      Hi Mohit,

      I haven't decided fully yet, but probably Sauce Labs since that is the one I am most familiar with. We will only work on this if we have time leftover. If we do, then we will all create trial accounts to run the tests. It takes a very short time to do so. Thanks.

    Hey Justin,

    Is the workshop going to be RUBY heavy? Although I u'stand it's more of Appium tool learning. But then I also don't wanna get lost in the session b'coz of Ruby. Also would be nice if you cover a bit of iOS.

    Thanks,

      Hi Ruchiika,

      Thank you for your comments. Appium (and with selenium) support many different languages so we had to settle on one which is ruby. The workshop wont be really leaning about ruby but how to automate a mobile app with Appium using ruby. You should be able to take away concepts from the workshop and apply them to your language of choice, however. We also had to settle on just Android since not everyone will have a Mac to automate iOS but android works for both Windows and Mac. Thanks.

      Hi Naresh,

       

      Sure, we will probably have a Q&A as the session goes. It's for 8 hours so depending on the topic we can stop to discuss about it at various points. The workshop will primarily focus on getting started with appium and setting up your own mobile device grid for android. I'm not planning to discuss the problems with mobile testing but I'd be happy to discuss them with individuals one on one. I hope this helps answer your questions. Thank you.

    In modern times we have many different cloud testing services to choose from. These cloud services are useful and help reduce the burden of building and maintaining your own Selenium Grid environment. However, there are many scenarios in which you need your tests running locally, such you work for a government (or agency) and cannot expose your data to the cloud, or the service costs are too expensive to run all tests on every commit.

    This presentation will feature getting started with setting up your own mobile device grid. Running your tests in parallel and distributed, capturing critical report data (logs, screenshots, and video), and leveraging cloud test services (such as SauceLabs). I will also talk about the challenges and lessons I learned along the way.

    This small talk is about the intricate fabric of discussion between an interviewer and an interviewee for the post of Automation Engineer.

    The audience would be taken through a maze of silly, run of the mill, subjective, bizarre and occasionally brilliant questions/answers/discussions found in an average interview for Automation Engineer/Selenium Engineer. 

    We'll try to look at the 4 quadrants of the Selenium Interview circle, covering it from the perspectives of :

    1. The Interviewer
    2. The Interviewee
    3. Current Industry state
    4. How can we improve?

    This might seem like a soft, non-technical, not-so-important topic of discussion but we must remember that bad interviews lead to bad candidates lead to bad deliverables. As they say, For want of a nail the battle was lost. 

    And in today's cut-throat world none of us can afford losing a good candidate to a bad interview.

    Lets gather around a fire of questions, on the beach of answers to surgically comprehend the What, How and Why of Selenium Interviews.

    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.

    Teams already building 1000s of tests of various types - UI, web service-based, integration, unit, etc. is a proof of that.

    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.

    In this talk, we will focus on one of the critical aspects and patterns in building the Test Automation framework - Test Data!

    We will look at different data patterns as options and techniques how to create, manage, use, reuse Test Data in a way to keep the tests running in an reliable and deterministic way. We will also discuss what questions to ask, what things to think about in selecting your approach for Test Data!

    This discussion will be applicable for any type of Test Automation (web / mobile / desktop), but, we will focus primarily on UI automation frameworks, ex. using Selenium.

    One of the painful problems in Selenium automated testing is determining whether a HTML page has been loaded. This is especially the case when web application uses a JS  heavy framework such as the popular AngularJS.

    During this talk we will discuss how to handle Selenium Page Object pattern better with Loadable Component.

    The Loadable Component helps test case developers make sure that the page or a component of the page is loaded successfully. I will share my experience about the concept of the Loadable Component and Page Object patterns.

    45 Mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    Selenium was born for web-application testing. But have you ever thought it could be a great tool for testing Windows desktop apps too?

    Today, more and more desktop apps use a web-like approach to implement their UI. The methods vary from basic HTMLayout environment to complex designs in CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework). However traditional GUI automation tools seem to be a step behind or ignoring the trend completely. This situation calls for finding new ways of testing.

    In our talk we shall introduce to you a new way of utilizing Selenium for automated testing of desktop applications. No matter whether the HTML UI content is completely offline or loaded and updated dynamically, Selenium is able to access and navigate it just like in a web page. We’ll also show you how to build a small framework around it and plug it into your Continuous Integration process. All of this will be demonstrated using a real-life instance of Avast Antivirus for Windows.

    Automated visual testing is a major emerging trend in the dev / test community. In this talk you will learn what visual testing is and why it should be automated. We will take a deep dive into some of the technological challenges involved with visual test automation and show how modern tools address them. We will review available Selenium-based open-source and commercial visual testing tools, demo cutting edge technologies that enable running cross browser and cross device visual tests at large scale, and show how visual test automation fits in the development / deployment lifecycle.

    If you don’t know what visual testing is, if you think that Sikuli is a visual test automation tool, if you are already automating your visual tests and want to learn more on what else is out there, if you are on your way to implement Continuous Deployment or just interested in seeing how cool image processing algorithms can be, this talk is for you!

    Over the last few years, Appium has become the choice automation tool for mobile application UI testing. Most people are familiar with the basics of Appium, but did you know that you Appium can identify elements using image recognition? Did you know you it's also possible to automate Windows phone and Desktop apps with Appium? Have you ever seen Appium run the same test on multiple operating systems, or seen an Appium test run using several devices at once?

    The talk will cover advanced Appium topics such as these along with best practices to ensure you get the most out of Appium.

    Parashuram - Reusing Selenium tests for catching Performance Regressions

    90 Mins
    Demonstration
    Beginner

    Almost all the tests we write today are geared towards verifying the functional correctness of products. Selenium gives us a great way to ensure that our web applications and browser behave correctly and our tests usually do an excellent job running through the happy path.

    Most successful websites or hybrid mobile applications are not just functionally correct, but also have a very smooth performance and user experience. Performance, for many, is now a feature. In this talk, we will look at ways to re-use our selenium test cases to also catch any performance regressions. We will measure key performance indicators like frame rates and memory usage as the selenium scripts navigate and perform actions on the website. We will look at logging all these metrics into a dashboard, and integrating this with a continuous integration system like Jenkis or Team City. Finally, we will also look at how such a system can catch any code change that is responsible for making the website slower than a threshold we set.

     

    We will look at how we could use existing testing frameworks like Protractor or Jest to add performance metrics. We will extend our test matrix to cover desktop browsers, browsers on popular mobile platforms and even hybrid apps like Apache Cordova, Ionic or Phonegap.

     

     

    If Performance is a feature, let us test it like we test features !!

    This talk is about a ruby gem I wrote for adding visual assertion with selenium as driver.

    While we continuously implement new functionalities in our app, automated functional tests acts as safety net and gives us confidence. Still, there is something missing. Many times we get feedback like:
    "Sign-In button has shifted and user have to scroll down to see it"
    "We wanted to change background color of screen-X, it got changed for Screen-Y screen as well"
    "Why has fonts of this link become so tiny?”
    I am working on customer facing enterprise level Mobile apps of one of the biggest airline in the world. For us user experience is as important as functionality.
    Our regression suit did not have capability to catch such issues. Moreover, we started building another airline app from the same codebase with only change in user interface of this new app. This means, change done for one app, affects another. Hence, it became really critical to enhance our automation with visual assertions.
    To accomplish this, I worte my own gem called 'nakal'.http://rubygems.org/gems/nakal

    In this talk I would like to share good practices of BDD , Cucumber Tool and its usage with Selenium with Serenity framework , Appium and API Testing.

    I will be sharing how I had implemented BDD culture in team , which was following Agile ( fast waterfall ) , how it has helped business.

    There are many who know Selenium and are experts in it. But with BDD and Cucumber , it can be used much more efficiently.

     

    The main benefits of this methodology will be reducing bugs , re-work , tech debt , bad customer reviews , cost and increases overall productiveness and happiness across orgnisation

     

    With all these , QA can be assistant cook along with main cook ( who is developer and/or product ) and elevate from traditional waiter role , where some code is thrown at him to deliver to somebody who pays for it.

    Total Continuous Integration is a series of functional and nonfunctional tests that runs periodically with the help of continuous integration tool.

     Writing a script and automating the test cases are really time saving, But it will be more effective if its Headless and runs periodically. Also at the end of every automation scripts we need Reports. This can be easily achieved with the help of continuous integration tool- Jenkins. Jenkins is one open source tool to perform continuous integration and build automation. The basic functionality of Jenkins is to execute a predefined list of steps. The trigger for this execution can be time or event based. 

    In this session we will discuss how to run your selenium scripts, Jmeter scripts or your JS scripts periodically and generate reports on each build. We will also explore how to run a selenium script headlessly with the help of Xvfb.
