    Running Selenium tests in parallel, part 1

    Anton Semenchenko

    Parallel run of Automated tests is not just a wish, but a real necessity, standard task which sooner or later any project meets. Sometimes, parallel run becomes very difficult or even impossible task. How to avoid such kind of a situation? What recommendations may be used for parallel test execution, what tools are better to use and what architecture for automated tests should be chosen at the beginning? We'll try to answer all these questions and of course will take a look at a dozen of examples to consolidate the proposed material. Then we are going to get focused on the opposite side of the medal and talk about 10 ways of "bad" – hard, slow, expensive, inefficient parallel run of tests on real examples. Our discussion will in fact consist of 2 parts: "what is good and what is bad" - with real examples and recommendations.

  • 11:00 - 11:10

    Opening

  • 11:10 - 13:30

    Master class. Test automation in Python

    Andrey Stakhievich

    Master class. Test automation in Python

  • 13:30 - 14:10

    Coffee Break

  • 14:10 - 16:10

    Master class. Docker in Automated Testing

    Andrei Varabyeu

    Docker became an extremely popular tool for software engineers and DevOps, but still is not heavily used for automated testing. During the workshop I'll share several use cases where Docker can help to automate things that were considered 'impossible to automate'. Also we will play with creating own images and bootstrapping several containers using docker-compose.

  • 16:20 - 17:20

    Master class. Functional and automated testing metrics

    Anton Semenchenko

    Functional and Automated testing metrics is one of the topics which is discussed at almost any IT conference. The metrics allow you to get a feedback from every process where they are used and this information can guarantee a good ground for building a communication with the customer and many other useful practices. In the report we’ll show what metrics are, talk about metrics definitions and classification and of course about fire-alarms in metrics and acceptance criteria. As a bonus we’ll discuss and find out which metrics should be used in different types of projects.

  • 17:30 - 18:30

    Master class. QA Automation ROI Calculator

    Anton Semenchenko

    We are going to talk how to develop and successfully use ROI Calculator for QA Automation, adapt an Algorithm for internal and external Automation selling. The algorithm consists of 5 steps. There are 4 documents as input and 5 documents as output. However, we get more than just a set of papers, we get answers to the questions either QA Automation is profitable or not, what to test, when to test and how to test. It gives us a confidence, a meaningful confidence if project will be successful or not. We are going to share our Algorithm and discuss it, describe input and output documents and look at several examples.
