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.

What will you learn?

  • How to write tests in Robot Framework?
  • How to develop Robot Framework libraries?
  • How to test web applications with Selenium in two ways – with Python and with Robot Framework.
  • How to write tests with unittest library.
  • How regular expressions can be useful?
  • How to work with databases with SQLAlchemy?
  • How to test forms on websites?
  • And much, much more.
