DAQAA November Workshop: Testing Web Applications

November 13, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

An introduction to writing webdriver based browser automation, understanding html, selectors, page objects, best practices, common traps, evaluating automation opportunities and more.
Stretch topics may include comparing webdriver based testing with cypress and render style unit tests.


While it’s preferred these be installed before the workshop I’ll cover installing these if needed.

As this is a workshop, attendance will be limited and food will be provided midway through the night.
