1. Crafting a Test Framework

This advanced workshop is 4 hours long and walks you through testing a sample application that will help you see how each component works together to streamline the process and make it easier to update your code when needed. Creating a framework that is efficient and easy to use will help you reduce costs because the most expensive part of a Selenium test suite is the maintenance costs which tend to eat up more of your budget than creation or execution.

The workshop will start with discussing how to write good tests and using test data. Then it will move into working with objects on a page and synchronization. Next is encapsulating objects and performing tests at scale. You will learn to prioritize the right things when creating test tooling and how the different framework parts work together.

In order to get the most out of this workshop, you should already have experience with Java. You should also have Git, IntelliJ, and JDK v1.8 or higher installed. This workshop is ideal for testers who either have already written or plan to write automation frameworks. It will also be beneficial for testers who maintain a framework that needs some major improvements.
