ABSTRACT

Title: Next-gen automation framework from a programmers' viewpoint

Writing tests at scale needs planning, processes, and competence - testing teams need all the help they can get. In the years working at Persado, we have deployed automation at scale for all products of the company, by directly influencing the processes, injecting programming best practices, new technologies and processes to the teams. I will be presenting Anax, our second iteration quality assurance framework - GitHub OSS - using Spring Boot, annotations and plugins that enhance Selenium to allow high maintainability, modularity, and flexibility.
