    Hi Nishil

    There are already many frameworks available over Selenium.  And bdd tools have their own advantage and usage which is not necessarily related to only automation but an approach to product and team communication.

    So comparing them wont be fair in here. What do you think about it?

    As far as Tesbo is concerned and this talk can it be done in 20 mins? 

    If it had to.

      Hi Pallavi,

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, I exactly understood BDD, Its Development Practice instead of Test Automation Tool/Framework. But most of the time its discuss while QA and Automation come into the picture. No one is discussing this as part of Dev Practices. 

      I'm not trying to compare Tesbo with BDD, I just tried to convey its NOT BDD. 

      Yes, My talk to Introduce Tesbo would be completed in 20 Min.

    Can you please explain "Free for Now" on the Tesbo Report (Beta) , as per https://www.tesbo.io/ ?

    Also, can you please highlight differences between Cucumber, Specflow, Gauge or TagUI and Tesbo?

    For integrations to external systems like Slack, JIRA, Zapier etc, do you have framework APIs exposed? Or the Automation engineer would have to setup external integrations themselves?

      Hello Robin, 

      Thank you for Review my proposal, here is the details about the Question.

      Can you please explain "Free for Now" on the Tesbo Report (Beta), as per https://www.tesbo.io/?
      • Currently, Tesbo has two main components, One is Framework which helps you to write Test, Run them and generate a local report which is on IDE or Editor level and Another one is the Cloud report which is a web application and helps you keep history and provides you a Test Analytics. 
      • We wanted to commercialize the Cloud Report later but we have not decided the complete strategy yet and that is why have made this available for trial, free for now, 
      Also, can you please highlight differences between Cucumber, Specflow, Gauge or TagUI and Tesbo?
      • Honestly, I don’t much idea about the TagUI but here are the few points that highlight the main difference between Tesbo and other tools.
        • In Tesbo, you don’t need to map English language Text to code snippet to run step which is actually an overhead for the Tester to maintain the feature file and code as well, Tesbo is the Keyword-based framework, where you just need a plain English language to write a Test, Almost no code., Tesbo internal engine will understand the step text and perform the action based on it.  
        • However, if you required to write a code for some situation, you can do it in Java as similar to cucumber, Specflow, etc.
      For integrations to external systems like Slack, JIRA, Zapier, etc, do you have framework APIs exposed? Or the Automation engineer would have to set up external integrations themselves?
      • Currently, Tesbo Report is in the development stage and Slack and JIRA integration are in our Road Map, We are going to develop an API for that so it will be very easy for anyone to Integrate.

    "This world is such a beautiful place to live in." If you can read the first sentence without any screen readers or assistance, you're privileged. As technologists, shouldn’t we be more empathetic towards differently-abled people and make all parts of our website accessible to them? In my humble opinion, the true power of technology can be identified when it reaches out to people of all kinds having different physical or psychological challenges. We not only legally bound to provide Accessibility but also it should be considered as our moral responsibility.

    As testers, we have a wonderful opportunity to contribute to Accessibility by ensuring that the site is accessible in many different ways. Although it is impossible to identify all the issues that exist around Accessibility in the world, we are lucky enough to still understand a majority of them. With this understanding, there have been many measures taken in order to make your site accessible. But, don’t forget - we are QA engineers. We got to ensure that the site is accessible as per the standards set by WCAG 2.0 (AA) by testing for accessibility using various tools and techniques.

    Problem Statement:

    As part of SDLC process:

    1. Is your product quality impacted due to a smaller number of QA resources available in the team?
    2. Are you waiting for QA resources to certify your code every time when you deploy? Is this impacting your product lead time (Speed to Market)?
    3. Is your Product delivery timelines are impacted due to last minute defects identified?
    4. Do you have your QA resources only in one location, but you want to “follow-the-sun” approach for Software delivery across multiple locations?
    5. Do you have manual testers who are not skilled in programming, but you want them to execute automated test scripts w/o any training efforts and automation setup?
    6. Would you like your team more agile and cross functional with Delivery?
    7. Would you like to increase your QA team’s productivity while they invest more time in script development rather than script execution?

    If answer is ‘Yes’ for above questions, "Zero touch automation" is the solution for above challenges that we have been facing part of SDLC.

    Solution: Zero touch automation with cutting-edge technologies

    In this session, I will cover how we solved this problem using innovative solutions, Cutting-edge technologies like NLP (Natural language processing), AI & Cloud solutions.

    You will learn how AI, NLP integrated with core automation components to achieve Zero touch automation.

    This solution is not just revolutionary, it is paradigm shift in test automation to get results to your email with detailed analysis of failure categorization with recommended actions to users.

    I will also cover how E2E automation will be driven with decisions taken by machines based on what user is looking for . There is no manual intervention in this process. NLP and AI play key role to help machines to take decisions.

    We will also cover how we empowered developer/release manager/any team member/Manager to trigger the scripts from their cell phone and get the detailed execution report without having any automation software installed in their computer or Phone.

    We will be demonstrating how the request will be initiated from User, understand the need from user using NLP & AI , Fetching the code from bitbucket to select appropriate automation scripts , running them on Selenoid/docker server , storing results to MongoDB , receiving email with test results and Failure analysis.

    What is the value of zero touch automation?

    1. Enable speed to market: Now that Developers does not need to wait for QA resource, Changes can be certified quickly and ready to push to production. Lead time will be significantly reduced.
    2. Increase quality: Now that test automation is easy and it can run multiple times in each environment, most of the defects will be uncovered and addressed before code goes to production.
    3. Ease of test execution: Test execution will be very easy, no automation or framework setup required from user side. Test execution can be done 24*7.
    4. Productivity: Increase QA team’s Productivity to focus more on script development rather than focusing on script execution and failure analysis .

    Case Study

    In my talk, I want to share several approaches that help to improve automation testing in your company.

    Do you want to spend less time developing UI automated tests? Maybe you want to reduce boilerplate code in UI tests? Or you think it is time to improve Page Object pattern that has been used for more than 8 years?

    My first point will be about how the interface can help us to represent a new vision of Page Object and what benefits we could get from it.

    The second - modern methods for coverage measuring are good only for development. However, the amount of useful information from coverage reports is extremely small.

    It will a journey about autotest coverage. Imagine, that your project manager asks you - Do we have autotests for these buttons (forms, pages) or what autotests cover these Rest APIs with 'special' query parameters? I will show you two simple solutions that allow you to evaluate the coverage of tests written by test automation specialists.

    a) API tests. There is a swagger and during his execution, we also collect a swagger. We count coverage as a diff of two swaggers. We can see what is covered, what is not and what data used.

    b) Web tests. During the execution of tests, we collect information about elements, pages, and actions. As a result, we have such a format: page -> elements -> actions -> tests. All information representing in Chrome Plugin, that I will share with you.

    And last, I am going to consider what cons have current TMS (QA time management systems) and what to do if you want to make an automation-first strategy on your project? Moreover, you look for one TMS for developers and QAs/or you want to save the Allure report of all autotests in one place?

    Here you are! Allure Server has already released. I will overview the most important features and how to start using it from scratch.

    If you have an interest in the above themes come to my talk.

    One of the biggest limitations with most of the frameworks in selenium is that we need to wait till the end to get the final test case report. Only then we can raise the alert that a particular functionality is broken. By then, it may be too late! In addition to this, in most of the frameworks, the HTML report generated is hosted on our company's private network and we need to connect to the VPN if we are outside the office to open the report and check the related screenshots to see which test case has failed and why.

    So, why not raise an alert as soon as the test case fails? And why not attach a screenshot along with that alert so that all the stakeholders can actually see what has failed in the application?

    In this session, we will learn a simple yet a really useful way of sending an alert along with the failed test case screenshot by integrating slack with selenium which will help us alert all the stakeholders as soon as an automated test case fails so that everyone can react to it immediately and the damage will be minimised.

    Quick Description :

    To support the continuously evolving software industry, DevOps and Agile practices have established themselves as a big helping hand. With ever-increasing large scale digital transformation projects, organizations realize that the only way to shorten the product development cycles is to automate the processes involved in the delivery pipeline.

    There are many tools and technologies to establish DevOps, but one of the most important ones is containerization, which gives flexibility in application packaging and automating a number of processes involved in the delivery pipeline. Containers have all the needed configurations and dependencies, for faster delivery of committed items to the customer. Docker is an open-source solution that makes it easier to create, deploy and run applications securely using containers. Therefore, quick feedback and testing applications with different environments can be achieved using Selenium with Docker.

    My Proposal :

    We can reduce the significant effort in provisioning, maintaining, running the Test Automation on different environment setup using, Docker with Test Automation. Some of the benefits are:

    Benefits of using Docker with Selenium:

    1. Test an application on multiple browsers and their different versions without installing them on multiple machines
    2. To test multiple application builds concurrently without updating the code for different environments
    3. To test your applications on multiple devices/OS/Browser combinations on a single machine.As Selenium within Docker will make it much quicker to test different environments by using the preconfigured containers.
    4. Also, I will cover topics like how to set up the Selenium multi-environment setup using Docker concepts like Compose file, etc.

    A key requirement for successful test automation is to get past the brittle or fragile nature of test scripts. Any Selenium (or Appium) developer has encountered the dreaded "NoSuchElement Exception". A locator that worked yesterday may fail today. What's a test engineer to do?

    Fortunately the field of AI provides promising solutions and allows for the creation of self-healing tests. Tests that can find elements across all environments. Tests that can learn from "human-in-the-loop" intervention and work perfectly thereafter. Imagine automated tests that "just work"!

    This session will look at how to apply the latest in AI and Machine Learning technologies to improve your test scripts. With the plethora of new open source AI libraries made available by companies such as Google, the ability to leverage AI in your applications is more accessible than ever.

    This session will be a primer on AI technologies and how they can be utilized for perfect test automation.
