Why U No Test Yur UI?

A session at Stir Trek: Darkness Edition

Friday 17th May, 2013

1:00pm to 2:00pm (EST)

Developers and testers with thousands of smoothly running unit tests have been known to run screaming like little kids away from user interface tests. While those geeks are cowering in terror under the bed (when has that ever worked in the movies?) instead of writing functional or UI tests, significant portions of your application are going unchecked. What’s the source of all this fear, and can teams learn to overcome it and learn some basic concepts to create stable, low-friction, valuable tests around their user interfaces? Of course they can, otherwise this session would be pointless. Attendees will learn the two major areas of grief for UI testing: locators and dynamic (asynchronous) content/controls. You’ll learn the fundamentals of both those problem areas and practical approaches for overcoming their challenges. You’ll take away tips for great UI tests which you’ll be able to apply at your work the next day. Once you get out from under the bed, that is.
