Training: Automated Testing in RobotFramework and Python for Testers

Recommended Duration 4 days (minimum 6 hours + breaks each day)
Requirements basic programming skills
Intended Audience Testers
Language Polish or/and English
Main Technologies Robot Framework, Selenium, Basics of Python, Unittest, SQLAlchemy

A workshop targeted to testers of web applications. In this course, participants learn how to control web browser using Selenium and write tests in Robot Framework or Python. Robot Framework is a simple DSL that is easier than Python to learn for less advanced testers. On top of that, participants learn how to work with files, regular expressions and databases.
