Speaker: Lee Manchur
Topic: Effective test automation requires using the same principles and practices as “real” software development, but often QA teams are expected to write and maintain their own test automation frameworks without a development background. With this in mind, we asked our company’s developers to take a hard look at our automated test architecture, and were amazed at the efficiencies they found! This presentation will explore developer-initiated ideas for functional Selenium and API test suites which helped our team increase our coding efficiency by 50%, and, overall, become more effective testers (and developers). We will explore, in the context of automated tests, effective Object Oriented Design use (but no, this not “yet another” Page Object tutorial!), using abstract classes to maximize code reuse, quickly compare data sets with reflection, and using delegate patterns and methods to generate data. These ideas might be obvious to developers, but are new design patterns to add to the toolbox for most testers.
