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.


Outline/Structure of the Demonstration

  • This talk will be a combination of this talk presented at GDG Sydney 2016: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HToZ7opjWN8 and this 55-minute lightning talk presented at Agile Australia 2015: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srCJRRx68eo
  • Sam presented on creating compelling tests at YOW! Connected last year.
  • This year Sam and Tappy McTapFace will be touring the world, they have been accepted to present at WeTest in New Zealand and EuroSTAR in Copenhagen.

Learning Outcome

  • Learn about open source 3D printable robots
  • Explore ideas on mobile automation testing
  • Learn about running events that raise the testing culture

Target Audience

Mobile developers and anyone testing mobile applications

    Wow! "Tappy, Tapsterbot and let robot automate" - very interesting and I see huge possibilities for Tappy getting a huge fan following with the talk. Thanks for proposing this Samantha, personally I'm damn curious to try this out.

    - Are these same Tappy? https://2017.hackerspace.govhack.org/project/tappy-mctapface-income-tax-bot

    - Is Tappy open-sourced? If not, do you plan to opensource Tappy or at-least base kickstart code/design steps/guideline link sharing so the attendees have more excitement and feel definiteness in key learnings to implement right after?
