Automated Browser Testing in JavaScript

Workshop scheduled at 1:00-4:00 in Room 2 (Swain)

Manually testing your website after every change is a pain, but setting up a test automation tool can be even worse. Instead of struggling through Java, what if you could just use JavaScript? WebdriverIO makes automated testing friendly by providing a NodeJS interface for Selenium-based testing.

This workshop will dive deep in to WebdriverIO, an open-source library used for Selenium testing. We’ll cover all the steps to get started writing automated browser tests.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Install and run WebdriverIO test scripts
  • Understand the layers of automated browser testing
  • Be able to integrate tests with third-party tools like Jenkins and Sauce Labs
  • Have a solid list of next steps for implementing testing on their projects

Attendee Skill Level:

  • Basic Node.JS
  • Intermediate Javascript
  • Basic command line
