      Page-Object pattern is very commonly used when implementing Automation frameworks. However, as the scale of the framework grows, there is a limitation on how much reusability really happens. It inherently becomes very difficult to separate the test intent from the business domain.

      I want to talk about this problem, and the solution I have been using - Business Layer - Page - Object pattern, which has helped me keep my code DRY.

      Many challenging aspects need to be considered when running your Selenium test suite on real mobile browsers: choosing the right Selenium library, emulators vs. real devices, 24x7 local device infrastructure availability, unsupported features, pop-ups, etc. Do the benefits outweigh the effort?

      We first talk about how to test effectively on mobile browsers using Selenium. The problems we have faced with mobile emulators, and why we are scrapping them in favour of a real mobile devices cloud of Selenium nodes. Then this is followed by a demo on how to execute your tests on iOS and Android devices. Learn how to set up a real mobile devices cloud from scratch; when we will also discuss how to run health checks for your cloud, and troubleshoot properly.

      Our expertise comes from building a real iOS and Android device cloud for our customers, looking to get accurate results from testing - something to be had only from actual devices and not just emulators.

      Case Study
      Intermediate

      Our project was a classic example of Selenium gone wild! As our team embraced the test automation journey, we went crazy and implemented tons of Selenium tests, one for every permutation possible. Soon we realized our feedback cycles were delayed. Our builds were taking hours instead of minutes. And we had a set of complex, fragile tests, which resulted in a lot of false-negative scenarios and finger pointing.

      At this point, our team had realized that this is not the path forward. We decided to seriously look at our Selenium tests. We pretty much moved 80% of our Se tests to lower-layers (non-GUI based) tests. And now we have the right testing pyramid on our project.

      Join us, as we explain our journey (strategy, techniques, tools, mindset-change and approaches we took) through this transition.

      There is so much valuable data that Selenium Nodes writes into log file(s) when tests get executed on them. So much of this data is not mined for actionable intelligence.

      In this session, we will show you how operating system level metrics can be combined with data from Selenium nodes to result in rich actionable intelligence that will tremendously aid in the analysis of test failures, react to test execution flakiness, and to improve your automated test resiliency.

      It's pretty cool to have selenium test results clear to everyone on the team. There are lots of frameworks in every language that aim to simplify test writing. But only few can provide sharp presentation of test execution output. Yandex team is working on Allure (https://github.com/allure-framework/allure-core/wiki) - an open-source framework designed to create crystal clear reports. Because of module structure it integrates easily with almost any testing tool, no matter which language you use. In my talk i will describe the basic principles and show how to integrate Allure reporting in your existing projects.

      Selenium tests can quickly grow in size and could become difficult to maintain, unless adhered to DRY principles to the extreme. Geb is built on top of Selenium WebDriver, which brings in the expressive power of groovy to WebDriver API. Geb can be used for all browser automation tasks that can be achieved with WebDriver. This talk will show how Geb can help us to write concise tests that are highly readable. 

      Prior knowledge of Groovy is NOT essential to get started with Geb, however would be helpful in advanced use cases.

      Microsoft. Just the name of the company alone can send some open-source software activists into fits of apoplexy. From the days when executives of the company compared open-source software to "a virus", the company has been seen as incredibly hostile to open-source software. It is surprising how much has changed over the years.

      This is the story of how the Selenium project has managed its relationship with the software company, from the initial, tentative, often contentious and borderline hostile reaching out, to today's open engagement. The story is told through the prism of the Internet Explorer Driver project, with slight digressions to the .NET bindings and other Microsoft technology stacks. The journey is funny, sometimes frustrating, but always entertaining, and there may be a surprise announcement or two.

      What if you can get best of both outsourced/crowd sourced and most advanced selenium technology? There has been lots of improvement in the world of testing from rather independent directions. While selenium community has been doing extremely well at improving the automation technology, there are hundreds of thousands of testers doing testing through crowd sourced testing or outsourced testing.

      What if we can seamlessly combine both selenium technology with the crowd sourced testing. While selenium recorders are good at repeating the mundane tasks, they are terrible at ignoring harmless ui changes, crowd sourced testers can compensate the dumbness of recorders, pdiff can indeed detect the changes what even humans can miss. If we combine these three while advancing selenium technology, ui testing can be taken to the next stage.

      If we can advance selenium recorders and make it a handy tool for testers, we can improve the efficiency and decrease the costs to significant extent.

      How do you user Selenium to test non-HTML UI components? By integrating Sikuli with Selenium we were able to solve this problem. In this demo, we would like to share our experience in increasing the automation scope to include non-HTML UI components with the help of Sikuli.

      Typically learning new tools to increase automation coverage is a challenge for Selenium users. Especially if those screens or components are not in the scope of Selenium locators (e.g. Non-HTML UI, Native Windows, Desktop Apps, SVG components etc.) Integration with Sikuli makes Selenium automation comprehensive. Sikuli complements Selenium capabilities, and integrates with Selenium seamlessly.

      We have empowered Selenium to identify non-HTML UI by extending Selenium locators (by.xpath, by.CSS) to identify the components with "by.image."

      Intermediate

      We heard enough about Data-driven Testing, Business-driven development, and Test-driven development… The new buzzword in town is going to be ADT. So many tools and frameworks for regression test and cross-browser test automation give you pass/fail type results. However, for you to improve your web application’s software quality over time you need rich Analytics and Actionable Intelligence from your test automation framework or tool.

       In this session, we will show you how rich a number of reports generated within an automation framework or tool can help you compare your software’s performance in tests carried out across different browsers, software versions and at different points in time. 

      For example, you can drill down to a specific step where your test failed and look back to previous test runs to see when was the first time this step failed and if it failed when the same test was run against other browsers or previous versions of your software.

      Scaling your Selenium setup will throw up unique challenges; from writing tests for local browsers, to running them in parallel on a cloud infrastructure. We have experienced the whole gamut: failing tests, timeouts, integration with CI tools, slow test execution, mobile emulators and much more.

      In this talk, we explore the obstacles every developer will face, and ways to overcome them effectively. We will be touching on: creating persistent connections with keep alive, system optimization techniques, scaling on the cloud, mobile devices and choosing the right setup from the start.  

      Our experience comes from getting over a 1000 customers to run their Selenium tests successfully, and observing Selenium users of all scales and at different levels.

      This is an experiment which I’m running in my current project. We already using BDD heavily but we are seeing some gaps. What we are missing is the visualization part. This is the work done by the visual designer and UX-er between writing the specs and creating the tests. For bridging this gap we are combining storyboarding, the deliverable done by VD and UX, with an BDD tool. The storyboard is a translation of the specs into visualized test cases. The BDD tool is used to validate them against the real app.

      iPhone 3g, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5s, Samsung Galaxy, Samsung Galaxy Note, IE, Chrome, Firefox etc... Can you automate layout testing for these with one test?
      At eBay we had to refine our strategy for responsive design implementation. As part of that we wanted to build a stable automated test set that would cover layout testing on multiple screen resolutions. Now whenever there is a small change to a CSS that breaks the design on some specific resolutions - we notice it right away. Do you also have to test your website on different devices? Would you like to automate that and save time? It's easy as 1, 2, 3: write your Selenium test (with a bit of magic of Galen), include it in your continuous integration environment (e.g. Jenkins), get feedback with detailed reports.
      In this presentation we would like to show you how to build a stable solution for testing responsive layout with an open sourced tool Galen Framework. We'll introduce you to Test Driven Development for Responsive Design. We'll show you how to execute tests in Selenium Grid to cover the browser compatibility testing and how we adapted the responsive layout testing at eBay.

      Ever been frustrated by slow, unreliable Selenium tests that won't work in all browsers? Chances are you're doing it wrong.

      Selenium is an excellent tool, but as all tools, should only be used for the right purpose.

      In this talk I want to walk the audience through current approaches, frameworks, tools and the advantages or using Javascript Unit Tests to get extensive client-side coverage, reliable and millisecond-speed results.

      Leverage client-side unit testing as a complement to a more focussed and stable set of functional Selenium tests. Use the power of Sauce Labs' Javascript API to run these across all browsers with very little effort.

      Web and mobile UI testing has never been so simple. All the tools that you need to create a solid maintainable app are at your fingertips. Big and small companies are already using it heavily to provide their users the best possible experience. The new kid on the block is the Appium project, which recently turned into version 1.0. It opens the gates to serious mobile testing automation for which many developers and companies were waiting for.During this talk I will tell you why Appium - a completely free open source project - was created and what are its connotations with Selenium. Importance of mobile testing is not something you can neglect anymore. With a wide range of technologies (such as hybrid, web, native), which can be used to create a mobile user experience, comes a great challenge for automation tools developers.
       
      If you're serious about your mobile software you have to do continuous integration for it.  I'll show how easy it is to set it up and run an example test with only few lines of code.
       
      Furthermore, I'll show you some experimental applications of this technology that is being currently researched and that might shape the near future.
