NEXT SQAUG EVENT: Building an open-source Test Automation Framework


How and Why I Built an Open Source
Test Automation Framework

CPAN TAF is a generic open source Test Automation Framework for anyone and every task, which is self-contained, independent, and flexible for extension and integration.

The framework is a principle-driven build with plug-in and p2p architecture, which addresses automation challenges by four principles. This presentation discusses and demonstrates how these principles are materialized.
Dr. Wang will demonstrate why he created the principles and the framework, which he will outline in tonight’s discussion.

Our speaker/moderator today: Dr. Yongyan Wang - Before working in Software QA industry, Dr. Wang developed the "Inverse Modeling theory" in his PhD program to guide numerical simulations to understand generic linear and non-linear problems.  The theory was applied to system modeling, like pollutant transport simulation, tsunami analysis, and Columbia River Hydrodynamics Modeling.  His research also developed a multi-media info system for St John's Landfill Ecosystem for the local government.

After joining in the software quality assurance field, Dr. Wang focused on test automation. He has extensive experience with applying automation tools, like QTP, Expect, autoIt to address QA automation needs. While using different automation tools to solve different types of automation tasks, Yongyan Wang developed an open source automation framework (CPAN TAF) to integrate automation effort with the goal of adhering to his four principles. The framework has been used in several projects, including, QTP-UI testing, Jira automation, autoIt, lab equipment monitoring, database algorithm testing. In this webinar, he will discuss the automation challenges and demonstrate how the automation framework can address those issues.

The TAF is a self-contained, language independent framework. It runs on both Window and Linux operations.

SQAUG is Portland/Vancouver area’s only Software Quality Assurance User Group! We are NEW, and would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone who would like to participate in a user group dedicated to growing the Quality Assurance field.

SQAUG is made up of a group of SQA professionals who have banded together in an open forum to learn from each other through a series of interactive discussions, engaged debates, training presentations, exploring tools, and general networking and sharing of job opportunities. Our goals are to expand knowledge about Software Quality to all professionals who are passionate about their careers, and take Software Quality seriously.

    There is ample parking on site at Con-Way and signs that direct you to the lot in the chain link fence area right in front.

    I don't see any info on the on-site parking. What's the scoop on that?

    Do you guys have beer at your event? I help run the Selenium Meetup and was thinking of not having it this month's event and sending all our folks here....but not having a beer makes it feel too much like work to me :-).
