the tools and technologies came in handy for a High Frequency Trading (HFT) application and had we not implemented the same what would we have missed. We would also share the entire CentOS/Hadoop/MapReduce VM with the participants. This would require the attendees to bring their own laptop with at least 4GB RAM (Available) so that they do some hands on exercises that we would like to share.

      Oculus Rift is a VR system. At the moment it is the market leader in this field. There are other contenders in the VR market such as Gear VR, Cardboard, HTC Vive, but this talk will concentrate on Oculus Rift. Although the testing principles discussed in this presentation will apply to testing in other VR systems.

       

      This talk will cover all the things I have learnt since beginning my testing with Oculus Rift.

      Using some of the topics I've talked about on my blog; I will collate these together to give a picture of my "story so far" with VR. Everything I have learnt and what more needs to happen.

      I will present different the different scenarios I have encountered and what they have taught me.
