Event Details

Today's web applications are increasingly rich and sophisticated, and time-to-market pressure is ever increasing. Projects can no longer afford long manual testing cycles for each release. No modern web application project can hope to deliver reliably and rapidly without high quality automated web tests.

But traditional commercial tools based on record-replay or keyword-based strategies are not sufficient. These tools produce test scripts that require heavy and time-consuming maintenance each time the application changes, time that testers could be spending more productively on more advanced and high-value exploratory testing.

High quality automated web tests need to be written using tools and techniques that produce reliable, sustainable and maintainable test suites. The automated tests need to be written collaboratively by both developers and testers, so the whole team can benefit from the test automation more quickly. This requires skill and practice, but the productivity gains that result are huge.

Course Overview

This intensive two-day workshop will teach you how to write solidreliable, and maintainableautomated web tests using the best-of-breed open source technologies like Selenium WebDriver,Thucydides, JBehave and SpecFlow.

The workshop caters for test automation both Java and .NET developers: Java developers will experiment with the more in-depth features of automated web testing with JBehave and Thucydides, whereas .NET developers will learn about test automation in a .NET environment using SpecFlow and Visual Studio. It will teach you how both testers and developers can collaborate to write more effective automated acceptance and regression tests. And you will learn how these automated tests can fit in to the overall development process to help speed up delivery and reduce both cost and time to market.
