Automated Testing: Go Beyond the Basics
You've been through some initial automation bootstrapping and training. You're now three to six months down the road and spending too much time chasing intermittent test failures and maintaining your scripts. You're dealing with frustration and trust issues in the automated tests. What you're not doing is adding a lot of value around new feature work. Sound familiar? Jim Holmes says that pattern is common across nearly every team that is new to building significant automation suites. Jim helps you with a few approaches—all based on his years of experience and hard knocks—that may just save your sanity. This isn't a WebDriver 101 session. Jim won't be covering basics like waits, find logic, or basic page objects. Instead, he'll dive right into solving problems using software craftsmanship principles, custom-designed APIs, and approaches like Selenium Grid to help you scale up your test suites via parallel execution. Leave Jim’s session with practical tips to apply to your own testing.
