  • Bug Hunting for Fun and Profit

    by martin hall

    Did you know that many companies encourage people to find bugs in their software? Martin will be showing how you can have fun, gain fame and money finding issues in software and websites you use every day. He'll also be showing you some of the basic tips and techniques that will enable you to become a great "Bounty Hunter". We will end the workshop with a testing session against sites that pay you for finding issues. There is a real opportunity to earn thousands of pounds during this workshop.

    Need a Windows PC or Mac running Parallels , either one with Fiddler installed, any modern browser will do.

  • Tarantino of BDD

    by Marton Meszaros

    There are many patterns on the internet about how to implement feature files. There are even many blog posts that teach us how to improve the style of our scenarios by raising the level of abstraction. Even when following those practices, we often end up with unmaintainable code, brittle tests and frustration. We are going to explore another step towards a state where the tool doesn't interfere with capturing the conversations by constraining the language we use. We'll learn about a pattern that could enable looser coupling between steps, cleaner step definition code, happiness and many more.

    At 9:00am to 12:00pm, Friday 18th October

  • The Evil Tester's guide to HTTP proxies and Browser Developer Tools

    by Alan Richardson

    I test a lot of web applications. I use proxy servers to interrogate and manipulate web traffic, and the built in browser developer tools.

    We will cover and go beyond the obvious interrogation and manipulation of traffic and also look at how to use auto-responders, custom rules and traffic generators. The different capabilities of the tools and how to use them in combination.

    We will also look at the new features in modern browsers that help you achieve some of the proxy benefits out of the box, for those moments when you have to test unarmed.

    As well as the tools I want to cover the testing thought processes and models that help you apply the tools in your work.

    Turn up with some modern browsers installed (Chrome, Firefox, Opera), a couple of proxy servers (BurpSuite, Fiddler, Zed Attack Proxy), possibly some plugins (Firebug), to maximize your time in the workshop.

    At 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Friday 18th October
