In today’s world UI is a critical part of every application. And today’s apps run on a huge variety of browsers, devices, operating systems, form factors and screen resolutions.  In order to make sure that your app looks right and functions well on every platform, Visual Testing is key, and in order to make sure that you complete your tests on time automation is a must. 

In this session we will explain in depth what Visual Testing is, and how you can use Selenium along with other open source and commercial tools to perform automated Visual Testing and achieve a fully automated Continuous Delivery/Deployment process.

The session will include live demos showing common examples of visual bugs and how to find them using Selenium and Appium. We will show you how to integrate Selenium with various Visual Testing tools, and provide best practices for building a scalable and maintainable visual test automation suite.

    In this talk I will walk the audience step by step at building tests using the Page Object Design Pattern, making several attempts until we reach the current recommendation. We'll see the dos, don'ts, and common pitfalls.

    In this presentation I'll also cover the Page-Factory Design Pattern, and best practices for dealing with asynchronously and how to remove the deadly "random sleeps".
