Appium – Lessons Learned and Why it’ll drive you to drink

Come meet Donavan Stanley and listen to him discuss his lessons learned about what Appium is not good at as well as how to make it manageable. Some of these lessons could drive one to drink, but we’ll leave that portion up to you.

See you in August 2018

We have canceled the June 2018 and July 2018 meetups for the ATDD User group.  For June we were unable to secure a speaker in time.  For July, it happens the week of the July 4th holiday and seems unlikely we would have good attendance.  We’ll resume August 2nd.

If you would like to speak or have a suggestion for a topic, please feel free to reach out.
Thanks

MICROSOFT EDGE TEST AUTOMATION: PAINFUL LIKE INTERNET EXPLORER, BUT NOT IN THE SAME WAY
By: Thomas Haver

Internet Explorer is widely considered to be the most difficult & temperamental browser to automate in the web automation space. The numerous built-in challenges has made controlling the browser difficult compared to the other popular web options. The release of Microsoft Edge with Windows 10 meant Internet Explorer would slowly decline in usage, but the new browser poses difficulties of its own. The initial limited support for the Edge DriverServer meant the capabilities of browser automation were lacking. Additionally, the userbase who converted over to Windows 10 took their favorite browser with them. In this talk, we’ll demonstrate the problems & solutions for test automation on Windows 10 with Edge, complete with a setup that allows automation developers to switch between Edge, Internet Explorer, and other popular browsers for the same test.

PARKING INFORMATION
Park in any lot adjacent to 7 Easton Oval (the Huntington building) and enter through the front door (center of the U shaped building). We’ll have colleagues available to bring guests upstairs to our training rooms.


2018 April’s ATDD Meetup Cancelled

We’re having issues securing space and are unable to find a suitable location for this month’s meetup.

Feb 1 Meetup Details Released!

Come see Donavan Stanley Speak on C^2POE: – Centric Consulting Page Object Experiments: Introducing Captain Hook

Centric Consulting has had the opportunity to execute numerous automation projects over the years, giving us the privilege to see hundreds of solutions to the same sets of problems.  Some solutions proved to be well thought-out and architected, while others did not. In response to what we learned from our experience on the projects, we started building C2POE to share solutions to some of the common problems that don’t already have credible off the shelf solutions.

In this presentation, we will discuss one of our experiments designed to make managing Page State easier and reduce the amount of defensive code in your automation suites. Captain Hook provides a mechanism to apply before/after hooks to arbitrary methods on objects.

  • Need to make sure an element is scrolled into view every time before interaction?

  • Need a complex series of events fired before/ after interacting with a field?

  • Want to make sure that navigation completes before returning control?

Captain Hook can handle these complexities behind the scenes while keeping your code DRY and clean.
