Open Sourced Tests: Lessons Learned
At STARWEST 2021, NASA Open MCT announced its Open Source e2e Testing Initiative. While the project continues to be a success, there were some learning opportunities (read: challenges) we'd like to share with the testing community.... when crowdsourcing a seven year old application... with no existing e2e tests... with a nascent framework like Playwright Test. In this talk, come learn about what was necessary to start the open source e2e test initiative, how we prepared, what we learned, and how we adjusted. We'll discuss test automation architecture patterns, an alternative to the Screenplay and Page Object Model called App Actions, and Playwright Best Practices. Lastly, we'll end with the current state of the project and where we're going next... to the Moon!
