Slides from vodQA Pune - Less Talk, Only Action! now available

vodQA-Pune - Less Talk, Only Action! was held on on Saturday, 27th Aug 2016, 8.30am - 5.30pm at ThoughtWorks, Pune. 


Agenda


Abstracts with Slides


1. Automating Web Analytics - Why? How?

Do you know –
What is Web Analytics?
How does Web Analytics work?
Why is it important? How to test Web Analytics?
How can we ensure correct data is sent to the Web Analytics server, every time, for all the actions?


Attend this workshop to learn ‘What is Web Analytics?’ and why it is an extremely important aspect of Software Development & Testing for your product / service to succeed!


We will share some techniques for testing Web Analytics - in a non-automated way - and why that is very challenging and error-prone.


We will learn, via hands-on activity, about WAAT - Web Analytics Automation Testing Framework (https://essenceoftesting.blogspot.com/search/label/waat) - an open-source solution, to automate validation of correct information / tags being sent to the Web Analytic server for different user actions as part of your regular Selenium-WebDriver Test Automation Framework.


Lastly, we will see how the impact of Analytics has changed dramatically with more adoption and spread of IoT (Internet of Things) and Big Data, and what we need to do to be part of the change, if not influencers of change!

Slides: automating-web-analytics


2. Performance testing with Gatling for Beginners

Gatling is a server side performance testing tool. This workshop aims at giving introduction to Gatling and facilitating participants to write their first performance tests using Gatling.
> Brief intro to Gatling
> Using Postman to check stub server(created using mountebank for workshop)
> Write a sample test using gatling (pre set up machines are provided)


Slides: gatling-performance-workshop



3. Game of Test Automation

We are going to use a game to work out the WHY, WHAT and HOW of test automation within the context of consumers, application, skillset, mindset, etc.



4. Security Testing - Operation Vijay

It is now the days of the web. All businesses move their applications online for their customers to use.
Many of these applications contain critical data of the customers such as credit card details, their personal details and so on. These data are very valuable. If these data fall in the wrong hands, they can have disastrous consequences.
Attacks on these systems can destroy the trust that the customers have for the business, they can cause great losses to the customers as well as the business, and so on.
The motivation behind attacks could be different like earning money, earning popularity, destroying a competitor company, etc.
No matter what the intention of the attack is, we need to develop safe applications and we need to know the various vulnerabilities and the consequences of our decisions when we develop applications.
Similarly, we should be aware of the various vulnerabilities before we test the applications so that we can try and exploit it during the testing phase and ensure better quality and safer applications.

5. Automate your Mobile tests with Appium

Introduction to Appium.
Appium design for Android and iOS
How to locate elements on android and iOS applications(Inspector).
Hands-on code snippet for android and iOS(Wordpress as sample app)
Generating reports (ExtentReports)
Evolve code snippet written above into a Page Object Framework.


6. Increase Automation to REST

What are web services and why we use them?
How to test a web service in multiple ways?
Increased familiarity with automation
Tools used : rest client, postman (mention alternatives), unirest JAVA and requests python


7. Let's cook Cucumber

In this workshop we will be covering:
  • Advantages of BDD through cucumber example.
  • Framework setup along with JAVA and Selenium.
  • Writing one end to end test case in real world.
  • If time permits - will be covering basic Refactoring


Slides: lets-cook-cucumber

8. Mobile Automation using Espresso

Imagine a situation where every commit spits out a build that can be deployed to production with confidence. In today's startup era, this can be a huge boost to business as it will reduce the time to market. UI Automation for mobile apps, be it native or hybrid, has been painful since long. But with mature frameworks coming up and Google/Apple realizing the importance of such tools, UI Automation is gaining traction in the mobile space. 
This talk is basically to understand what and why of espresso along with automating a simple scenario using espresso.
