|Scripting for Testers|
A One-day Tutorial
Automated testing means programming, but programming doesn’t have to be hard. Learn how to script tests for web-based software in this hands-on workshop. You’ll use an open-source tool kit to explore techniques for automating browser-based testing. By the end of the day, you’ll have written tests for a sample application using various techniques. You bring a laptop (with Windows 2000 or XP) and we’ll provide the software. Participants are welcome—and indeed encouraged—to pair up with a partner.
What Kind of Scripting?
We’ll show you how to use the Ruby scripting language and the “Web Testing with Ruby” tool kit. Ruby is an easy-to-learn language that can be used for many other kinds of testing and programming as well. We’ll also explain how the same automation techniques can be used with other popular programming languages.
Who Should Attend
Software testers, programmers, managers and anyone interested in developing their automated testing skills.
Tutorial participants should already have learned to program in at least one language and understand basic programming concepts such as variables and if-then statements.
This tutorial has an experiential format. The instructor demonstrates a technique, and then give you an opportunity to practice the technique. Theoretical explanations are generally given only after you have demonstrated basic understanding of the technique.
Because of the hands-on format, enrollment is limited to 12 participants; 24 when a teaching assistant is available.
We strongly encourage you to install the class software before you come to class. Full details on equipment requirements and software installation.
