Interested in Testbirds? Schedule a meeting with us now!

Other than our booth (number 27), which you can find left of the entrance to the stage, our colleague Felix Kuperjans, Technical Lead Device Cloud, will hold a lecture on Friday at 3:30 pm. He will talk about: “A complete Selenium Techstack: From conception to evaluation with open source software”

What is German Testing Day about?

Please read, what organisers say about German Testing Day:

“The German Testing Day is a company-independent conference on software quality assurance and its significance for the entire IT industry.
The focus of the conference is on the exchange of experiences. The German Testing Day is aimed at all those involved in the quality assurance of business IT systems as well as embedded systems and therefore offers an excellent platform for all people in the IT sector.”

Lecture of Felix Kuperjans – What is he talking about?

The title of Felix’s lecture is “A complete Selenium Techstack: From conception to evaluation with open source software”. But what does that mean? Let me give you a rough impression of what you can expect.
As you probably know, every test automation project typically has 4 segments:
– Test case design
– Test case creation
– Test execution
– Test result evaluation.

Each of these steps has its own challenges and difficulties.

1. Challenges when designing a test case:

Make it readable: So, it is easier to analyse errors and it ensures that misunderstandings do not take place and therefore creates a positive collaboration.

Structure it: As this ensures logical subdivision, for example, in precondition, action and confirmation.

Make it reusable: You want to reduce possible sources of error, improve maintainability and raise scalability.

Back away from technical aspects of the test: The use of descriptive language sets a focus on functional instead of technical aspects.

2. Challenges when creating a test case:

Make it stable: This helps reduce the amount of so called “false negatives”, accelerate each test run and get valid results on multiple platforms.

Make it reusable: You want to reduce possible sources of error, improve maintainability and raise scalability.

Use best practices: They prevent you from using unsuitable practices and promote proven approaches such as dealing with typical browser issues.

3. Challenges when executing a test:

Run it as often as possible: Which means to have an event- and time-controlled conduction of E2E-tests, for example, after every commitment phase or every night.

Make it parameterisable: Make sure you run the same test in different environments and on different browser and OS combinations.

Secure logical connectivity: Which means to only run E2E-tests after a successful build and deployment on the test environment.

4. Challenges evaluating the test results:

Make it assessable: Ensure a free determinable evaluation and categorisation of test run errors as well as automatic mapping for frequently recurring errors.

Structure it: Group your test results reasonably by product version, test environment and browser/OS combination.

Make it debugable: Integrate stackstraces, error logs screenshots and video recordings, linking to specifications and issue trackers.

Visualise it: Ensure graphic processing of the test results, configurable dashboards and automatic error messages.

Felix will show how you can overcome these difficulties without spending a single cent on tools. How? By only using open source tools! So, come and learn. This advanced session targets technical test engineers and people in charge of test automation with both coding and selenium knowledge. Please be aware that the lecture will be in German only and remember, it´ll be on Friday, June 7th at 3:30 pm.

Felix is looking forward to discussing this topic with you.
